Traditionally, Apple makes its big announcement for the latest iPhone devices in September. But that release window may not be possible this year if the new rumours that surfaced are true. Sources with inside news have claimed that Apple is going to delay the launch of the iPhone 12 series due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to both Ross Young, production of display panels for the iPhone 12 series of devices will start 6 weeks behind schedule. He claimed that the delay could mean a delayed launch for the iPhone 12 series from September to October. Jon Prosser also claimed that his source within Apple told him that the company is considering moving the iPhone 12 launch event to October. He suggested that this could be due to Apple hoping for a loosening of the restrictions in the US, allowing for actual media presence at the official launch.
We also hear that iPhone 12 panel production will start around 6 weeks late, so rather than early June, it won’t start till the end of July which should imply a delay in the iPhone 12 launch from September to October. https://t.co/2dHeFVZckL— Ross Young (@DSCCRoss) May 18, 2020
The launch of the iPhone 12 series this year is highly anticipated, as it is expected to present a big leap in technological improvement. At least 2 of the iPhone 12 variants are expected to come with 5G support and all of them will have the new A14 Bionic chipset, which should greatly boost features and performance. Besides that, the high-end variants are supposed to have new features like sensor-shift stabilisation and LiDAR scanner for the camera setups, as well as 120Hz refresh rate for the display.
While the above are unconfirmed rumours, both Young and Prosser have a track record of accurate leaks. It's possible that their leaks are accurate this time as well, but do take it with a pinch of salt. With that said, a 1-month delay isn't a big deal but what do you think?
