Apple announces surprise event for 10 November

Just when you thought Apple was done launching new products for the year, the company has pulled its trademark "One More Thing" trick and announced another event.

The catch phrase of late Apple boss Steve Jobs was used to unveil major products and features like FaceTime and the MacBook Air at the end of launch events. It has been used less and less under CEO Tim Cook, only to make its comeback now on press invitations for a November event.

"Join us from Apple Park. November 10, 2020, at 10 am PST [1800 GMT]," Apple says in its typically cryptic manner on its events page.

The event, expected to be digital only and pre-recorded like others during the pandemic, comes less than a month after Apple's release of no less than four new iPhones and a HomePod mini on 13 October. The previous event focused largely on the Apple Watch and new iPads, as well.

This leaves only Macs as the remaining hardware to get its own event, and the company is expected to tout a new MacBook running Apple processors, after announcing earlier this year it would stop using Intel chips.

Apple may also release more details, including a formal launch date, on macOS Big Sur, its latest laptop operating system which is currently being beta-tested.
