Apple is all set to lift the veil off its first-ever ARM-based MacBooks on November 10. A report suggests that there are three models in the works, a 13-inch MacBook Pro, 16-inch MacBook Pro, and a 13-inch MacBook Air. A new iPad Pro could be launched alongside them as well.

Despite their announcement several months ago, Apple has been fairly tight-lipped about when it will unveil the world's first ARM-based Macbooks. Earlier reports have told us that the notebooks would likely land before the year ends. Thankfully, that wait got a whole lot shorter, as Apple just announced its 'One More Thing' event on November 10.

A report from Bloomberg suggests that Apple will unveil three new Macbooks at the event, namely a 13-inch MacBook Air, 13-inch MacBook Pro, and a 16-inch MacBook Pro. Renowned Twitter leaker l0vetodream also confirms that there will be two 13-inch MacBooks but neglected to mention the exact model.

We can also expect Apple to unveil a new iPad Pro alongside the MacBooks. An earlier report told us that Apple's in-house silicon was likely to come in two variants, one with eight cores and the other with twelve. The former will likely be a modified version of the A14X Bionic, which is also set to power the iPad Pro.

Considering that MacBooks need to pack a more formidable punch than iPads, we can expect Apple to use a 4+4 (power/efficiency) configuration on the eight-core chip and an 8+4 layout on the eight-core variant. There's a more powerful sixteen-core version of the silicon due to hit the shelves in 2021.
