Apple is delaying the iPhone 12 series launch due to the coating issues on its camera lenses?
The iPhone 12 series has now rumored for some time, as well as the ever-changing launch dates. Apple keeps delaying the launching date, but why? Recently, the a known analyst Ming-chi Kuo reported that the upcoming 5.4-inch and 6.1-inch display iPhone 12 series are having some issues on the ultra-wide camera lens coatings that are more susceptible to cracking.
According to Genius Electronics, the main camera lens supplier deny the reports and mentioned that they are following all the demands and schedules strictly. Apple will not have any delaying issues even though Genius Electronics failed to meet the requirement, Largan Precision’s services will likely compensate for any possible delay. With these services that Apple is currently using, there shouldn’t be any delays.

So much to say, we might expect a different approach from Apple this time. The company will first release the new Apple Watch and iPad, then lastly, the iPhone 12. It’s safe to say that the iPhone 12 event might be happening on 12 October with pre-orders starting on the date itself. Still, for the iPhone 12 Pro, it will be another story as the renowned analyst John Presser only stated the expectation date in November but no exact time yet.
With that said, there’s still no official confirmation on the tech specs and releasing dates, so do take this with a pinch of salt. But when will you expect the iPhone 12 series to launch this year? Let us know at our Facebook page and stay tuned for more tech news updates on TechNave.com.
