What to expect during Apple's November event

The focus of today's event will be on Apple Silicon and how the Mac lineup will transition away from Intel processors. The first two Macs with Apple Silicon inside are expected to be a new 13-inch MacBook Pro and a new 13-inch MacBook Air.

Apple's first round of Apple Silicon Macs are believed to be based on the same A14 architecture as seen in the iPad Air and iPhone 12. However, the processors will be optimized for the larger thermal windows and power characteristics of laptops.

In addition to Apple Silicon, there are other possibilities for today's event, though they look increasingly unlikely: AirTags, AirPods Studio, and a new Apple TV.
