Apple Event Today: Learn what to expect and how to watch livestream

Apple is hosting a virtual event today called One More Thing. The upcoming Apple event, the third in a series of announcements – the most recent being the launch of the latest iPhone models – and possibly the last in 2020, is slated to be the one where the Tim Cook-led team will unveil their MacBook -Models are based on Apple’s own silicon. Apple announced its plans to switch to its internal chips over Intel processors at WWDC 2020 earlier this year. However, the company has yet to unveil the new hardware that has its native chip.

Apple event timing, livestream details

Today’s Apple event begins at 10 a.m. PST (11:30 p.m. IST). Just like the two previous hardware-related events and WWDC 2020, today’s event will take place virtually from Apple Park. Apple will broadcast the event live on its own Apple Events websiteand on the Apple TV app and on YouTube. You can also watch the Apple event live right from the video embedded below.

Apple Event Announcements (expected)

Apple is expected to introduce hardware based on its native ARM silicon. The company did not provide any specific details, although the company’s official invitation mentions the slogan “Something else”.

This likely means the event has nothing to do with the iPad, Apple Watch, or iPhone, as the company has already released its annual announcements in separate events.

The company is also rumored to have had AirTags in the works for a while. But these are unlikely to be announced at today’s event. Instead, expect launches related to the MacBook and other Mac devices.

At WWDC 2020, Apple confirmed its plans to deploy its own ARM-based silicon for the next generation of Mac machines. However, this move has been widely rumored for several years.

New Apple MacBook likely

According to a recent report from Bloomberg, Apple is increasing production of its new 13-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models as well as the 13-inch MacBook Air. The smaller models are said to have the lead in production, and two of them should be will be demonstrated at today’s event. The MacBook models are also said to have no visible changes – apart from the new silicon, which could be based on the A14 Bionic chip that powers the latest iPhone models.

A separate report from Nikkei Asia suggested that Apple could produce up to 25 lakh MacBook units based on its native processor by early 2021. The new MacBook models are to be manufactured in China.

Aside from the first models, it was mentioned in the Nikkei Asia report that Apple should launch additional MacBook models based on its own silicon in the second quarter of next year. This could further reduce reliance on Intel.
