Mark Gurman provided some details about unreleased Apple products in a new interview, suggesting a M1 Mac Pro isn't coming, and the Mac mini won't see a redesign.
Gurman normally reports for Bloomberg where he provides leaks and rumors from his insider sources. For example, he recently shared details about the rumored "Pro" Apple Watch Series 8 in his "Power On" newsletter.
The interview was hosted by YouTube channel Max Tech, where Gurman discussed some of the exaggerated controversies that the interviewers originally started surrounding the M2 MacBook Air. As the interview continued, Gurman shed some light on unreleased Apple products that won't be released.
"I don't think there will be a redesign to the Mac mini," said Gurman. "I actually don't know where the rumors of a redesign came from. I think those are also going to be spec bumps."
Rumors of a new Mac mini originated from the controversial Jon Prosser. His leak history was accurate for some time, but has come into question thanks to a few major misses like a flat-sided Apple Watch or an iPhone without a camera bump.
"They also had an M1 Mac Pro, ready to go months ago," continued Gurman. "But I guess they scrapped that to just wait for the M2 pro version."
Rumors had originally assumed the Mac Pro would be announced during WWDC with an M1 variant, perhaps higher than the M1 Ultra. That didn't pan out, and now, with the existence of the M2 processor, the Mac Pro may not arrive for a long time.
Gurman believes the Mac Pro with "M2 Extreme" could be announced by the end of 2022, but wouldn't be released until mid-2023 at the earliest. Apple could also announce new iPad Pros with M2 and more in the same time period.
