It has been a long time since we have heard any insider's info about the purported Apple Mac Mini 2014. Fans were somehow expecting an update about the smallest Mac desktop from last year's Apple media event but it passed without it being mentioned.
The following months, a Belgian website mentioned another launching date, which was February 2014, still no Mac Mini materialized.
Needless to mention, even those who were present at Apple's 2014 Worldwide Developers Conference weren't able to grasp news about the compact desktop device.
However, a recent report by KDramaStars rather came off strongly saying a "confirmed" November 20, 2014 launching date.
"Cyberland has reported that the much anticipated Mac Mini 2014 release date would be on November 20, 2014 as reportedly confirmed by Apple," they stated.
The rumor caused news websites like Latino Post to raise an eyebrow as Apple doesn't usually "confirm leads and rumors" when it comes to the release of its devices, including the Mac Mini.
Not that we actually believe it, perhaps the closest-to-truth information we can get is from Mac Rumors. While they don't really mention any dates, they somehow indicated the changes that fans could expect from the purported Mac Mini 2014.
As stated in their site, the device will be shipped with OS X Mavericks and will be powered by Iris-integrated Haswell graphics. The upcoming device is also said to see the implementation of the next-gen 802.11ac Wi-Fi which suggest that it will now have thrice the breakneck connectivity speed than its existing wireless networks.
IT Pro's speculations of the latest Mac OS features include HandOff, AirDrop, MailDrop, and Continuity.
The price for the 2.5GHz dual-core Intel i5 with 3MB L3 cache model will likely play around $599, while the 2.3GHz quad-core Intel i7 with 6MB L3 cache will cost $799.
