‘One more thing’: What to expect from Apple’s surprise event

Technology
Ahead of Apple's surprise event this evening, with the title "One more thing" - a catchphrase used by Steve Jobs ahead of particularly significant announcements - we take a look at what's likely to be announced.The special event will be broadcast from Apple Park at 6pm UK time, and the company is expected to announce its first MacBooks running on Apple Silicon chips rather than Intel CPUs.

The Apple event logo in AR resembles opening and closing a MacBook. A new MacBook powered by Apple Silicon is coming. pic.twitter.com/R6pIpJTWPC— Neil Cybart (@neilcybart) November 2, 2020 ...
