Apple has released an optional update to its new M1 Mac mini.
Spotted by 9to5Mac, Apple now sells the M1 Mac mini with a new optional configuration: a 10 Gigabit Ethernet port. The option, which was previously only available on the Intel Mac mini, will cost an additional $100.
Today's news confirms a report from back in November of 2020 where it was discovered that Apple had listed a 10 Gigabit Ethernet port for an M1 Mac mini in a service document. It was unclear at the time if Apple would release the configuration, and it obviously has.
Besides the update to the Mac mini, Apple also released a completely redesigned iMac with M1 processor today.
