Apparently, at Apple’s next spring event, the new Mac Mini will be unveiled, which is more powerful than ever.
In parallel, Apple may be working on a new feature for AirPods Pro headphones that, with just one tap, makes them “transparent”.
New Mac Mini with M1 Pro and M1 Max chips
In 2020 Apple launched a new Mac Mini with the Apple Silicon M1 chip and now at the next event scheduled for this spring it is preparing to launch a new version of the equipment that will arrive more powerful than ever thanks to the integration of the M1. Pro and M1 Max chips.
The information comes through the filter @dylandkt who also advances that the Mac Mini could come with a new design. According to previously published information, the device may feature a slimmer body with a polycarbonate top, more ports on the back, and a magnetic power connection.
But the spring appointment of the Cupertino company promises to be, at this distance, one of the most significant of the year due to the number of novelties that it will bring to the market. At the same time, Apple is also expected to launch a new iPhone SE with support for 5G communications, a refreshed iPad Air, a 27-inch iMac, among other products.
It should be noted that for now these are the forecasts for new products. Problems in the component supply chain or in the production line may force the brand to postpone the official launch of some of the expected novelties.
AirPods Pro with automatic transparency mode
Other Apple-related news reports that the company has filed a patent application for a new way to automatically enable transparency mode on AirPods Pro earphones.
According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the model that is already equipped with this new feature may still reach users this year, around the third quarter.
The aforementioned transparency mode on the headset is a very useful feature, especially when it comes to security. All because this mode allows the user to hear the ambient noises around them. For example, hearing a car horn if the user is crossing a street.
Of course, this transparency mode is the antithesis of external noise cancellation. But since it is a feature that may (or may not) be activated by the user, at times when it is most convenient, the two technologies do not cancel each other out.
