A reference to an unannounced new Mac mini has been found, supporting rumors that a revised model will be launched soon.

The Mac mini was one of the first machines to get Apple Silicon, and more recently it was rumored to be one of the first to get a second-generation M2 version.

Previous reports have claimed that a new Mac mini will feature Apple’s next-generation Silicon processors. A model code-named J473 would be based on the expected “M2” processor, and the more powerful model, code-named J474, would feature the “M2 Pro”.

The entry-level chip “M2” is said to be based on Apple’s A15 processor. It will have the same eight-core CPU as the current M1 Mac mini, but the GPU will be increased to 10 cores.

Reports also claim that the “M2 Pro” will have a 12-core CPU, with four efficiency cores and eight performance cores.

A new Mac mini was rumored to launch in the spring of 2022, and more recently it was believed to be unveiled at WWDC on June 6.

WWDC is very specifically and purposefully a software event, as is always noted in hindsight when no hardware is involved. However, for 2022, hardware may be more likely than usual as it marks the end of Apple’s self-imposed two-year transition to Apple Silicon.
