M1X Mac Mini with added ports might be coming this Fall

M1X Mac Mini with added ports might be coming this Fall

The Mac Mini is perhaps one of the unsung heroes of the Mac family. Despite or perhaps because of its small footprint, many owners have used the small box in ways that Apple probably didn't initially design it for. Being one of the first to benefit from Apple's more powerful M1 Silicon only served to raise its profile as a multimedia workhorse, a reputation that Apple might actually build on with a new high-end Mac Mini that's coming in the next few months.

New MacBook Pro port details leak after Apple supplier hack

A ransomware gang suggests this week that they've broken past security of the Apple contractor Quanta. They've suggested that they're holding secret and/or private information hostage, including data and drawings on a pair of Apple products that have not yet been released to the public.

Mac mini DTKs have to be returned by March 31, credit now $500

Mac mini DTKs have to be returned by March 31, credit now $500

Apple giveth and Apple taketh away. While there's really no contesting Apple's right to take back the Developer Transition Kits or DTKs it sold to developers last year, developers were a bit taken aback by what Apple was giving them in return. Apple did finally reconsider but it seems that its higher offer for returning the historic DTK wasn't going to be applied equally in all countries where the kits were distributed.

Apple Mac Pro mini rumored with “cube” aesthetic

There's a rumor this week that Apple's diving back in to the desktop business head first. Not that the company ever really left, but given the amount of users that are now either working from home or plan on staying home after months and months of global pandemic and quarantine due to COVID-19, Apple seems to be seeing the opportunity to ramp up their desktop efforts once more.

Apple wants its M1 Mac mini DTKs back for a measly credit

Apple wants its M1 Mac mini DTKs back for a measly credit

When Apple formally announced it would truly be jumping into the ARM-based ecosystem, developers were naturally worried about how they'd be able to develop and test their apps on those upcoming computers. Of course, one can always use an emulator but, as the name itself implies, it doesn't really give developers the full hardware story. Some device manufacturers often provide development hardware kits for that exact purpose and Apple did so with its Developer Transition Kit or DTK based on the Mac mini. Now Apple is telling developers to return those prototypes which, while unsurprising, feels almost cold-hearted.

Mac mini M1 Review – The great Apple leveler

Of all the reasons to be excited by Apple Silicon, its potential to put high-end performance in more affordable computers like the Mac mini M1 could be the biggest. Apple's diminutive desktop is the cheapest way to get your hands on a new Mac and, while there may be some compromises to accommodate, it's arguably the most impressive way to experience the new M1 chipset so far.
