We were hoping to get the iPhone 12 series in September. However, Apple has delayed mass production of the next-gen flagship iPhone lineup by about a month. This information was gotten from the Wall Street Journal, citing sources familiar with Apple’s production plans.
This delay is a result of the weakening of global consumer demand due to the coronavirus pandemic. In fact, Apple may even be slashing the iPhone 12 lineup production by up to 20%.
Apple plans to release four new iPhone models later this year. These models will support 5G networks. The company is still planning to go ahead with the launch, even with the effects of the coronavirus pandemic. We will just not get the devices in September as expected.
Meanwhile, Apple launched the iPhone SE 2020 earlier this month. The phone has the same design as the iPhone 8 but sports the A13 Bionic chipset. However, AnTuTu results show that the phone uses an underclocked A13 Bionic chipset.
