Apple We just sent out invitations for the newest and final big event of 2020. The "One More Thing" event, which takes place on November 10th at 10am, will almost certainly focus on the long-awaited arrival of Apple silicon Macs. The big event will only be online, of course – it seems like all the big tech shows will be happening for the foreseeable future.
The move to virtual events during the COVID-19 shutdown has allowed companies to disrupt these spotlight events more than in years past. After all, it's much smaller to ask reporters and analysts to tune in to a livestream. As such, the company has benefited from this with three events in quick succession. The first focused on the new Apple Watch and iPads, the second on the iPhone, and now it seems inevitable that Apple will turn its attention to the Mac.
The show will likely see the long-awaited release date for macOS Big Sur, along with the unveiling of Macs based on the company's priority ARM-based processors. Back at WWDC in late June, the company took the unusual step of announcing the technology's arrival well before the launch date in order to get developers on the shift before it became available in retail stores. So far, however, technology has been the realm of development kits.
Recent rumors point to a new version of the MacBook Air set arriving in the fourth quarter of 2020. Revised versions of the MacBook Pro and iMac are also reportedly in the works.
