However, against the popular belief the company is not done with it, as the CEO of Apple, Tim Cook, confirmed recently in reply to a fan email. Fans of the mini-computer, Apple are asking the question for years since it's been three years, there has been no hardware upgrade.

Now, it's not clear when Apple would introduce a new Mac Mini.

If you hadn't noticed, Apple is increasingly focusing on mobile devices in recent years.

As reported by MacRumors, a Mac user named Krar emailed Tim Cook to get an update on the Mac mini and he received a response.

Apple has released many, many, many products since the Mac Mini was last upgraded in 2014, and that's left the fans of the Mac Mini anxious that it's not long for this world.

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?

Tim Cook, however, remains mysterious: "this is not the time to give details, " he wrote. When we start hearing rumors about one, it will be a good indication that perhaps a new Mac mini is just around the corner.

'While it is not time to share any details, we do plan for Mac mini to be an important part of our product line going forward'.

The Mini happens to be the most affordable in Apple's desktop line-up of computers, one that is sold sans the desktop, keyboard or the mouse.

With Intel's 8th-generation processors starting to appear in notebooks and desktop-form chips, it would be seen as an ideal opportunity for Apple to release updated MacBook Pro models featuring these efficient processors. I wouldn't be surprised to be kept waiting until the second half of 2018 for fresh Mac mini news.
