  Report: The Mac mini is finally getting an update after nearly 4 years The Mac mini is the cheapest Mac, but it’s also the one Apple seems to care the least about. Case in point: the last time it got an update was October 16 of 2014. There hasn’t been so much as a spec bump in the four years since.That’s finally about to change according to Ming Chi Kuo, one of the most reliable sources for Apple rumors. He claims the mini is slated to receive an update this fall.Unfortunately, he doesn’t provide much in the way of specifics. A processor upgrade is expected, but the report doesn’t say if the mini will receive a new chassis, ports, or any design update otherwise.

According to Bloomberg, Zhang admitted that he downloaded Apple's driverless car files, so he could still have access to them even if he's not with the company anymore. Reuters also said that he admitted to taking hardware from the lab, because he wanted a new position within Apple and thought it could help him.

Zhang designed and tested circuit boards for analyzing sensor data at Apple and was privy to top secret information about its driverless car development. He informed the company that he was permanently moving back to China to work for local EV startup Xiaopeng Motors after he got back from his paternity leave. Apple officials were quick to inform authorities of possible theft, because Zhang's supervisor noticed an increase in his network activities and discovered that he visited its HQ in the middle of his paternity leave when he was supposed to be in China.

Apple is already testing a few dozen driverless vehicles, but it hasn't revealed much about its efforts and technology yet.

Zhang was arrested on July 7th after going through security at San Jose International Airport to board a last-minute flight to China.

A spokesperson said in a statement: "Apple takes confidentiality and the protection of our intellectual property very seriously.
