Mac Mini 2014 release date set for Nov. 20 with killer features?

It has been reported that the Mac Mini 2014 release date will take place on Nov. 20, and it will pack a number of killer features.

Mac Mini is one of the Apple devices left to be upgraded by the company, and a lot of Apple fans are expecting that the upgrade will come before the year ends. The rumor mill started last February and it is said that there are very few updates regarding the desktop.

KDramaStars cited Cyberland and stated that the tech giant "confirmed" that this year's version of Mac Mini is bound to hit the market on Nov. 20. This raised eyebrows as Apple has not confirmed anything yet.

Rumors added that the Mac Mini 2014 will pack OS X Mavericks and will be powered by Iris-integrated Haswell graphics, an Intel i7 4790 processor paired with 16 GB of RAM. It is said that it will be supported by an Intel Graphics Card. Speculators are assuming that it will have the next-gen 802.11ac Wi-Fi for connectivity. Other features include HandOff, AirDrop, MailDrop, and Continuity.

According to unconfirmed reports, the price for the Mac Mini 2014 with 2.5GHz dual-core Intel i5 with 3MB L3 cache model will cost around $599, while the 2.3GHz quad-core Intel i7 with 6MB L3 cache model will cost $799.

Next in Apple's pipeline is the next generation of iPad Air and iPad Mini Retina. The tablets were supposedly headed to production last month in order to make it to its target release date in the fall. It has been reported that the display components will be finished this month, while the camera and sensors will begin next month.

Some reports deem that the upcoming iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3 will pack the same design and form factor of their predecessors. The two will also be equipped with the same screen display with the upgraded pixel resolution, will be powered by the upcoming A8 processor, and will run with the new iOS 8. The tablets will also feature the much awaited Touch ID fingerprint sensor, upgraded camera at the back, and a more efficient and longer battery life.  

It is said that iPad Air and iPad Mini 3 are set to arrive in October, which is the usual release date window of the company's tablet line. However, Apple has not revealed any official information about the iPad release date and features.
