Of course this may be Apple’s summer soap opera. Rumors about possible delays in the launch of the new iPhone 12 now have two more points with the statements by Jon Prosser and processor maker Qualcomm. It seems that both agree that the new iPhone 12 model would not arrive in time to market in September and this news is not new to say, if we look back we will realize that there are several analysts who say so.
COViD-19 main reason for the delay
It may seem a recurring thing that all the media, analysts and other experts in the Apple world focus on the coronavirus as the main problem for the arrival in time of the new model of Apple iPhone, but it does not seem to be another reason. It has been warning for months that the Cupertino firm the device will not be in time for commercialization due to COVID-19 and now Qualcomm and Jon Prosser, expose some details again in this regard.
An interview by Reuters to the financial manager of Qualcomm hints that they will not have 5G modems ready for the iPhone 12 Due to problems caused by the coronavirus, this is logically a clear indicator that the Apple models that carry this chip will not be able to launch on the market in time. It seems that finally the presentation will take place in September as well calculated by some media (DigiTimes confirmed it a few hours ago too) but the first iPhone 12 models with a 5G chip to be marketed will take slightly longer than usual and could be launched even in October.
