Jon Prosser, a famous leaker specializing in Apple has unveiled the future Mac Mini of Apple.
According to him, it will feature a new redesign. In recent months, a famous Apple-focused leaker named Jon Prosser has been generating buzz. Prosser has been behind some of the most important leaks of the year that have come true with the launch in some countries of the AirTags or the 24-inch iMac. And Prosser is back with a new leak.
This time, about the Mac Mini M1X, which will be the new high-end Mac Mini designed for professionals. This new Mac Mini, according to Prosser, will replace the space gray Mac with an Intel chip that is still being sold today. It will feature the future high-end Apple Silicon processor that we will one day see in the next-generation Mac Pro.
This new Mac Mini will change its design, getting a reflective chassis and more ports on the back. To top it off, it will adopt the magnetic connector that Apple has introduced on the 24-inch iMac, similar to the old MagSafe.
New Mac Mini rumor
According to Prosser, a new Mac Mini that could be considered ‘Pro’ is about to be launched. This, as we have said, will replace the space gray Mac Mini that Apple still sells and that is also obsolete since it mounts eighth-generation Intel processors. The idea behind this Mac is to offer a Mac Mini dedicated to users who require high specifications.
Renders leaked by Prosser and RendersByIan show a Mac Mini that would follow Apple’s design language, with a uniquely built chassis. It will feature a reflective surface “similar to Plexiglas” and will inherit the magnetic connector debuted on the 24-inch iMac. It is not known if it will have more colors.
Due to the design limitations of the first Apple Silicon chip, the M1, the ports were somewhat sparse. The previous generation had only 2 Thunderbolt ports, which can be very insufficient for a user who needs a lot of connectivity and does not want to be tied to the HDMI port it comes with.
In this case, this would change a lot; in addition to USB-A, the new generation Mac Mini would have 4 Thunderbolt ports in addition to a Gigabit Ethernet port and an HDMI port. It would eliminate the plastic finish that usually has this part of the Mac Mini chassis and would go for a much cleaner design.
Prosser claims that this Mac Mini would mount the future Apple M1X, the more powerful version of the M1 that Bloomberg reported last week and that will give life to future redesigned MacBooks. This will be powerful enough for a professional user who requires high performance without needing to go to the most powerful Mac device. It will support up to 64GB of RAM, 10 cores of power, and a better GPU.
The fact that the top is reflective indicates, according to Prosser, that there is a possibility that Apple will also include two-tone colors as it has done with the iMac. Something, which on the other hand, would not make much sense since Apple’s most powerful devices tend to have more serious finishes, and the more-consumer-oriented ones are the ones that are adopting such colors.
