Noted Apple leaker Jon Prosser reports that the Cupertino, Calif. -based company is planning the event for November 17, where it will reveal its first Mac computers designed with its new Apple-designed main processors based on the chips it uses in its iPhones and iPads.
"To confirm, there IS a November ARM Mac event", Prosser said in a tweet. We have heard the news that the company would be announcing its first set of MacBooks this year and a lot of signs pointed it towards a November launch. It held an all-digital WWDC, and digital events in both September and October, all with the incredibly high production values you'd expect from an Apple launch.
From this year onwards, Apple has declared to stop using Intel chips to accommodate its own custom-built Apple silicone processors in Macs. Apple software chief Craig Federighi said in June that for those offerings, "most apps will just work, with no changes from the developer" on the new Macs.
The ARM motion will be one of the largest modifications the Mac lineup will glimpse since it transitioned to Intel chips in the previous decade.
Additionally, the U.S.is about to enter the holiday season, which at the time of the rumored Apple Event, the country would be in full swing for the season. It makes sense that Apple is putting off its additional products for another presentation to focus exclusively on phones in October and its computing solutions in November. Apple could also reserve the new chips for its high-end PCs initially while using Intel power for the affordable models. However, we haven't received any update on the apple chips after the Company announced the news. We'll keep you posted.
