Shipping times for Apple’s Mac mini have slipped from 24 hours to 5-7 business days. The slide in shipping times comes amid rumors that Apple is preparing Haswell-based MacBook Pro and iMac models for release this fall.
The slip in shipping times currently appears exclusive to the Mac mini, in multiple Apple Online Stores, as Apple’s other Macs are still showing the typical 24 hour times to ship.
While a slip in shipping times certainly doesn’t confirm that an update is on its way, the Mac mini was last updated in October of 2012, and does not currently contain the Haswell chipset. The computer last saw a major redesign in mid-2010.
