A rumor from earlier this month suggested that Apple could be holding another virtual event next month where they will be unveiling their first commercially available Apple Silicon powered Mac computers. Now according to a tweet by leakster Jon Prosser, he claims that the event will be held on the 17th of November.
Prosser believes that the event invites will also be sent out on the 10th of November, a week before the event which is typically Apple’s style. We can’t say with certainty that this date is accurate, but Prosser has been scarily accurate with his claims, so it is possible that these dates are the real deal, but we suggest you take it with a grain of salt for now.
It is unclear what computers will be announced at the event. Apple is largely expected to take things slow and start with lower-end models before moving onto Pro models, and one of the rumors is that the company could be reviving its 12-inch MacBook, as well as giving its MacBook Air an Apple Silicon variant.
You should see this confirmed with an announcement on Tuesday, November 10th.

However, a report from earlier this week revealed that Apple had filed for various certifications at the Eurasian Economic Commission where it was suggested that there could also be desktop models on the way. Given that the Apple Silicon developer’s kit is based on a Mac mini, it is possible that Apple could be preparing a commercial variant as well, but we’ll just have to wait and see.
