Apple is reportedly considering delaying the launch of iPhone 12-series. Apple generally announces new iPhone-series in September every year but due to the Coronavirus outbreak, Apple might delay the launch by two months.
The reason for the delay is the hampering of supply-chain due to ongoing travel restrictions. Due to restrictions, Apple’s engineering team couldn’t travel to China and approve the product. The other reason is that customer demand might get weak due to pandemic Coronavirus.
According to a report from Nikkei, “Suppliers will start shipping in big volumes to meet Apple’s new product launch by the end of August, instead of like in previous years, when it would be sometime in June.”
Apple is expected to launch four new iPhone 12 models–a 5.4-inch model, a two 6.1-inch model, and a 6.7-inch model. All models will come with 5G support and OLED display. The high-end models will feature a triple-camera setup and a lidar sensor.
Apple would take the final decision by May 2020. In the worst-case scenario, Apple might delay the launch until 2021.
