According to Apple homepage

the headphone output is analog and optical at the same time. So it seem to be unchanged to the previous model.

Apple has slowly moved away from the combined optical/analog audio in/out on many of their laptops so I wouldn't be surprised they will do it here as well.

Optical audio connections have not gain market traction as most people just don't take advantage to the better fidelity they offer.

Now that Apple has posted the product sheet it does look good! They are still offering a dual Analog/Digital Audio line out/headphone minijack & Audio line in minijack


Thanks Patrick!

The backside of the Mini remains almost identical to the previous iteration. The only change is the omission of a FireWire port in favor of an extra Thunderbolt 2 port.
