Tim Cook, answering an email:
I’m glad you love the Mac mini. We love it too. Our customers have found so many creative and interesting uses for the Mac mini. 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.
Plans can change, as evidenced by the current Mac Mini, which hasn’t been updated in 1099 days. I’ll believe it when I see it.
The iMac is currently the only model which has been getting regular updates. The MacBook Pro 13” should have had the new quad-core Kaby Lake Refresh chips announced already — the PC competition is already selling them — and we’re still waiting for the “can’t innovate my ass” Mac Pro.
Apple seems to have lost focus on the Mac over the last couple of years. I hope they get their shit together soon, before it’s too late.
P.S. Oh! Make the Touch Bar optional please!
