More Ethernet: New network options for iPad Pro, Mac mini and iMac
Apple is expanding its Ethernet support. The manufacturer has added new options for faster Ethernet connection to two product lines: The Mac mini with Apple's M1 chip, which was introduced in November, can now be ordered with an RJ-45 connection for 10 GBit Ethernet for an additional charge. The support of the faster standard enables connection speeds of 1 Gbit / s, 2.5 Gbit / s, 5 Gbit / s and 10 Gbit / s, as Apple explains.
10 Gigabit Ethernet for Mac mini and iPad Pro
The option for 10 Gigabit Ethernet costs 115 euros extra and can also be configured for the entry-level model. The M1-Mac mini supports 10/100 / 1000BASE-T Gigabit as standard, the 10-Gigabit option of the predecessor with Intel processor has not been available until now - much to the annoyance of some customers. There were already signs of support for 10 GBit Ethernet, because AWS is now able to book EC2 instances with macOS for the first time. Amazon also wants to use Mac minis with an M1 chip for this purpose.
The newly introduced iPad Pro 2021 also supports 10 Gigabit Ethernet via Thunderbolt for the first time, as Apple emphasized on Tuesday - a novelty for iOS devices. An adapter that uses the USB-C port is required for this, as the slim tablet does not have an RJ-45 port. The manufacturer OWC, for example, offers such a "10G Ethernet adapter" for Thunderbolt devices, the network adapter costs around 180 euros.
iMac hides RJ-45 in the power supply
In the new M1-iMac, Apple has removed the RJ-45 connection from the back, but not entirely deleted it: A Gigabit Ethernet port is still integrated in the now external power supply of the all-in-one Mac. This has the additional advantage that the additional network cable does not have to be pulled up to the desk. If you need 10 Gbit / s, you have to switch to one of the Thunderbolt adapters just mentioned.
If you want to buy an iMac, however, you should note that the power supply unit with integrated Ethernet port is missing in the entry-level model - this model costs an extra 30 US dollars, and there is no euro price yet. Alternatively, Gigabit Ethernet can also be retrofitted via a USB-C adapter for around 30 euros.
