It’s (presumably) Apple Silicon time! Of all the events that Apple have held since WWDC, this is the one I’ve been most looking forward to. That’s not to say that the new iPhones and other products aren’t exciting, but this is the one I’ll be glued to.

I won’t make any hardware predictions or comment on any of the rumours. I’m happy to be surprised by the specifics in that department. What I will say is that I expect that this event will continue the message from WWDC, that Apple care deeply about the Mac platform, and the things that make it special. The Mac and macOS were the stars of the conference, and the Big Sur betas have lived up to my expectations through the summer. I can’t wait to see their vision of what the next generation of hardware will make possible on the platform I use all day, every day.

Whatever they announce, I’m not planning on buying anything as I’m still delighted with my 16” MacBook Pro from last year. I’m hoping that I can stay strong and remain a happy owner after Tuesday’s event. Wish me luck! 😬
