Apple could unveil its first Apple Silicon Mac in mid-November

Apple could unveil its first Apple Silicon Mac in mid-November

Apple announced earlier this year at WWDC 2020 that it will be transitioning Macs to its custom silicon.

The reason is simple: Apple thinks its processors can provide more performance per watt than any existing solution.

This certainly seems to be the case judging by the performance of Apple's own A-series chips that are currently in use in many iPhones and iPads.

The latest rumour about these custom silicons Macs is that Apple will announce them soon at a Mac event in November. Specifically 17 November. This leak comes from noted Apple leaker Jon Prosser.

A Mac event in November makes sense as it would allow the public to absorb news of the new iPhones and then hit them hard with another important product. Apple would certainly want to make a big show of its new custom silicon Mac.

Word on the street is that the first Mac to feature Apple Silicon would be a sub-1kg 12-inch MacBook that will be powered an "A14X" processor that will offer 15 to 20 hours of battery life.

It looks like it could be a very busy holiday season yet for Apple.
