Anatel homologates the Mac mini from the Developer Transition Kit for the Apple Silicon, strangely [atualizado]

A month ago, we published an article here on the website detailing the Developer Transition Kit (DTK) launched by Apple for developers interested in working ahead of time to transition their apps to the Apple Silicon.

It is a Mac mini equipped with the iPad Pro’s A12Z Bionic chip, 16GB of RAM, 512GB SSD, running macOS Big Sur and Xcode 12, and which costs US $ 500 for developers – with the detail that the hardware will have to be returned to Apple at the end of the program.

Unfortunately, as we noted earlier, the Brazil is not among the 32 countries that are eligible to apply for the DTK – Portugal yes, it’s worth noting.

The strange thing is that, today, the National Telecommunications Agency (Anatel) published the approval of a product identified by the code A2330, which we know to be exactly that Mac mini (and not a new iMac, as previously speculated). To date, there is no document or certificate available for download.

So, it could be that Apple was hoping to get this approval to release the DTK to Brazilian developers. The Universal App Quick Start Program page on the Apple Developer portal has not yet been updated, but we will obviously keep an eye out.

Anyone interested there?
