In the latest entry of his Power On newsletter, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman says an upcoming revamp of the Mac mini will have an updated design and more ports than the current model.
He says it will be powered by an M1X processor and sport a new external chassis with a “plexiglass-like” reflection surface on top of an aluminum enclosure. Gurman adds that the updated Mac mini should pack four USB4 / Thunderbolt 3 ports, two USB-A, Ethernet, and HDMI out. The current mini (pictured) has two Thunderbolt/USB ports, one USB-A port, one Ethernet port, and HDMI out. Gurman expects the next Mac mini to to arrive in the “next several months.”
