Ming-Chi Kuo, a reputable industry analyst, has offered his forecasts for Apple’s forthcoming desktop products, stating that he expects the company to release a more potent Mac mini and new 27-inch external display this year, followed by new iterations of the iMac Pro and Mac Pro in 2023.
Kuo’s tweet comes ahead of Apple’s eagerly anticipated “Peek performance” special event on Tuesday, when it is anticipated that the maker of the iPhone will reveal a new Mac mini with an M1 Pro or M2 chip and (at least) give a sneak peek of its rumoured new external display. Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman suggested that the external display may be unveiled next week after being finished “months ago.”
It is anticipated that the new Mac mini will be completely redesigned. Last year, leaker Jon Prosser suggested that the new machine would have a “plexiglass-like” top and an aluminium enclosure, displaying concepts that were allegedly based on leaked schematics that provided a look at the new machine.
Kuo’s remarks come after a report on Friday claimed to have knowledge of a new “Apple Studio Display” with a 7K resolution, offering a higher resolution than Apple’s current Pro Display XDR. This report left it unclear as to whether the new product will replace Apple’s expensive Pro Display XDR or be a new addition to the company’s lineup of standalone displays.
