According to the latest news, Apple has announced a “One More Thing” event on 10th November. Speculation suggests that in this event, the company will be unveiling its first ARM-based Macs that run on Apple Silicon chips instead of the Intel processors the company has used since 2005.
The phrase “One More Thing” is noteworthy. It is a phrase that has been used by Apple’s former CEO Steve Jobs in keynotes for significant product announcements. Back in 2017, the company used the phrase for the last time while announcing for iPhone X.
Just a few weeks ago, in its augmented reality teaser, Apple recently included event invitations showing an animated Apple logo rising up towards the viewer just like it would when opening the lid of one of the company’s laptops.
This is super cool. The Apple event logo in AR resembles opening and closing a MacBook.

Back in June at WWDC, Apple announced that it is planning to switch over from Intel processors to its own Apple Silicon CPUs. The company also promised that the first computers using the ARM-based chip would be out later in 2020.
Even in 20005, the company said it is making the change for similar reasons while switching to Intel chips. Now, the company is saying that it can get better performance with lower power consumption from its own ARM-based efforts than it can with Intel’s processors.
It is being rumored that Apple will start off its ARM processors with some MacBook. Note that irrespective of where it starts, the company’s ambition is for its entire product lineup starting from laptops to desktops.
As per some rumors, along with new Macs, Apple might also launch macOS 11 Big Sur which was announced at WWDC. Do share your thoughts in the comment section below!
