What's Next From Apple
An invite sent to reporters was simply titled "One More Thing," a line Apple often deploys at the end of big events to debut a surprise product.
The invitation did not give any hints about what Apple () plans to reveal, but many are waiting with baited breath for what may go down on November 10th and are speculating about what part the new chips will or won't play.
At its Worldwide Developer Conference in June, Apple announced it would soon start using its own silicon chips in its Mac computer lineup, switching away from the ones made by Intel that the devices have used for years. Apple said the first Macs with the new chips would begin rolling out by the end of this year.
The ARM-based chips, which Apple designs in-house and already uses a version of in iPhones and iPads, will many analysts say will provide better battery life and more seamless integration across devices.
Given that a number of Apple products have already been released this year, one can only wonder if this development could be the star for the event or if the company has just one more thing up its sleeve. The wait will be over soon.
The event will stream live on the company's website at 1pm ET on November 10. We'll be watching.
