Apple ‘One More Thing’ Event Today: How to Watch Livestream, Expected Announcement Details

first_imgApple is expected to unveil hardware based on its native ARM silicon. The company hasn’t provided any particular details, though the official invite sent by the company mentions a tagline, “One more thing.”This likely means that the event won’t reveal anything related to iPad, Apple Watch or iPhone as the company has already hosted their annual announcements in separate events.The company is also rumoured to have AirTags in the works for some time now. But those aren’t likely to be announced at today’s event. Instead, expect launches related to the MacBook and other Mac devices.- Advertisement – – Advertisement – Apple is holding a virtual event called ‘One More Thing’ later today. The forthcoming Apple event, which is the third in a series of announcements — the most recent being the launch of the latest iPhone models — and perhaps the last of 2020, is expected to be the one where the Tim Cook-led team will unveil its MacBook models based on Apple’s own silicon. Apple announced its plans to transition to its in-house chips over Intel processors at WWDC 2020 earlier this year. However, the company is yet to showcase the new hardware that features its native chip.Apple event timing, livestream detailsToday’s Apple event will begin at 10am PST (11:30pm IST). Just like the previous two hardware-focussed events, as well as WWDC 2020, the event happening today will take place virtually from Apple Park. Apple will stream the event live through its dedicated Apple Events site, and on the Apple TV app as well as YouTube. You can also watch the Apple event live directly from the video embedded below.Apple event announcements (expected)- Advertisement – Apart from the initial models, the Nikkei Asia report mentioned that Apple is slated to bring other MacBook models based on its own silicon in the second quarter of next year.

World Test Championship progressing as planned, says ICC

first_imgTHE fate of the T20 World Cup out of the way, the ICC’s attention now turns to the World Test Championship (WTC) and in particular, the six Test series postponed because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Progress will not be quick, cautioned the ICC, but for now, matters are proceeding as planned.The very first WTC was due to be completed by the end of March 2021, each of the nine sides having played six series home and away over a two-year period. The top two sides would then play a final, planned for next summer in the UK. But that schedule has been thrown into disarray because of the impact of the pandemic, and only now are members working out ways with the ICC to reschedule their commitments.Priority at the moment is on the six series already postponed: Sri Lanka vs England, one Test between Pakistan and Bangladesh, Bangladesh vs Australia, West Indies vs South Africa, Sri Lanka vs Bangladesh and Bangladesh vs New Zealand.“We’re in discussions with the members now with rescheduling of the series that have been postponed to date,” Geoff Allardice, the ICC’s general manager cricket operations, said.“With the English summer looking like getting both the Test series through, the next ones I know there’s been some talk in the media about West Indies v South Africa are looking to find a suitable time. But outside that series, the next scheduled ones are in late November in New Zealand. So, the focus will come back on the six postponed series and when they might be able to be replayed.“With some of them, discussions are underway but we’re in the process of getting updates from all member countries as to what they’re looking at. At the moment, everything is proceeding as planned. The series on in England right now are part of the WTC and all of the series that have been identified will be part of the Championships. It’s about getting a feel for whether they can all be completed within the competition window ending in March next year.”But given the fluid nature of the impacts of the pandemic – with some countries still to reach a peak and others experiencing, or on the verge of, an expected second wave – decisions won’t be taken quickly. Unlike with the T20 World Cup, which was eventually postponed earlier this month, there isn’t a pressing need for a cut-off date by which decisions need to be taken.“In the last few months, we’ve learned that things change quite quickly,” Allardice said. “One week you think that you’re not going to play for a while and then things begin to open up at a government level and then all of a sudden, things look possible.“A lot of the series we are talking about, if we are saying November-December, January-February, they are six to eight months away and it’s still hard to predict where things will be in some countries that far out. We haven’t got a firm drop-dead date in mind. We are going to get a feel in the next month or two from member countries about when they’ll be able to resume and what their upcoming seasons look like, including the matches and series they need to reschedule that have been postponed.”The next cycle of international cricket could also see efforts made to include an international T20 league in the calendar. The idea was discussed during the planning stages for this cycle but the constraints of the existing FTP meant it went no further.“It was something that was discussed at length and continues to be talked about in terms of how do you achieve it practically,” Allardice said. “What is the right number of teams, the format of the competition? Sometimes you couple ODIs series with Tests series, so how do you do something different without making the league the same number of teams against the same opponents but in T20Is as well?“Ideally you’d like to incorporate more teams in a Twenty20 structure. Given the constraints of the FTP we were looking at a few years ago, it was a bridge too far then but that doesn’t mean it won’t be on the things we’re trying to achieve in the next calendar.” (ESPN Cricinfo).last_img read more
