In case you thought Apple’s two big events this fall weren’t enough, it looks like the company has another big announcement planned – this time for the Mac – set for some mid-November.
The latest information came from Jon Prosser, which had a pretty strong track record for rumors earlier in the year but became more accurate recently with a number of correct predictions about Apple’s recent iPhone 12 event. According to Prosser, Apple will hold an event in November to announce new information about ARM-based Macs, with an expected date for the event currently in pencil for November 17th.
While Apple hosts three events at a time is quite unusual, after announcing it large transition to ARM-based processors for the entire Mac line back at WWDC 2020 and promising to reveal at least one new Mac based ARM before the end of the year, many assume that a specific Mac-specific for some fall / winter hours is a final conclusion.
While it’s hard to say exactly what Apple will announce, I suspect the first Mac featuring one of Apple’s custom-designed ARM chips will be a thin and lightweight laptop similar to the MacBook Air or MacBook Pro 13 -even I would not be surprised to see a new Mac Mini or iMac with an ARM-based chip also announced. However, do not expect a complete top overhaul of Apple’s entire computing line to take place immediately, as Apple has already said that its transition will take place over the next two years.
Aside from the new Macs, it’s possible Apple’s November event could shed some light on Apple AirTags, where many are expected to be announced sometime this year. However, for anyone hoping to find news about AirPods Studio — which is said to be an over-ear cancellation of noise headphones— Prosser claims the release for those was pushed a few hours next spring.
So for all those who have not yet met Apple’s announcements, stay tuned for more information on new Macs coming in November.
