Apple Announces November 10 Event, Apple Silicon Macs Expected to Debut

Apple today announced a third fall 2020 event, which is set to be held on Tuesday, November 10 at 10:00 a.m. on the Apple Park campus in Cupertino, California. As with the September and October events that saw the debut of new Apple Watches, iPhones, and other products, the November event will be digital only, with Apple likely providing pre-taped segments for each new product that will be announced.

Apple has already announced a new fourth-generation iPad Air, eighth-generation iPad, Apple Watch Series 6, and iPhone 12 lineup, the November event is expected to be a Mac-centric event with Apple introducing the first Apple Silicon Mac. We've got a quick overview of what to expect below.

Apple Silicon Mac

Apple has promised the first ‌Apple Silicon‌ Mac with an Arm-based chip is coming before the end of 2020, and it looks like the November event will be all about ‌Apple Silicon‌ Macs.

applesiliconbenefits
Apple first announced its work on ‌Apple Silicon‌ chips back in June, and we've heard little since then. ‌Apple Silicon‌ chips are similar to the A-series chips used in Apple's iPhones and iPads, with the chips designed in-house by Apple and manufactured by TSMC.

‌Apple Silicon‌ chips will bring improved performance and more efficient Macs that have a deeper integration between hardware and software, allowing for things like universal apps that run on all Apple devices.

There's no clear word yet on which Mac will be the first to get an ‌Apple Silicon‌ chip, but rumors suggest Apple is working on a new MacBook Air or a revived 12-inch MacBook, so the lower-cost MacBook line could see an update first. There are also rumors of a new 14-inch MacBook and a 24-inch iMac, so these are possible candidates as well.

We could get just a single Mac or multiple Macs could be refreshed with ‌Apple Silicon‌ at the same time.

Other Possibilities

This event will likely be held primarily to introduce the first ‌Apple Silicon‌ Mac (or Macs), but there are still some other products that are on the horizon that could see a launch at the November event.

AirPods Studio

Apple is developing high-end over-ear headphones that are a part of the AirPods family, offering an over-ear alternative to the AirPods and the AirPods Pro. Rumors suggest the AirPods Studio will cost $349 and will offer Active Noise Cancellation and a retro-style design.

Rumors initially suggested AirPods Studio would launch before the end of the year, but Bloomberg recently said there have been development issues, so it's now unclear if we're still on track to get them in 2020.

AirTags

AirTags are Apple's long-rumored Bluetooth trackers that can attach to items like wallets and keys, letting them be tracked right in the Find My app alongside iPhones, iPads, and Macs.

We've been expecting ‌AirTags‌ for quite some time now and we could finally see them in November, but there's also a chance that Apple is holding off until next year.

Event Coverage

Apple plans to stream the Mac event live on its Events website, on YouTube, and on the Apple TV app when it kicks off at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time. For those unable to watch, MacRumors will be providing full event coverage both on MacRumors.com and through the MacRumorsLive Twitter account.

AR Event Accompaniment

As with Apple's prior two events, Apple has created an augmented reality teaser for the Apple event, which can be viewed by visiting the event page on an iOS device. This month's event features a black Apple logo that opens and closes like a MacBook with a glowing rainbow background.

The color of the invite matches the MacOS Big Sur wallpaper. Defiantly a mac event. macOS Big Sur release is delayed for this.
