A month would separate us from the first official announcements concerning MacBooks equipped with ARM processors, the Apple Silicon Mac. It is the American YouTuber passionate about the Apple universe, Jon Prosser, who evokes this date on Twitter.
To confirm, there IS a November ARM Mac event.
I’m hearing November 17th.

A firing window that had also been mentioned by Bloomberg, based on the projections of analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, rather seasoned in the matter.
This online event could well take place on November 17th. The invitations could even be launched from November 10.
Apple: a call to ARMs on time
It is Apple’s practice to do this. According to statements made at the American firm’s WWDC 2020 developer conference, its first machines had to be presented very quickly. MacBook 13 could initiate Apple’s transition from the world of the x86 processor (Intel) to that of the SoC (Apple Silicon ARM). This does not mean, however, that they will be available for purchase immediately or a few days later.
The calendar of releases and announcements was already quite dense at Apple, since the start of the school year and it seems that Cupertino still has some autumn surprises in store for us.
