Noting it's been three years this week since the Mac mini received an update, MacRumors has some news from a reader. The question of Mac mini upgrades was sent to CEO Tim Cook and he responded that there is a "plan for the Mac mini to be an important part of our product line going forward."
From that, it sounds like there will at least be some kind of update, but probably not anytime soon. Apple already pre-announced a new iMac Pro computer and redesigned Mac Pro. This is in addition to smaller updates to its more popular Mac products. It would seem a good guess nothing will be happening for the Mac mini until next year.
