While the Mac mini didn't get any airtime at Apple's "Peek Performance" event, it appears Apple still has big plans for its tiny desktop.
According to a report from 9to5Mac, Apple is planning to release new versions of the Mac mini packed with the unreleased M2 and M2 Pro processor. The M2 chip is reportedly based on the A15 Bionic chip and will include an 8-core CPU and 10-core GPU.
The report also claims that Apple will release a version powered by the M2 Pro chip which will feature a 12-core CPU.
The report says that development of the M2 Mac mini is nearly complete and that the company could announce the new version as soon as this year.
While we have to wait to see what happens with the Mac mini but, in the meantime, we can enjoy the Mac Studio, Apple's brand new desktop computer that the company announced alongside the new Studio Display.
