Apple today confirmed it will hold one last virtual event in 2020. The event, which takes place on Tuesday, November 10, is expected to see the company unveil a lineup of Mac products equipped with Apple Silicon. While the iPhone 12 will likely grab mainstream headlines over the holiday season, Apple fans have been eagerly anticipating the Mac’s transition away from Intel processors. Apple previously teased it would introduce ARM-based Macs that run on Apple Silicon chips at WWDC. We’ve seen what Apple Silicon can do in the iPhone and iPad, and now it’s time to see how its engineering holds up on the desktop.
This is Apple’s third event in as many months. The company previously announced the Apple Watch Series 6 in September alongside the new iPad Air, followed by the introduction of the iPhone 12 lineup in October. Notably, Apple is calling out its famed “One More Thing” tagline, which has long been used by the company during major events. Clearly, the company is excited about what it’s going to unveil.
Apple is rumored to launch a new 13-inch MacBook Pro running its own silicon. There have also been rumors the company could bring back the MacBook. Back over the summer when Apple confirmed it would release ARM-based Macs this year, the company offered developers a custom Mac mini with an A12Z chip, allowing them to prepare their apps for the transition.
The event could also see Apple unveil new over-ear headphones called AirPods Studio, along with AirTag item trackers. Similar to Apple’s previous two events, this one will be streamed online, so anyone can easily tune in. Apple has taken its events virtual this year following the spread of COVID-19.
