Today are fulfilled four years since the last Mac mini update. Therefore, it maintains it as the second Mac with the longest time without updating, after the Mac Pro. Both models agree that Apple's top managers, led by Phil Schiller, assured that they were within Apple's programming.
To tell the truth, it is not a model forgotten by Apple, as it can be purchased on its website. In addition, it is the main Mac for many users, ensuring that it covers all their needs. We'll see if Apple decides to renew it in the coming weeks.

They have come to this RAM by buying the model directly from Apple, as this model has the RAM soldered to the motherboard, unlike previous models, where many users have been able to expand the RAM. The rest of the features of the current Mac mini are: up to 1 TB of storage, both in Fusion Drive or SSD disks and Intel HD 5000 graphics. This graphics is the main reason why many users consider changing Mac. The price starts at € 499 in the Apple store.
With the possible presentation of Apple hardware in the coming days, sources that are right with Apple's movements, such as Ming-Chi Kuo and especially Mark Gurman, They have advanced a renovation of the Mac mini. In fact, the latter announces a renewal of the Mac mini focused on the professional line. In several forums and podcasts, in recent months, the possibility of seeing a Mac mini with average user features has been discussed, without focusing on the user with greater requirements. Mark Gurman is a reliable source to the point of giving it a lot of credibility.
We will see in the coming days the evolution of events in this regard and if Apple calls a presentation, or rather closes the Apple Store to put this long-awaited update on sale.
