We’re sure that some were hoping that we would see an update to the Mac mini at Apple’s March 8 event, but instead Apple gave us the Mac Studio which is actually pretty cool. Now, we have heard that a Mac mini refresh is still in the works and it could come with an M2 chipset, but it seems we might have to wait until 2023.
This is according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who tweeted that the Mac mini refresh is now expected to arrive in 2023. This is an update to Kuo’s previous claims that suggested some of Apple’s other rumored computers, like the Mac Pro, have also been pushed to a 2023 launch.

In a way, this makes some of the other rumors understandable. Kuo had previously claimed that Apple is expected to refresh the MacBook Air and that it could come with an M1 chipset, The Mac mini, on the other hand, has been rumored to be powered by the M2, so if it is delayed to 2023, it could suggest that the M2 might only be launching then, which is why the 2022 MacBook Air refresh could still use the M1.
Either way, there are admittedly quite a bit of conflicting rumors going around at this point in time so it’s probably best to just take it all with a grain of salt until we have additional details about them.
