Apple recently confirmed that the new iPhone 12 will be late. However, this is perhaps only half the truth, as the US Group’s supply chain now suggests. The waiting time could be even longer than originally thought.
Even a technology giant like Apple has to deal with the effects of the coronavirus pandemic. The Californian manufacturer confirmed the rumors that the release of the upcoming iPhone generation could be postponed somewhat last week. New information now enables a more detailed look at what the company could plan for in the fall.
iPhone 12: Apple could plan sales launch in two phases
According to Apple, Apple will put the iPhone 12 on sale in two phases, citing Digitimes. This should suggest information from the supply chain of the new iPhone models. The iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro should make the beginning. Both phones are equipped with a 6.1-inch diagonal display. A few weeks later, the iPhone 12 Pro Max with a 6.7-inch display and the smallest iPhone 12 with a 5.4-inch display will follow.
Overall, according to the current information situation, Apple should launch four iPhone 12 models this year. Despite the delayed start of sales, the iPhone quartet should be presented together.

Waiting time scares potential buyers
With such a staggered release of the new iPhone 12, Apple is taking a risky path. Quite a few potential buyers will probably have to wait until all models are available so that they can get an idea of them in the electronics store before they strike. In addition, there are fears that many cell phone owners will simply be unable to wait – for example, if their smartphone has given up the ghost. You could then resort to competing models instead of waiting for an iPhone 12 that isn’t yet available in its preferred size.
