Often «cocoa» there is mounted around the presentation of the new iPhone 12. After leaking their prices and the variety of models of the firm, last week different experts predicted that the launch of the Apple phones would be delayed until October. Today a new theory that claims to divide the launch into two phases begins to take shape.
We all know that, for many years, Apple usually presents its new top of the range in the first half of September. Unfortunately this year the emergence of the coronavirus has led many manufacturers, including Apple, to have trouble bringing the development of their new phones to fruition. If we add to this that in 2020 we will see the first iPhone compatible with 5G networks, it seems quite evident that the brand will not arrive in time.
Yes last week, Apple confirmed that its launch event will be delayed due to the current global health crisis and travel restrictions. Now the idea arises that Apple will launch “what you have” in September, leaving the rest of the releases for later.
Different models, different releases
This year it is expected that Apple presents four iPhones with OLED screen in sizes of 5.4, 6.1 and 6.7 inches. It’s unclear if all of the models in the next line will be available later than usual, or if some models will come out first followed by additional models, but a new DigiTimes report citing supply chain source suggests Apple may adopt a phased launch approach.
The SLP motherboard supplier for two of these four iPhones has already begun shipping to shape these mobiles while the latter will begin in late August. In this way Apple can launch its 5G iPhones in two stages, with the two 6.1-inch models (iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Max) being the first two to see the light, leaving for later the smallest model (the iPhone 12 5.4-inch) and the largest (the iPhone 12 Pro Max 6.7 inch) for later.
Since the development of some would be close to its end, the brand would have chosen to maintain a September release schedule, even if it is half gas. In this way, he would have time to receive all the necessary components to give life to the rest of the iPhone 12 family models and present them, even if later, before the end of the year.
For now, as you can imagine, we do not have any confirmation of official dates by those from Cupertino.
