Apple on Tuesday launched all-new Mac mini models with the M2 and M2 Pro chips. Although there are no design changes on the new model, it is still the same as it was years ago. And, there’s word that the design of the Mac mini models may not be changing anytime soon.

Apart from this, there is also news about the upcoming chipsets from Apple, the M3 Pro and M2 Max. The 3nm chip-powered MacBook Pro(s) is tipped to go into mass production in the first half of 2024.

Don’t expect design changes on the Mac mini anytime soon

Right after Apple unveiled the new Mac mini on Tuesday, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo revealed some tidbits about its successor. According to Kuo, the Mac mini coming in 2024 is likely to have a similar design to the new 2023 model.

Kuo also shared some details about the upcoming M3 Pro and M3 Max chips. He revealed that the next MacBook Pro model, which will apparently feature the M3 Pro/M3 Max chips, will start mass production in the first half of 2024.

Both the rumored chipsets will be based on 3nm fabrication and built by TSMC’s N3P and N3S architectures.
