Apple updated the Mac mini to its inaugural in-house SoC last year, but it is not done with the compact PC. According to a new leak, Apple has finally overhauled the Mac mini's design, which features plenty of ports, a flatter chassis and a new M1X or M2 SoC.

Last week, Luke Miani revealed details about the next Mac mini, initially discussed by Mark Gurman. Now, Jon Prosser and Ian Zelbo have published renders for the device, shown above and below. As Miani claimed, Prosser and Zelbo's renders show a Mac mini with a flat chassis, and one that harks to models sold before 2010.

Prosser has only published renders for a silver model, so far. However, he insists that Apple plans to release the next Mac mini in multiple colours. The Mac mini is believed to feature more ports than the new iMac too, including two USB Type-A ports, a Gigabit Ethernet connection and a full-sized HDMI port.

The Mac mini is expected to feature the same SoCs as the one that plans to include in the MacBook Pro 14 and MacBook Pro 16, currently referred to as the M1X or M2. As we have previously reported, these SoCs will contain 10 CPU cores and up to 32 GPU cores, a huge uplift on the current Apple M1.
