Mac mini enthusiasts may be laughing again in the coming months. After four years of scarcity, the small desktop computer is finally entitled to an update by the end of the year Bloomberg, confirming the information of the analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
Better than that, always according to Bloomberg, whose sources are usually well informed about the future products of Cupertino, the new Mac mini "Will mainly appeal to professional users". It would have new options in storage and processor that could make it more expensive than the current models, starting at 549 €.
Journalist Mark Gurman does not say it, but it is safe to say that Mac mini plus pro will also benefit from one or more Thunderbolt 3 ports, making it compatible with eGPUs.
That is not all, Apple could also attract lovers of notebooks that had a limited budget with the launch of a partially revised MacBook Air.
It looks like the current MacBook Air, but would have a thinner edge around the screen (the size would be 13 "), and especially this screen would be retina, it would be cheaper than the 12" MacBook that was $ 1.299 / 1.499 sold € – we do not know if this family will evolve at the same time. Expected release by the end of the year, also a priori around $ 1,000.
Finally, Bloomberg repeats that there are three new iPhone on the program, as well as extensive Apple Watch on the screen and a new iPad Pro.
