Apple has announced a ‘One More Thing’ event for November 10, for the company’s first ARM-based Macs that run with respect to Apple Silicon chips
The language here is especially notable: the ‘One More Thing’ phrase long been used by Apple – especially by Steve Jobs – in featured discussions for significant product announcements. The last time Apple utilized the expression was for the declaration of the iPhone X in 2017.
Mac declared designs to switch over from Intel processors to its own personal Apple Silicon CPUs back in June at WWDC, promising that the the first computers using the ARM-based chips would be out later in 2020. The organization said it’s rolling out the improvement for comparative reasons as its change to Intel chips in 2005: Apple says it can improve execution with lower power utilization from its own personal ARM-based efforts than it can with Intel’s processors.
While Apple is rumoured to start off with a MacBook of some sort for its initial ARM computer, the company’s ambitions are for its entire product lineup — from laptops all the way to desktops — to use Apple chips at some point down the line.
Along with new Macs, it’s also likely that the event will see the launch of macOS 11 Big Sur, which was also announced at WWDC and has been in beta for months.
