Apple has announced a “One More Thing” event, scheduled for November 10, where the company is expected to unveil its new Macs.
“One more thing” was a favorite phrase Steve Jobs used to announce some of the company’s biggest products. Even after this death, the company has continued to use the catchphrase in some of its biggest announcements. The MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, FaceTime, Apple Watch, Apple Music and the iPhone X were all unveiled as “one more thing.”
At WWDC, the company announced it was transitioning the Mac platform to its own custom silicon and away from Intel’s chips. Apple has a long history of using its own silicon, based on ARM’s designs, in its iPhone and iPad line of devices. In recent years, those devices have rivaled the performance of traditional computers, but without the heat and energy consumption.
When Apple announced the transition, it said the first new Macs would be available before the end of the year. So it’s a good bet the company’s “One More Thing” event will finally unveil the new computers. Many experts expect a revived 12-inch MacBook or a new 13-inch MacBook Pro to be the first device released. Either way, the world will finally know next week.
