Apple could launch the refreshed version of its diminutive computer Mac mini at its expected October event, unidentified sources told MacRumors. The report also claims that the new Mac will also come with Apple’s latest operating system.
While we do not have the exact specifications just yet, it won’t be surprising to see the new Intel Core M processor inside the little computer. The new Core M processor is more power-efficient, powerful, and cooler (literally) than the previous generation Intel processors. The processor doesn’t require fans to keep its temperature controlled. Although at this point, odds are that the new computer will be powered by a relatively older Intel Broadwell chipset.
For a refresh, the 2012 model was powered by Intel’s Ivy Bridge processors. The device’s compactness and mobility was one of the reasons why the device turned out to be popular with servers. However, since then Apple hasn’t upgraded the device. The rumor mill has also been pretty quiet for the Mac Mini. In mid-2014, a support page on Apple’s website did accidentally mention of a new Mac Mini, but that was shortly pulled.
Apple is also expected to launch iPad Air 2, and rollout OS X Yosemite to the public at its October event.
