On Tuesday, November 10 at 10 a.m. Pacific Time (1 p.m. Eastern Time), Apple will hold another live event — its third in as many months — to announce new products. This time, the company is expected to unveil the first Macs that will replace Intel processors with Apple Silicon, the company’s in-house designed ARM-based chips.
As with the previous two events, we’ll be live blogging the proceedings here. Just return to this page before the show starts to see all of Cupertino’s updates.
The previous two events included two new Apple Watch models, a new iPad and four new iPhones. But the tagline for this event is “one more thing,” suggesting that the focus will be particularly on Apple’s long-rumored, recently confirmed ARM transition.
We expect Apple to name the first Macs to get Apple Silicon chips and price and date the launch of those Macs. We also expect the company to spend quite a bit of time discussing what it sees as the benefits of its new Mac chips: likely performance, battery life, machine learning features, and the ability to run native software from the huge iOS and iPadOS app stores.
Apple already addressed the Mac developer community to some degree when it first made the formal Apple Silicon announcement at its annual developer conference in June, but we also expect the company to spend at least some time taking away of concerns and announcing further third party software support for the chips.
There are still many questions about Apple Silicon that have yet to be answered, so we hope for more clarity next week. We’ll see if we get it.
Check back here Tuesday just before 1pm EST for any updates, anyway.
