How to watch Apple’s One More Thing event

After having refreshed its iPad and announced a slew of new iPhone 12 models in recent months, Apple is back again today, November 10. The company sent out a save-the-date invitation last week with a cryptic “One more thing” message, and though Apple has not disclosed what will be announced, analysts and industry insiders are clear: New Macs will make their debut.

Unlike Apple events in prior years, the Cupertino, California Mac-maker will likely continue to debut and showcase its latest products using a livestream. Apple fans worldwide will be able to tune in live on November 10 to see Apple give its Mac computers a live brain transplant, as the transition from Intel processors to Apple silicon will make its debut on commercial computers.

Apple’s event is scheduled to commence at 10 a.m. PT on Tuesday, with the company livestreaming its announcement from its Apple Park campus. Apple has created a placeholder on its special events page on its website, and fans can visit the site from a PC, Mac, or mobile phone to watch the stream on launch day. Additionally, the YouTube live stream from Apple’s channel is also embedded above.

If you own an Apple TV, you can also watch the livestream through the TV app on your set-top box.

And if you can’t watch live, be sure to visit Digital Trends for all the latest news and coverage, as we’ll have all the updates for you from our live blog. Apple will also make a video of the event available to view after the event if you’re not able to tune in when the presentation starts.

What to expect

Apple being Apple, the company has been cryptic about what to expect at this special event, but industry observers believe that the first consumer Macs with Apple’s custom ARM-based silicon will make their debut. And even though Apple had seeded developers with Mac Mini desktops running Apple silicon following the announcement at WWDC earlier this year, we believe that the first consumer Macs running these new chipsets will be Apple’s portable MacBook line rather than desktop computers.

Apple is expected to debut new MacBooks running on the A14 chipsets that debuted on the latest iPhone and iPad Air models. The new processors will come with integrated Apple-designed GPUs alongside machine learning cores.

Prior to the announcement, famed Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo had speculated that a 13.3-inch MacBook Pro or a MacBook Air will be among the first products to debut with this custom processor later this year. In 2021, we may see a big redesign, with 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models running Apple’s custom chipset.

More recently, Bloomberg reported that we will see up to three MacBook models running Apple’s silicon, though none of this has been confirmed. These include the 13- and 16-inch MacBook Pro models and a new 13-inch MacBook Air. The two 13-inch MacBook models are expected to be announced on stage, and it’s uncertain if the 16-inch Pro is far enough along in its development to make it to today’s keynote. The two smaller models are said to be manufactured by Foxconn, with Quanta Computer handling manufacturing for the 16-inch model.

Though the laptops are expected with new silicon inside, don’t expect any design changes. Early reports indicate that Apple will largely use the slim unibody design on its current lineup. With the efficiency of ARM-based processors, these same designs can bring much longer battery life than the current Intel models. And with Apple showing older software can be emulated to run on ARM processors without any slowdowns, you can expect the same great, fast experience running all your software on new Apple silicon Macs.

In addition to the MacBook models, Apple is also said to be working on a new iMac and smaller Mac Pro models with its new Apple silicon for a future release.

It’s likely we are now only a few weeks away from seeing Apple’s first Macs loaded with M3 chips, but the entire lineup has apparently just been leaked for all to see. And there are a few big surprises among the rumored Macs.

We’ve gained these revelations thanks to journalist Mark Gurman, whose reports are usually impressively accurate when it comes to upcoming Apple products. Gurman’s latest report is allegedly based on chip configurations Apple is testing internally, so things could change in the future.

The MacBook Pro 14 still obliterates this Windows laptop

Several of Apple's latest MacBooks are on our list of the best laptops around, and the MacBook Pro 14 is arguably the best 14-inch laptop you can buy today. Any new machine that wants to compete has to offer an incredibly compelling combination of features and value.

Lenovo's Slim Pro 9i 14 is a laptop that's obviously aimed directly at the MacBook. It has some powerful components inside and it performs just as well. It's also less expensive. Unfortunately, even those things fail to give it a leg up.

While the laptop industry continues to move toward 14-inch laptops and larger, the 13-inch laptop remains an important category. One of the best is the Apple MacBook Air M2, with an extremely thin and well-built chassis, great performance, and incredibly long battery life.

Lenovo has recently introduced the third generation of its ThinkPad X1 Nano, one of the lightest laptops we've tested and a good performer as well. It's stiff competition, but which of these two diminutive laptops stands apart?
