Clear your calendars for Apple’s November event (video)

From MacRumors’ “November Event Coming? Everything Apple Didn’t Announce at the October Event” posted Friday:

Predicting a possible event date in November is tricky. November 3 is election day in the United States, November 11 is Veterans Day, and November 26 is Thanksgiving in the United States with Apple giving all corporate employees that week off. If Apple does hold an event, we could perhaps get invites in the first week of November with an event to take place on November 9 or 10 ahead of Veteran’s Day.

A recent rumor has suggested that Apple is actually planning an ‌Apple Silicon‌ event for November 17, so that could be when we’ll see an announcement instead. That date is getting awfully close to Thanksgiving a week later, but Apple doesn’t have a lot of options in the month of November.

My take: MacRumors’ list of everything Apple might announce is a familiar one, although the video sprinkles skepticism on a couple of them:

  • Over-the-ear headphones
  • AirTags
  • ARM-based Mac
  • New Apple TV

Cue the video:

    About every 4 years my birthday falls on Thanksgiving. This year is one of those.

    For my birthday this year I’m hoping to get an A-Series MAC announcement and an iPhone 12 Pro Max (Gold) complete with Mag Safe charger.

    Alas, I don’t have any family, or friends, that give that expansively. I’ll have to gift myself (Thank you card already filled out).

    Speaking of caviar wishes & champagne dreams, like PED & Mac MagSafe’s return, I still long for some sort of next-gen Airport Express.
    Of my legacy Airports, 1 is tethered to a large subwoofer, 2 are each tied to amplifiers powering living room ceiling speakers and backyard outdoor speakers. I love sending music or media audio to them using Siri, iPhone, Mac, or AppleTV.
    They work great of course, but for simultaneous using them as extenders, I’d love them to be on the latest or next gen specs/speeds.
    Sigh.

      I’ve found that recent updates to iTunes/Music have made AirTunes and Airport Express much less reliable. 🙁

      But as I wrote at the time, Apple’s dropping their networking hardware was a huge mistake, if Apple was serious about home automation. Networking is the Achilles Heel of home automation, both from a security perspective and ease of use/administration.

    One last thing…

    Except there will never be one “last” thing, there’s to much in the works and existing systems being iterated upon.
