Apple has finally announced its highly awaited November Event to be held on November 10th at 10 a.m. PST, streaming directly from the Apple Park on apple.com. This event is expected to bring a range of new Products to the Apple lineup including Apple Silicon Macs, AirTags, and more. The tagline for this event is “One more thing” signifying that we will see a special product at this event. The last time Apple had a “One more thing” segment in their event was on September 12th, 2017, where they unveiled the revolutionary iPhone X with Face ID and introduced the world to a new Gesture-Based Navigation System, which changed the entire Smartphone market. Tomorrow, November 3rd will mark 3 years since this revolutionary iPhone was launched. This event is expected to bring several products to the Apple ecosystem including new Apple Silicon Macs, AirTags, iPad Pro, Apple TV & AirPods Studio.
This is the first time Apple will be holding an event in November in the recent times. Apple has recently announced the new iPad (8th Generation), iPad Air (4th Generation) and Apple Watch Series 6 in the September Special Event on September 15th with the new iPhone 12 Series with 5G and the HomePod Mini in the October ‘Time Flies’ Event on October 13th. Now, Apple has a total of 4 events this year including WWDC 2020, September Special event, October ‘Time Flies’ Event & the upcoming November ‘One more thing’ event.
What to expect?
- Mac with Apple Silicon: Apple had announced in WWDC 2020 that it will be launching its first Mac with Apple Silicon this year. Apple Silicon may start off from the MacBook Pro, along with a redesigned body and bezel-less display. Rumored to come in 14-inch and 16-inch sizes, the new MacBook Pro may launch with the A14X chip, the same chip which will be used on the upcoming iPad Pro. As this will have Apple’s own A14X chip, it may feature 5G connectivity through eSIM and Face ID. Appleosophy had found references to Face ID in macOS Big Sur Beta 3. Read more about it here. Apple is also expected to release new iMacs with the A14T Bionic chip in 2021. Read more about it here. Reliable Twitter Leaker L0vetodream says that we will see two 13-inch MacBooks at this event, possibly a 13-inch MacBook Pro and a 13-inch MacBook Air.

2. AirTags: The highly anticipated Product, AirTags, is also expected to be announced at this event as a “One more thing”. AirTags are small tracking devices, which can be tagged with any of your items like keys, adding a tracking ability to the item. It may also support Qi-standards of Wireless Charging. Users can track their item on the Find My App across their Apple Devices. Earlier in April, Apple had leaked the existence of AirTags in one of their Support Videos for “How to erase your iPhone” on their Apple Support YouTube channel, first discovered by Appleosophy Editor Pururaj Dutta. Read more about it here. AirTags will emit beams, which will reach other Apple devices connected to the internet, and the exact location will be encrypted and sent to your iCloud account for you to see its exact location on Find My across your devices. The same technology is being used by iPhone running iOS 13 or later, enabling users to track their devices even if they are not connected to the internet. The U1 Ultra-Wideband chip, currently on the iPhone 11 & iPhone 12 series is also expected on the new AirTags. Check out our AirTags Concept created by Appleosophy Media Designer Anton Bulzomi:
3. iPad Pro: Apple is expected to bring the new A14X Chip to the new iPad Pro lineup along with 5G with mmWave on Cellular models, U1 Ultra-Wideband chip, and a new Blue Color. This iPad may also come with Mini-LED Display Technology.
4. Apple TV: Apple may announce a new 6th Generation Apple TV 4K with the A12 Bionic Chip running the latest version of tvOS 14.
5. AirPods Studio: Apple’s rumored Over-the-Ear Headphones are also expected at this event. These headphones will not have any Left or Right side as it is rumored to adjust according to the way you put it on. However, there’s just a slight possibility for this to happen and the announcement may end up getting delayed until March 2021. Apple is gradually phasing out Beats, predicted by leaker Jon Prosser earlier this year. Apple entered the Audio Segment with AirPods, followed by the HomePod, and then Apple recently rebranded Beats 1 Radio to Apple Music 1. Apple has also recently removed 3rd party Audio products from its Online Store with now only Apple and Beats Audio products available to customers, having the ultimate goal to phase out Beats as AirPods Studio will be the next step towards it.
Along with these exciting new products, Apple is also expected to release the final version of macOS 11 Big Sur to the public.
