Apple’s One More Thing Event: What to expect and How to watch?

Apple is expected to launch a new silicon chipset powered MacBook at it's November 10 event. Apple announced its plans to transition to its in-house chips over Intel processors at WWDC 2020 earlier this year. However, the company is yet to showcase the new hardware that features its native chip.

Tonight, Apple will be holding its last event of 2020- Apple One More Thing- in which the Cupertino based tech giant will showcase Apple transitioning to Silicon in the Mac desktop lineup.  The “One More Thing” tagline is a classic Apple reference from previous events as Apple looks to announce its first computers powered by Apple’s own Arm-based silicon chips. Apple announced its plans to transition to its in-house chips over Intel processors at WWDC 2020 earlier this year. However, the company is yet to showcase the new hardware that features its native chip.

Apple’s Arm-based Silicon chipset vs. Intel chipset

Apple hasn’t revealed a lot about its silicon chipset or how they’ll affect Mac devices but you can get a good understanding of the benefits from the iPhone and iPad models that have Arm-based chips.

Arm-based silicon chips will be more power-efficient than Intel chips, which could result in big gains in battery life. While Apple’s Arm chips aren’t directly comparable to mobile SoCs, Apple could go in the opposite direction and focus more on performance and more power instead of battery gain.

What to expect from Apple’s ‘One More Thing’ event? 

Earlier at WWDC 2020, Apple announced that it’ll be parting ways with intel-based chipsets and instead be manufacturing its own Arm-based silicon chips for the upcoming Mac lineup. With this change, Apple will look to deliver newer, better, and more powerful performance and technologies.

Earlier, Apple introduced the A14 Bionic chipset to the world with their iPhone devices and now they’ve taken it one step further. The Arm-based silicon chips in the Mac devices are expected to be termed as A14X and these A14X chipsets will be the powerful, upgraded version of the A14 Bionic chipset. This immensely powerful processor will be something that Mac devices have never seen before and it’ll come with four energy-efficient cores and eight high-performance cores.

According to Ming-Chi Kuo, a leading Apple Analyst, Apple might only unveil the 13-inch MacBook Pro at today’s event. However, three Mac models will feature the new and improved Arm-based silicon chipset – 

  • 13-inch MacBook Pro
  • 16-inch MacBook Pro
  • 13-inch MacBook Air

However, this move to switch to Apple’s own Arm-based silicon chipsets doesn’t signal the end of Intel-powered Apple devices. Apple will continue to manufacture and release Intel-powered MacBook devices in the future.

The event doesn’t stop there! There are a lot more that Apple could reveal and it is something that fans have been hoping to hear for weeks. The One More Thing Event might also see Apple disclosing the official release date for the stable MacOS Big Sur Update. Long touted as the next major macOS update, this would bring in a ton of visual changes including new iOS style icons, new startup sounds, a more dedicated control centre, a more translucent menu bar, and a lot more.

The other releases include the official launch of Apple AirPods Studio, a new Apple TV, and Apple AirTags.

Today’s Apple event will take place at 10:00am PST (11:30 IST) from Apple’s Park. Just like Apple’s last two hardware-focused events and the WWDC 2020, this event will also take place virtually and be streamed live through Apple’s dedicated Events site, on Apple TV app, and on Apple’s official YouTube channel.
