Apple is testing a new M3 Mac ahead of the launch of its next generation chip, according to a new report from Bloomberg's Mark Gurman. The new device is addition to several new Macs already in testing, including a new iMacs, as well as, entry-level and high-end MacBook Pros.

The Mac in testing includes eight CPU cores (made up of four efficiency cores and four performance cores), 10 graphics processor cores and 24 gigabytes of memory. This machine is running macOS Sonoma 14.1, the first point update to the upcoming new Mac software release. Given the M3 chip's specifications in this particular Mac, I believe it probably represents a next-generation Mac mini.

Here's the list of devices Gurman says are currently in testing:
● M3 13-inch MacBook Air (codenamed Mac 15,1 and J513/J613)
● M3 15-inch MacBook Air (codenamed Mac 15,2 and J515/J615)
● M3 13-inch MacBook Pro (codenamed Mac 15,3 and J504)
● M3 iMac (codenamed Mac 15,4, Mac 15,5, J433 and J434)
● M3 Pro and M3 Max 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros (codenamed Mac 15,7, Mac 15,8, J514 and J516)
● Possible M3 Mac mini (codenamed Mac 15,12)

Notably, Gurman also believes Apple is set to increase the core count on the M3 Pro to 12 CPU cores and 18 graphic cores. He also estimates that M3 Max could have 14 CPU cores and over 40 graphics cores.

Apple isn't expected to unveil any new Macs until the last quarter of 2023, but you can download the iClarified app or follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and RSS for further updates.
