KEY POINTS

  • Consumers might soon see a new Mac mini and iMac, according to a recent leak
  • It is likely that the announcement for the new iMac and Mac mini could happen in Spring
  • Apple is also rumored to launch the iPhone SE 2 or iPhone 9 this month

Since Apple updated Mac Mini in 2014, its next update happened in 2018. Since then, we have not heard anything about the Apple product. But, if the latest leak is accurate, fans might be seeing a new Mac mini and iMac very soon.

Latest Leak

The latest information about the Mac mini and iMac comes from a reputable tipster CoinX. On Twitter, the tipster shares that Apple’s iMac and Mac mini are coming soon. The simple tweet was the source of whispers online among fans and enthusiasts who believe that the Cupertino company could be preparing for the release of these products.

There is nothing much on the tweet that we could infer from the tweet. But, if this is accurate, consumers might see an updated Mac mini and iMac loaded with more powerful processors and advanced specs. Apple introduced the refreshed version of iMac last year in iMac 5K. However, the iMac Pro has not been refreshed since it was introduced in the market in 2017.

Based on the release dates and updates, both the Mac mini and the iMac are already due for their refresh models. There are whispers online that Apple would hold an event in Spring. It is highly likely that it might introduce the new Mac mini and iMac on this upcoming event.

But, rumors suggest that Apple might hold the event online because of the COVID-19. Meanwhile, TFI Securities Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted earlier that Apple would release iMac Pro in the fourth quarter of this year. The Taiwan-based analyst also noted that the model might feature a mini-LED backlit display.

Apple On COVID-19

Despite issues with Apple’s supplier in China because of the recent COVID-19 outbreak, Apple CEO Tim Cook is optimistic that China would see it through. He also revealed in a recent interview that the company prioritizes the health and security of its employees. Several Apple employees in China recently shared the CareKit packages the company sent them.

The packages contain facemasks, infrared thermometers, foods, drinks, and iPads. During Apple’s recent shareholder meeting, Cook said that the employees are the energy of the company. And, its recent action reveals how Apple values its people.
