According to Jon Prosser, the frequent leaker, Apple will host another digital event on November 17th to announce its first Macs with Apple Silicon technology.
Apple has already announced that it will introduce the first Mac this year with an “Apple Silicon” chip instead of an Intel processor. One thing it hasn’t revealed is the date it will be announced. According to Prosser’s source, that date is November 17th. “This should be confirmed with an announcement on Tuesday, November 10th,” Prosser added in a follow-up tweet.
Another known unknown is which Mac model will contain the first custom Arm-based Mac processors. BloombergMark Gurman has announced that it will be a notebook, but rumors have spread about whether it will be a new 13-inch MacBook Pro, a new MacBook Air, or a revitalized 12-inch MacBook.
The Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo assumes that the 13-inch models “MacBook Pro” and “MacBook Air” will be updated with “Apple Silicon” chips before the end of 2020, while the Chinese-language newspaper The China Times The first “Apple Silicon” Mac will be a new variant of the 12-inch Retina MacBook that weighs less than a kilogram and has a battery life of between 15 and 20 hours.
According to rumors, the A14X chip will be included in the first “Apple Silicon” Mac. Apple’s first Mac processors are said to have 12 cores, including eight high-performance cores and at least four energy-efficient cores Bloomberg. Apple is to examine Mac processors with more than 12 cores for the future, with the company already developing a second generation of Mac processors based on the A15 chip.

Finally, keep in mind that Prosser has been hit by his recent Apple leaks, sometimes making accurate claims and sometimes relying on misinterpreted information from his sources or retrospectively revising his predictions. However, Bloomberg has previously said that Apple plans to unveil “Apple Silicon” Macs in November, possibly at an event in November or through a press release, so Prosser’s latest claim may be substantiated.
