Mac Mini 2018 Update: Specs And Features That Fans Wanted To See Detailed
There are numerous rumors and speculations surrounding the Mac Mini 2018, but despite that Apple hasn’t confirmed those assumptions yet. With that being said, let’s now focus on the specs and features that the fans would want to see on the upcoming device from the Cupertino-based tech giant.
Mac Mini 2018 Specs and Features Requested By Fans
As of now, there are no concrete details about the lot Mac mini 2. But then, what is sure is that Apple’s fans wanted to see the device and here are the specs and features that they request.
New and Attractive Design
Of course with the nearly four years before an update in the Mac Mini line up, the fans are expecting to see the upcoming Mac Mini 2018 featuring a total design overhaul. Many are expecting it to be slimmer, smaller and quieter.
It can be recalled that in early 2017, there is a rumor suggesting that the high-end Mac Mini won’t be so mini anymore. This led people to assume that more powerful components will be incorporated to the Mac Mini 2018, necessitating more room for improved cooling. Nonetheless, this speculation is quite ambiguous, so it’s advised to be taken with a grain of salt at this point.
Another thing that the fans wanted to see in the upcoming Mac Mini 2 is upgraded components. The said advanced mechanism to be seen in the Mac Mini successor is hoped to be daunting so that it can compete with other small form PCs like the Asus VivoMini and Intel NUC. These devices have been upgraded to 7th- and 8th-generation Intel Core processors, correspondingly.
The upcoming Mac Mini 2018 surely needs a newer processor than the 4th-generation silicon that engineered the current model. It is hoped to be powered by 8th-generation Whiskey Lake that would make it open for possibilities of including 4K video, Thunderbolt 3, and DisplayPort 1.2. As for the RAM department, the previous Mac Mini arrived featuring 4GB; hopefully, the Mac Mini 2 will house an 8GB of RAM.
Mouse And Keyboard Included
In the current Mac Mini, the Magic Mouse 2 and Magic Keyboard aren’t included and these have to be purchased separately. That basically means that the customer has to pay additional bucks for the parts that are necessary to use it. The fans are hoping that with the release of the Mac Mini 2018, this will be changed.
It is also worth mentioning that recently, Apple filed a patent suggesting that the Cupertino-based company is interested in taking along spill-free and crumb-resistant keyboards to its MacBook line up. This guard structure technology is intended to “keep contaminants from getting into the innards of the machine.”This piece of technology would also be useful to the Mac Mini 2018 as well.
It will be really great of the Mac Mini 2 could also act as a substitute for the Apple TV. But then, for that to happen, it has to be a 4K capable machine. Luckily, as what was mentioned earlier, in case the new Mac Mini will feature recent Intel processors, then the integrated graphics must offer it sufficient graphical power to handle 4K.
The Mac Mini 2018 is expected to be seen on the September event of the Cupertino-based tech giant. But in case, it did not show up, tech enthusiasts predict that it will be launch in October.
These are that the Mac Mini 2018 specs and features requested by the fans. Are you an Apple fan? What do you expect in the upcoming Mac Mini? Please share your thoughts with us in the comment section below.
