The iPhone 12 event may still be fresh in our memories, but Apple has not ended up hosting product launches. It looks like another Apple event is on the horizon for November, and this time, instead of new smartwatches or phones, the focus seems to be on MacBooks are powered by chips developed by Apple.
According to the leaker Jon Prosser, there is a special event scheduled for November, where Apple will detail the upcoming Apple Silicon mac, known as “ARM Macs.” Mark your calendars for November 17, with Apple officially setting a date a week in advance.
“To confirm, there is an event on the November ARM Mac,”; Prosser tweeted. “I hear November 17th.” A subsequent tweets says invitations will be released on November 10.

Prosser did not offer any further details beyond the leak, nor was it positive what kind of Mac model would end up being the first in line to get the Apple Silicon makeover. But all the signs point to Apple laptops being the first to benefit from Apple chips.
Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted that the 13.3-inch MacBook Pro and MacBook Air would launch ARM chips during the fourth quarter of 2020. Rumors in the past also indicated that the 12-inch MacBook could return as well.
Dati, Bloomberg Apple reportedly planned to unveil the first-ever Apple silicon Mac in addition to “other products” during a special event in November. This most likely refers to further updates to Mac products that continue to use Intel-based chips. Apple has indicated in the past that it will continue to use Intel processors in addition to ARM chips of its own making as it works to complete the transition to ARM.
Prosser does not have an infallible tack record in terms of release, but given that his claims tend to line up with what other rumors have indicated in the past, at least believe that a potential events may be on track in November. And he was right in predicting that rumored products like Apple AirTags and AirPods Studio will not be part of the launch of the iPhone 12 this week.
At that event, Apple presented the new one iPhone 12 line as well as HomePod mini speaker. It makes sense that Apple would remove additional products for various presentations just to keep the focus on phones in October and its computing solutions in November. At this point, we are just waiting for the shoe to drop from Apple once and for all.
