Overview

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

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 technologies and industry-leading power efficiency,1 M1 is not a next step for Mac — it’s another level entirely.

Max power, mini footprint.

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

Incredible chip in. Unbelievable graphics out.

The 8-core GPU in the M1 chip is the most advanced graphics processor we’ve ever built. Period. And it brings the world’s fastest integrated graphics in a personal computer to Mac mini,9 with a gigantic 6x increase in graphics performance. That’s an insane amount of power — all in an incredibly compact enclosure.

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.

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.

More power. Wakes faster.

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.

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.

Towering performance. Minus the tower.

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.17

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 SSD18 for all your photo and video libraries, files and apps. And with speeds up to 3.4GB/s,19 apps and files launch and load in an instant.

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-cm-square frame, you never know where you’ll find a Mac mini hard at work.

Home office

Mac mini turns any desk into a powerful workstation. Just add a keyboard, mouse or trackpad, and up to two displays.

Gaming

The discrete-class GPU performance of the M1 chip lets you play graphics-intensive games with fluid frame rates and higher fidelity.

Music creation

The 8-core CPU, superfast unified memory and ML accelerators in the M1 chip let you run more tracks, plug-ins and filters in Logic Pro than ever before on Mac mini.

Digital art and signage

From jaw-dropping performance art to giant, immersive digital billboards, Mac mini can drive some of the biggest and brightest digital displays with its incredible performance, versatile I/O and unrivalled power efficiency — all in an ultra-compact design.

Connect and conquer.

With two astoundingly 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. And now you can configure Mac mini with 10Gb Ethernet for up to 10 times the throughput of the previous generation.

Thunderbolt / USB 4

Transfer data at up to 40Gb/s.20 Charge and power external devices. Connect one external display up to 6K and a second with HDMI 2.0 up to 4K.

Wi-Fi 6

Another first for Mac mini, Wi-Fi 6 delivers better all-round performance and up to 1.2Gb/s of throughput — for lightning-fast file transfers or backing up to Time Machine.
