What to expect from Apple event
Tonight’s event is expected to be all about hardware announcements unlike WWDC 2020 which is mostly around iOS, iPadOs, MacOS, WatchOS and other software-related news. As the name of the event ‘One More Thing’ suggests the tech giant will make announcements that it hasn’t spoken about or highlighted in the previous launch events this year.
Apple so far this year has made announcements related to iPhones, iOS, iPads, Apple Watch among others but there have been no announcements related to MacBooks. Tonight’s event is said to be all about MacBooks bundled with its own silicon. The company is yet to reveal official details about these new MacBook models.
Besides the upcoming refreshed MacBooks the tech giant is also rumoured to launch the long-awaited AirTags which is in the works for a very long time now.
As per a report by Bloomberg, Apple is pushing the production of the latest 13-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models and also the 13-inch MacBook Air model. It is reported that the Macs with smaller screens are ahead in production and two of the models will be shown at tonight’s event. The report further suggests that the MacBook models will have no visible changes apart from the ARM based silicon chip that is likely to be based on the A14 Bionic chip that runs the latest iPhone 12 models. These MacBooks are said to be produced at Apple’s China unit.
