According to new reports citing Bloomberg‘s Mark Gurman, the tech giant is gearing up to release a Mac mini with a new form factor alongside the rumored upcoming MacBook Pro models. Both machines will carry the more powerful “M1X” chip that Apple has been said to be developing over the past year, although its specs have yet to be released. The upgraded Mac mini will offer more ports on its body and most likely come at a higher price point given its boosted performance, while the regular M1 model will be retained as the basic and more affordable option. No specific release date has been suggested yet either, but Gurman says it’ll arrive in “the next several months.”
As usual, Apple hasn’t confirmed any of the rumors revolving around both the new Mac mini or MacBook Pro models, so fans of the brand should definitely stay tuned for more updates to come.
Elsewhere in tech, one of Steve Jobs’ last emails outlined plans for an “iPhone Nano.”
