According to leaker Jon Prosser, Apple will have another event on Nov. 17, when it plans to launch new Macs with Apple silicon inside.
To confirm, there IS a November ARM Mac event.
I’m hearing November 17th. 🗓

Prosser claims the news will probably be officially unveiled a week before, on Nov. 10.
New Macs launching isn’t a surprise; during its WWDC event in June, Apple said it would launch the first Mac with Apple-branded, ARM-based chips before the end of 2020.
The timing, if accurate, is interesting; it’s not often that Apple treats us with three major hardware launch events three months in a row. Of course, if it weren’t for the COVID-19 pandemic, the company probably would’ve launched the iPhone 12 in September, alongside the Apple Watch and iPad Air.
Prosser’s prediction lines up with a Bloomberg report from earlier last month, which also said Apple is planning to launch new Macs in November.
As for which Macs will be launched at this event, we’ve heard all sorts of rumors. Often-accurate Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said Apple might launch a 13-inch MacBook Pro with Apple silicon in late 2020, and another report from The China Times said we could see an ultra-light MacBook with an Apple chip this year, too.
