Apple has just announced another special event on November 10, which will follow its previous October 13 event where the company unveiled its latest iPhones and other devices. The “One more thing” teaser suggests Apple is planning some big product launches before the end of the year, and the most plausible candidates are the first ARM-based Macs the company first discussed at its June WWDC developer conference.

At the time, the company said that the first Macs powered by Apple Silicon would be released before the end of the year, and the company also demoed several apps that have already been recompiled for the ARM-based Macs such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, as well as Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. Apple expects its whole Mac line to make the transition to in-house Apple Silicon over the next two years, though the company will continue to release Intel-based Macs in the near future.
Apple will hold its next event on the same day Microsoft will launch its Xbox Series X and Series S consoles, and we may also hear about some Apple TV updates. We learned earlier today that the Apple TV app will launch on Xbox One and Series X|S consoles on November 10, and we’re wondering if the app will eventually make its way to the Windows 10 Microsoft Store. Last year, a LinkedIn job listing revealed that Apple’s Media Apps team was looking for a Senior Software Engineer to work on “the next generation of media apps for Windows.” After iTunes for Mac was discontinued last year, maybe it’s for iTunes for Windows to finally say goodbye.
