It has been known for quite a long time now that Apple works on computers equipped with an ARM chip, an architecture called Apple Silicon. The question now is when the first machines will be available.
A rumor from the beginning of the month suggested that Apple could organize another virtual event next month to unveil its first machines with an Apple Silicon chip. Among other things, obviously. Today, according to un tweet leakster Jon Prosser, it seems that this event is scheduled for November 17.
The first machines under Apple Silicon unveiled on November 17?
Jon Prosser also believes he knows that the invitations to this event will be sent out on November 10, a week before the festivities, which corresponds well to the habits of the apple brand. Difficult to know for sure if this date is the right one or not but Jon Prosser very often aims right with this kind of announcements. It is therefore quite possible that these dates are the right ones but at this stage, there is only one umpteenth rumor, to be taken with a grain of salt.
It is also difficult to know precisely which machines will be announced during this event. Apple should take it slow with the integration of this new architecture in its catalog starting with entry-level models before moving to Pro models. One of rumors the most persistent is that the Cupertino company takes the opportunity to resuscitate its MacBook of 12 inches. A MacBook Air with Apple Silicon chip is also expected.
But which machines exactly can you expect?
That being said, a report dating back a few days revealed that Apple had filed several files for certifications with the Eurasian Economic Commission. These documents suggested that there might also be desktop models in the works. Since the Apple Silicon Developer Kit is based on a Mac mini, it is possible that Apple is preparing a variant intended for the general public.
One thing is certain, the Apple Silicon Macs are coming soon. And it could be a real revolution in many ways. Again and a little patience!
You should see this confirmed with an announcement on Tuesday, November 10th.
