The next Apple Special Event is expected to take place on the 17th November, and while we still don’t know the specific details, we’re excited to see what the tech giant has in store. While these events typically don’t take place in November, this year is certainly unlike no other.
2020 has been unpredictable, so it’s hard to know exactly what’s coming up at the event. That being said, Tim Cook did promise that we would see a Silicon Mac before the end of the year, so we’re enthusiastic to see how the November 2020 Apple Event pans out. Join us as we reveal our predictions…
Apple Silicon Macs
At WWDC 2020, Apple announced plans to shift away from the current Intel chips to create the first Mac with an Apple Silicon chip by the end of 2020. Similar to the A-series chips found in the iPhone and iPad, these new chips will use ARM-based architecture for speedy processing performance.
At this moment in time, we don’t know which Mac will feature the new Apple Silicon chip, but rumour has it that a resurrected 12-inch MacBook, a new MacBook Air, a new MacBook Pro, or a new 24-inch iMac could be in line.
One thing we do know for certain is that Apple is currently working on a redesigned 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro set for release in 2021. Given the timing, we believe the revamped MacBook Pro line will feature the new chips. By the end of 2021, we could see all of Apple’s revamped iMacs and MacBooks with them.
2020 may finally be the year for a brand-new Apple TV, though it might not be what you expected. Reports indicate that Apple may reinvent the Apple TV as a games console with an A14X-like processor for improved performance.
Further speculation suggests that Apple is going to add ‘Find My’ to the new Apple TV remote to prevent users from losing it. As the Apple TV didn’t show up in the October Apple Event, we expect to see it sometime in 2021.
Rumours of a Bluetooth-based item tracker have been surfacing for years. Similar to Tile, AirTags will help users find everyday essentials such as their wallet, keys and phone. While there’s no guarantee of a specific launch date, a recent leak indicated they were ready to go.
Despite the code being found in early versions of iOS 13, some believe the devices won’t be released until 2021 – or even later. It’s thought Apple are in fact redesigning them to be compatible with the Find My app.
Leasing your Mac
While we don’t know what products will be featured in the upcoming Apple Event, one thing we can be certain of is that any new or revamped items will come at a premium price – especially the Mac computers.
