At the announcement, Apple detailed how its new Silicon chips are similar to those used in the iPhone and iPad, and that it was designed in-house by Apple itself. The company teased not only improved performance but generally more efficient Macs that offer a deeper level of integration between hardware and software, providing a key feature that Mac users have been requesting: the ability to run iOS apps natively on Mac. 

There's no word yet on which Mac will be the first to get the Apple Silicon treatment, but rumours currently suggest the company is planning on revealing a new MacBook Air - or even revive the MacBook branding - to make Apple's low-cost laptop range more competitive. 

Of course, Macs aren't the only thing Apple is working on at the moment. It's also possible that Apple will finally lift the lid on its rumoured AirTag trackers after a no-show at the iPhone event in October.

Jon Prosser seems to think they're still on track for announcement in November, although the high-end AirPods Studio originally slated for this year have reportedly been pushed back to 2021, meaning we won't be seeing them at the upcoming event. We cover the latest AirPods Studio news separately for those interested. 

The Apple Event is due to kick off on 10 November 2020 at 10am PST, or 6pm GMT for those of us tuning in from the UK. You'll be able to watch it via the Apple Event site, or via the company's YouTube channel. We cover how to watch the Apple November Event in more detail separately for those that want to know more.
