Macs with Apple silicon are coming, and it looks like we’ll be able to (pre)order some of them later today.
Apple has taken its online store down ahead of its “One more thing” event, which kicks off at 10 a.m. PT Tuesday, Nov. 10. The online-only event will be streamed on Apple’s website as well as on YouTube.
Officially, we don’t know anything beyond the tagline. However, it’s very likely the company will announce the first Mac computers with Apple silicon.
During its 2020 Worldwide Developer Conference, Apple said it would gradually make the switch from Intel processors to ARM-based, Apple-branded chips in Mac computers. The company also said the first such Mac would come before the end of 2020.
The new chips should offer good performance with low energy expenditure. Also, with all Apple products sharing a common architecture, it should be easier for developers to write apps for Apple’s ecosystem of devices.
Unofficially, leaks and rumors claim Apple will launch two MacBook Pro models as well as a MacBook Air during the event. There are also whispers of a redesigned iMac and a new Mac Pro being in the works, but those are less likely to show up today.
