“Supply of Apple’s existing Mac mini lineup has become increasingly constrained over the past two weeks as the company prepares to introduce refreshed models that may serve as a harbinger for some new I/O technology on the Mac,” Kasper Jade reports for AppleInsider.
“The shortage has been verified four times over by AppleInsider, which has received numerous reports that suggest the constraints are indicative of new models on the horizon, rather than intermittent delays resulting from the onset of the back-to-school buying season, which sometimes sees Apple curb the flow of Macs to its distribution channels in favor of filling large orders to universities,” Jade reports. “‘Every time this has happened in years past, it means that the item we ordered would be revised,’ one buyer for a higher-ed institution told AppleInsider.”
Jade reports, “In March, AppleInsider exclusively reported that next-generation Mac minis making there way through the Cupertino-based company’s verification tests were seen with an HDMI port in place of the existing model’s DVI port.”
