The countdown has begun – every tech fan out there will be looking forward to the Apple “One More Thing” event on November 10, starting at 10 a.m. PST. This is the last big Apple event of 2020, and will be held online-only due to Covid-19.
What are the big announcements likely to be?
While the focus will likely be on the launch of Apple Silicon Macs, there’s rumors afoot about a possible revamp of the 13-inch MacBook Pro. Apple has already updated this version of the MacBook Pro with more powerful processors and a new scissor keyboard, but there is serious speculation that even more changes are in the works – including a 14.1-inch screen.
Other possible announcements may be about AirTags – Apple’s Bluetooth trackers that can be attached to things like your keys or wallet and can be tracked in the Find My app just like iPhones, iPads, and Macs.
There may be a launch of the AirPods Studio, which are high-end, retro-styled headphones in an over-ear style. Whispers suggest the AirPods Studio will offer Active Noise Cancellation and will cost around $349. While it has been said that the Air Pods Studio would launch before the end of the year, Bloomberg has stated that there have been development issues, so they may not make an appearance until 2021.
As for the new 14-inch MacBook Pro, just what might the changes be? Let’s take a look at the possible upgrades here.
Magic Keyboard is a Possibility

Apple’s butterfly keyboard has had its share of problems over the years. From repeating keys and stickiness to bigger failure rates, Mac users are hoping for a serious revamp.
The new magic keyboard may just be the answer. It features a new scissor-switch mechanism which has 1mm of travel – and is thought to be a lot more durable than the old butterfly keyboard. The 13-inch MacBook Pro got this upgrade in the 2020 revamp, and Apple will likely keep the magic keyboard for the newer MacBook models in the future.
The magic keyboard features better ergonomics, and the arrow keys have been changed to make it far easier to use while touch-typing.
