Apple's latest and most probably the last event of the year is scheduled for 10th November

Apple, the US-based iPhone maker, has announced that it will host another event on November 10.

The latest upcoming Apple event called ‘One More Thing’ will be the third and last virtual event to be hosted by the technology giant this year.

Since the latest edition of the iPad, the Apple Watch and the Apple iPhone have already been released by Apple, Macs are expected to steal the show this time. To be more specific, at the November event, Apple is expected to announce the first ARM-based Macs that run on Apple Silicon chips rather than Intel processors.

In June, at the WWDC meeting, Apple Silicon was announced. It was promised at the time that the first Apple Silicon Mac will be unveiled sometime this year and the tech giant seems to be ready to keep its word.

The company claims it is making the shift to its own chip for reasons similar as when it switched to Intel Chips in 2005. Apple says it can get better performance from its own chips with lower power consumption than it can with Intel processors.

One More Thing

Apple uses the trademark expression ‘One More Thing’ for events that include important product announcements. The last time Apple used the phrase was for the announcement of the iPhone X in 2017.The ‘One More Thing’ 2020 will be live-streamed on the website of Apple, the Apple TV app and probably on YouTube as well.

The company has already started sending out invites for the virtual event, but has not revealed what this event may be about. But the majority anticipate that the launch event will see the company announce a new Mac with Apple Silicon within it.

The launch news comes after an earlier report suggested that Apple is working on a 13-inch MacBook Air, a 13-inch MacBook Pro, and a 16-inch Apple silicon chips-equipped MacBook Pro.

The move was not entirely unexpected as the company’s CEO Tim Cook teased that the company was not finished with launches this year during last week’s conference call for Apple’s fourth-quarter results.

It is noteworthy that the early November event is also the last opportunity for Apple to announce products ahead of the holiday season. As such, it seems likely that some other long-rumored products, like its Tile-like AirTags tracking device and AirPods Studio over-ear headphones, could also be arriving.
