Apple announced last week that there will be a special event on November 10. The name of the meeting is “One more thing” or One more thing , in English and refers to the iconic phrase of Steve Jobs . It is not officially known what it will introduce, but analysts agree that it will unveil new Macs with its own custom CPUs based on the ARM architecture.
During the developer conference (WWDC) in June, the Cupertino giant said its Mac computers would stop using Intel processors to start incorporating their own, called Apple Silicon.
The new Macs to be introduced would be the first commercial computers with this technology. It should be remembered anyway that there is a Mac with an Apple Silicon processor, the Mac mini DTK, but that it was only created with the aim that computer developers can create apps compatible with the new architecture.
The Mac mini DTK integrates the A12Z chip, a variant of the A12, and features an 8-core GPU that is also found in the iPad Pro that were released in March this year.
Apple would present three models of Mac
This is not a commercial product and only those who are developers and meet certain requirements can access this device. But the products that Apple will apparently introduce tomorrow are three Macs that will go on sale to consumers.
Apple is believed to launch three new laptops: a 13-inch MacBook Air and two 13- and 16-inch MacBook Pro models , according to a report by Mark Gurman for Bloomberg . According to this report, the company is also working on a redesigned iMac , as well as a new Mac mini and a mid-size Mac Pro that will also incorporate new Apple chips.
The processors in the new laptops will be based on the A14 chip found in the iPhone 12 lineup and the new iPad Air.
Apple Silicons were designed to reduce energy consumption and improve battery life, while boosting equipment performance. It is estimated that thanks to this new component, laptops could weigh less than a kilo and be thinner than the previous generation.

Apple is also expected to report a release date for macOS Big Sur, the next macOS update that incorporates a dedicated control center for managing screen brightness, volume, and Wi-Fi, among other settings; as well as new icons for Apple applications, among other novelties.
Although it is estimated that it will be an event dedicated almost exclusively to Macs, it would not be surprising if the company made time for other announcements, such as AirTags, a device that would allow tracking objects through Apple's Find application.
In turn, it is estimated that Apple could finally unveil its new high-end headphones that have been talked about for a long time. These headphones are rumored to include sound cancellation, touch controls, a Siri connection, and interchangeable headbands.
