Apple Updates Mac Mini With Double the Storage

Posted on March 18, 2020 by Mehedi Hassan in Apple, Mobile, Mac and macOS with 1 Comment

Apple is making a slew of announcements today. The company is finally adding full trackpad support to iPadOS, and it’s releasing a new iPad Pro to go along with that.

On the Mac side, the company launched a new MacBook Air that finally comes with a reliable design, double the performance, and double the storage.

But there is one more upgrade for Mac fans: a refreshed Mac Mini. Don’t get too excited, though. The update is very minor, and it’s so minor that Apple simply tucked it away under the MacBook Air press release.

Cupertino is releasing a new Mac Mini with double the storage, so you can get more storage at the same price. The $799 variant now comes with 256GB of SSD storage, while the $1,099 variant comes with 512GB of storage. That’s a pretty decent update, but it’s surprising to see Apple not upgrade anything else on the Mac Mini considering the fact that it still features 8th-gen Intel processors released in 2017.

    Sounds like supply chain optimization to me.
