The Apple Mac mini may not be dead after all

Is Apple done with Mac mini

A new email response apparently from Apple CEO Tim Cook to a customer asking about the Mac mini's future does little to ease that concern too.

On the desktop side, development moves at a much slower pace, and as such, it has a few Apple customers questioning whether the Mac mini is now a dead product line? "Are we going to see anything in the pipeline anytime soon?" asked the Apple fan.

Cook's response was: "I'm glad you love Mac mini".

In the bowlers' list, Jasprit Bumrah and Axar Patel are the two Indians who figure in top-10. AB de Villiers has 879 points at the top, with captain Kohli placed second at 877 points.

So the Mac mini will be refreshed, but it seems likely that won't happen until after the new Mac Pro launches. In that time frame, Apple has gone through three full iPhone release cycles while also managing to refresh and update all of the other Mac models in its product lineup.

It could be argued that the Mac Mini is a pretty niche product that does not really warrant a lot of attention from Apple, particularly when it has a capable line up of MacBooks and all-in-one iMac machines to attract macOS fans. To put this in perspective, Intel announced 8th generation processors about a month back and the Mac Mini runs on more than 3 years according to ArsTechnica.

Apple has done very well with its Mac computers in recent years, even if it tends to focus more on the MacBook line often to the detriment of its desktop products.

United States company says it's close to agreeing deal to restart MH370 search
Ocean Infinity was reported to be favoured after making a "no find, no fee" offer to search for the Malaysia Airlines plane. MH370 disappeared over the southern Indian Ocean in March 2014 while flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.

The email reinforces a statement made by Phil Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of worldwide marketing, who said in April that "the Mac mini is an important product in our lineup", the report adds.

The Mac Mini packs 4th generation Intel processors alongside 4 GB of RAM and Intel HD 5000 integrated graphics.

To be fair, Cook didn't say an update is on the way, but we can't imagine Apple will continue selling an outdated machine for another three more years.
