The iPhone 12 event may still be fresh in our memories, but Apple has not finished launching hosting products. Apple’s next event seems to be on the horizon in November, and this time, instead of new smartwatches or phones, the focus seems to be on MacBooks powered by Apple-built chips.
According to Leaker John Prosser, there is a special event scheduled for November, during which Apple will present in detail its upcoming Apple Silicon macs, known as “ARM Macs”. Mark your calendars for November 17, with Apple officially setting the date a week ahead of time.
“To confirm, there is a November ARM Mac event,”
To confirm, there is an event for the November ARM Mac. I’m listening on November 17. 🗓 October 16, 2020
Prosser did not offer any additional features after the expiration, nor did it specify which Mac model would be the first in line to become Apple Silicon. But all indications are that Apple laptops were the first to take advantage of Apple’s chips.
Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicts that the 13.3-inch MacBook Pro and MacBook Air will debut with ARM chips in the fourth quarter of 2020. Rumors have also hinted in the past that the 12-inch MacBook may also return.
Previously, Bloomberg announced that Apple plans to unveil its first Apple silicone Mac in addition to “other products” during a special event in November. These probably relate to additional updates to Mac products that continue to use Intel-based chips. In the past, Apple has indicated that it will continue to use Intel processors in addition to home-made ARM chips as it works to complete the transition to ARM.
Prosser has no impeccable experience with leaks, but given that his allegations tend to coincide with what other rumors have indicated in the past, it is at least plausible that a potential event could be in progress in November . And he correctly predicts that rumors of products like Apple AirTags and AirPods Studio will not be part of the launch of the iPhone 12 this week.
At this event, Apple introduced a completely new iPhone 12 line as well Mini HomePod speaker. It makes sense for Apple to postpone its additional products for a different presentation in order to keep its focus only on phones in October and computing solutions in November. At this point, we’re just waiting for the shoe to fall off Apple once and for all.
