Apple is hosting HUGE virtual event tonight with even more new gadgets incoming
APPLE has announced a surprise event for November 10 (yes, tonight!) – just days after launching a quartet of new iPhones.
The Californian tech giant will have held three events in as many months, marking a blockbuster year for new Apple gadgets.

When is the new Apple event?
Apple sent out invites to its special event on November 2, 2020.
But the event won’t take place until November 10 – next week.
It kicks off at 10am local time in California, which translates to 1pm New York time and 6pm London time.
As always, it’s expected that you’ll be able to live-stream the event for free.
The event will likely focus on Mac products[/caption]
Apple ‘One More Thing’ November 2020 event – what to expect
This year’s event is called One More Thing, which isn’t surprising given we’ve just already had two Apple events since September.
Those events focused on products like iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch – so it’s easy to guess what’s next.
All bets are on Mac being the major focus of Apple’s November 2020 event.
Geeks have been eagerly awaiting brand new Mac products that run on Apple’s own chips – for the first time ever.
It means that the usual Intel processors will be replaced by new ARM-based Apple Silicon chips.
Part of the reason this has everyone excited is because of the iPhone.
Apple’s iPhone has been running on a custom processor built in-house for years – with great results.
The handset offers comparatively great performance and battery life given the raw hardware on board, because Apple can optimise the entire system.
By putting Apple’s own chips in the Mac, it can control the raw processing hardware and the software over the top too.

This could mean we see major boosts to performance or battery life with future Mac products.
It’s not entirely clear which products will be launched with Apple Silicon on-board.
Rumours of new MacBook Pro models have been swirling for months, although any MacBook could receive an upgrade.
But that’s not all: there’s talk of some other products being in the pipeline too.
Apple’s long-rumoured AirPods Studio are a pair of wireless headphones that could appear during the event.
And then there’s AirTags – wireless location trackers that can be attached to objects and monitored using an iPhone app.
Neither product has been formally confirmed by Apple, but could be unveiled at the November 2020 event.
Sadly, Apple is staying mum for now – so we’ll have to wait for the big event to find out the truth.
