The company said that it is switching to custom ARM-based silicon for the Mac line later this year. It is aiming to deliver better higher performance and better battery efficiency. Now, we could have an actual launch date for the upcoming product.

Popular tipster Jon Prosser tips that Apple is planning an event on November 17 where it could unveil the new ARM-powered Mac.
