Apple is supposedly preparing a unique occasion for November that will convey the expression of the organization's first Apple silicon Macs, as indicated by productive leaker Jon Prosser.

Intel will still have some presence in Apple computers, however, with CEO Tim Cook saying that there are still a few computers with Intel chips coming down the pike that he was "really excited" about, and said that Apple will continue to provide software updates for Macs with intel chips for "years to come". Of note, the following week is Thanksgiving, so it seems unlikely that the event would be later than Prosser's prediction.

The ARM motion will be one of the largest modifications the Mac lineup will glimpse since it transitioned to Intel chips in the previous decade.

The reveal of a Mac-themed event isn't a huge surprise - after all, Craig Federighi, Apple's SVP of software engineering confirmed at WWDC that Apple is planning to ship its first Mac with Apple Silicon by the end of the year, and there have been multiple leaks surrounding a potential Apple Silicon-based MacBook.

A tweet from 9to5Mac says that the new Macs will most probably launch on November 17th, in the event of the Company. And macOS 11 Big Sur is sure to get a release date as well. In a month's time, Apple will have another big revelation for fans of the Mac and MacBooks. Apple could also reserve the new chips for its high-end PCs initially while using Intel power for the affordable models. Rumors had it that the new chip will also help Apple change the design of the MacBook laptops.

According to Prosser, The AirPods Studio Headphone is not going to be launched until March 2021.

You should note that Apple already uses its own chips in the iPhones, iPads, HomePod, AirPods, and Apple Watch. Not much in known about the AirPods Studio, apart from a render showcasing a sleek "over-the-ear" profile.
