The annual Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) will be held by Apple from June 6–10. According to rumours circulating on the internet, the tech giant is gearing up to reveal a variety of new products at the event, including a reimagined iPad, updated MacBook Air models, a mixed reality headset, and an iPhone with an always-on display.
According to a recent report, Apple may also be preparing to unveil a Mac mini with an M2 system-on-chip. B&H Photo Video has featured an “Apple MAC Mini 8/256 M2” on their website. That’s probably a device with an M2 chip, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage.
A Mac mini with an M2 processor is expected to be released alongside a new MacBook Air by Apple. As the M1 processor was released with new models of the MacBook Air, Mac mini, and MacBook Pro, ensuring some kind of parity across those product lines makes sense.
B&H Photo Video also has a listing for “Apple MAC MINI TOWER 8/256 M1P,” which suggests a larger surprise. In general, it appears to be a Mac mini with an M1 Pro processor, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage. but it’s a little more difficult to make sense of the word “tower.”
According to 9to5Mac, a new Mac Pro with Apple’s bespoke silicon is what B & H Photo Video is referring to. That shouldn’t come as a huge shock. The Mac Pro was last upgraded in 2019, and every other Mac has received or been discontinued by the company’s M1 chip, which was introduced in 2019.
