Η Apple redesigns almost its entire product line by upgrading them with its own chips. The company is expected to organize many events in September, in which it will announce its new products. Now, a new report from him Mark Gurman of Bloomberg claims that Apple is expected to announce and release in the "coming months" and a upgraded and redesigned high-end Mac mini with the company's fastest "M1X" processor.
In the latest newsletter, Gurman writes that the new high-end Mac mini will feature one new design with additional ports, while it is expected to replace the current Intel Mac mini in the coming months. If this claim is true, then the new Mac mini may be released alongside the redesigned 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro this fall.
Gurman says that the Mac mini is generally used for more basic tasks, such as video streaming, but many also use it for software development, server or video editing. For this reason, Apple had powered the Mac mini with its M1 chip but had also kept the Intel model. Now, Gurman says that Apple will bring an upgraded Mac mini with the M1X processor, which will offer many features and will replace the model with an Intel processor.
Older leaks from May indicate that the upcoming Mac mini will have a "plexiglass" surface at the top and a magnetic power port, while it is said that it will have additional ports.
As mentioned above, in the fall Apple is preparing to launch many new products, such as iPhone 13, the Apple Watch Series 7, a new iPad mini, an updated iPad, new AirPods and the completely redesigned 14 and 16 inch MacBook Pros. According to a new report from Gurman, Apple may launch its new MacBook Pro along with the new Mac mini in an event that will focus on the new chips. Apple held an event last year that focused on the M1 chip.
