Apple could launch Mac Mini in 2023 with new chip and old design

It seems that the plans Apple launching a new Mac Mini with an even more compact design may have been left for later. According to information from reliable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the new generation of computers may not arrive until next year with the same body as the current model.

Over the weekend, Kuo said in his Twitter who thinks the new 2023 Mac Mini should keep the same design and form factor as the current generation.

This does not mean that the rumors related to the more compact design are false, but rather that Apple would have chosen to continue with practically the same chassis used for almost a decade.
