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.

The news not entirely surprising given how long its been – especially considering Apple’s renewed focus on desktops – but it’s encouraging nonetheless. The Mac mini has long been the most accessible Mac – it starts at $499 – but its hardware is so ancient that buying one is a terrible deal unless you really need a desktop Mac on the cheap.

But it’s not just the Mac mini. In fact, Kuo expects Apple to provide updates around all of its product categories this fall. and we’ve already written extensively about the rumored iPhones, iPads, and MacBooks. One new tidbit on the laptops is that Kuo believes there will be a new, low cost MacBook in addition to spec bumps for the rest of them.

The report also suggests Apple is working on two new Apple Watch models this year, with bigger displays and improved heart rate detection. It’s not clear if the watches themselves will be bigger or if Apple is just shrinking the bezels, though I’m hoping for the latter. Lastly, the report claims the iMac will get a spec bump too.

Now if Apple would only release that modular Mac Pro…

You can now use Alexa to control your DirecTV set-top box .
Amazon first announced an update to its Alexa Video Skill API back in March that would make it easier for set-top box makers to add DVR and playback controls via voice, but it’s taken a little while for its initial partners to enable the feature. TiVo added it to select devices back in May, and now DirecTV is joining the club with an announcement today that its Genie HR44 DVR, among other DirecTV set-top boxes, finally supports Alexa. With the update, you should be able to use your voice to ask an Alexa-enabled Echo device to record TV shows, change channels, and perform other playback functions for your DirecTV set-top box.
