Mac mini

New guts.
More glory.

The Apple M1 chip takes our most versatile, do-it-all desktop into another dimension. With up to 3× faster CPU performance. Up to 6× faster graphics. And our most advanced Neural Engine for up to 15× faster machine learning. Get ready to work, play and create on Mac mini with speed and power beyond anything you ever imagined.

 
Supercharged by the Apple M1 chip
 

Small chip. Giant leap.

It’s here. Our first chip designed specifically for Mac. Packed with an astonishing 16 billion transistors, the Apple M1 system on a chip (SoC) integrates the CPU, GPU, Neural Engine, I/O and so much more onto a single tiny chip. With incredible performance, custom-engineered technologies and industry-leading power efficiency,1 M1 is not a next step for Mac — it’s another level entirely.

 

CPU

8-core CPU Max power, mini footprint.

M1 packs astonishing speed and power into Mac mini. The 8-core CPU delivers up to 3× faster processing performance than the previous generation2 — all while keeping its iconic 19.7-centimetre-square design.

 
GPU
Incredible chip in. Unbelievable graphics out.

The 8-core GPU in the M1 chip is the most advanced graphics processor we’ve ever built. And it brings the world’s fastest integrated graphics in a personal computer to Mac mini, with a gigantic 6× increase in graphics performance. That’s an insane amount of power — all in an incredibly compact enclosure.

8-coreGPU
Up to6×faster graphics performance
 
 
Machine learning

16-core Neural Engine. It’s the brains of the operation. Machine learning (ML) brings task-smashing speed and automation to video analysis, voice recognition, image processing and more. And the M1 chip brings a 16-core Neural Engine and full stack of ML technologies, transforming Mac mini into an ML powerhouse.

16-coreNeural Engine

Up to15×faster ML performance
 
 
macOS Big Sur

The power of macOS Big Sur on M1.

Developed to unlock the potential of the M1 chip, macOS Big Sur transforms Mac with major performance benefits and so much more. Powerful updates for apps. A beautiful new design. Industry-leading privacy features and best-in-class security. It’s our most powerful software ever — running on our most advanced hardware yet.

 

Speed and responsiveness

The M1 chip and macOS Big Sur work together to make the entire system snappier. Mac mini wakes almost instantly from sleep. Everyday things like flipping through photos and browsing Safari are faster. And your hardest-working apps all have access to the power they need.

More power.Wakes faster.

 

Biggest collection of apps ever

Run powerful apps built for M1. All your existing apps work thanks to Rosetta 2. And for the first time, you can use your favourite iPhone and iPad apps directly on macOS Big Sur. Altogether you’ll have access to the biggest collection of apps ever for Mac.

 
Compact design

The integration of technologies on the M1 chip allows Mac mini to blow away computers many times its size — taking on intensive tasks while consuming up to 60 per cent less energy than the previous generation.

Towering performance. Minus the tower.

 
 
Unified memory
 
One RAM to rule them all. The M1 chip brings up to 16GB of superfast unified memory. This single pool of high-bandwidth, low-latency memory allows apps to share data between the CPU, GPU and Neural Engine efficiently — so everything you do is fast and fluid.
SSD storage

Mac mini comes with all-flash storage — up to a whopping 2TB SSD for all your photo and video libraries, files and apps. And with speeds up to 3.4GB/s, apps and files launch and load in an instant.

 
Security

Keep it secure.
Keep it safe.

 

Versatility

Fits in. Rocks out.

With its compact size, incredible performance and wide array of ports, Mac mini is perfect for a surprising range of uses. And with the powerful M1 chip unleashed within its 19.7-centimetre-square frame, you never know where you’ll find a Mac mini hard at work.

Connections and expansion

Connect and conquer.

With two screaming-fast Thunderbolt/USB 4 ports, two USB‑A ports, HDMI 2.0, Wi-Fi 6 and Gigabit Ethernet, Mac mini is up for anything and everything.
