Apple may have accidentally leaked the new Mac mini | Digital Trends Spanish

The rumors do not stop about the possible launch of two Mac computers at the next Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC22). One of the surprises in store for June would be a new version of the Mac mini.

The information comes from developer Steve Troughton-Smith, who looked at the latest firmware for Apple’s Studio Display monitor. As he revealed, it contains a reference to an unreleased Mac, called Macmini10,1.

The latest Mac mini is the 2020 M1 model, so the name makes sense, he said. Digital Trends.

The rumor mill is a little unclear as to what new Macs are imminent; for what it’s worth, there is one concrete clue: the shipping Studio Display firmware references one unaccounted-for mystery machine — a new model generation of Mac mini (“Macmini10,1”). My guess: M2, not M1 Pro

Troughton-Smith speculated that the machine could be powered by Apple’s M2 processor instead of the M1 Pro. The firm, the site recalled, has not released a high-end version of the Mac mini with the Silicon chip. The M2 would be an entry level chip, while an M1 Pro is aimed more at professional level users.

Rumors suggest that the M2 chip will be similar to the M1, but will increase the number of GPU cores to 10. As for the CPU cores, the M2 would have eight, just like the M1.

Other rumors claim that Apple could launch an M2 Pro model, which would give users a more powerful Mac mini with Silicon. The chip would have a 12-core CPU: four high-efficiency and eight high-performance.

Apple is also likely to unveil a new MacBook Air at WWDC22, which is also rumored to be equipped with an M2 chip. We will have to wait until the event, which starts on June 6, 2022.
