after reporting a record-breaking third fiscal quarter that blew up Wall Street expectations, Apple had some bad news to announce. “As you know, last year we started selling iPhones at the end of September. This year, we expect the supply to be available a few weeks later,” said Luca Maestri, Chief Financial Officer of the company. later. “
The Apple iPhone 12 line will launch in October or November
The comment means we can see 5G 2020 IPhone 12 models launched in October or even until November. This is completely characterless for Apple which usually keeps everyone guessing when it will start shipping its latest iPhone models until they are unveiled. But yesterday, when it reported its third-quarter fiscal revenue, chip designer Qualcomm said shipments of 5G handsets would fall 15% in the current quarter because an unnamed customer was planning to delay a “global 5G flagship launch.” It did not take much work to discover that the unnamed customer was Apple.
Ever since the coronavirus started making its way around the world earlier this year, it had been rumored that Apple may have to delay launch of iPhone 12. The company’s supply chain was operating at less than full speed, and assembly lines at facilities run by Foxconn, its top manufacturing partner, were up 50%. of capacity as supplies were scarce. As the first calendar quarter closed, Apple was able to reopen all of its retail stores in China as they began to close in the US and Foxconn hit the goals of recruiting its employees ahead of schedule.
The launch of the Apple iPhone 12 5G series will be delayed for several weeks
In the past, Apple has had to release several iPhone models after September. In 2017, the iPhone X was not launched until November 3 of the same year. A year later, The iPhone XR was not released until October 26, and last year was the first time since 2016 that all iPhone models were released in September.
We should see four new iPhones released this year, including the 5.4-inch iPhone 12, the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Max, the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro, and the 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max. All four models will be powered by the 5nm A14 Bionic chipset. “Pro” units will have 6 GB of memory and storage options will start with 128 GB. The premium variants will come with Wide, Ultra-wide and Telephoto cameras along with the LiDAR depth sensor. First seen on the 2020 iPad Pro, the flight time sensor will provide more accurate depth sensors for enhanced portraits and enhanced AR capabilities. We can see that the “Pro” models steal another feature from the iPad Pro at the 120Hz ProMotion refresh rate. This gives users buttery with smooth motion and enhanced animation for video games. At 120Hz, the screen updates 120 times every second. However, there has been some speculation as to whether the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max will actually include the feature.
The iPhone 122 2020 series will also have a different design. Apple is replacing the rounded sides seen on the device since the 2014 iPhone 6 line with the flat sides that Apple first used with iPhone 4 in 2010. Have you put your heart into one of the 5G series models iPhone 12? You may need to keep a few extra weeks before buying one. And when you do and open the box, you may notice that Apple has decided not to include a brick to charge the phone. While the 2020 iPhones will support 20W charging speed, those who want to take advantage of the faster charging speed will have to purchase the 20W charger separately. Moreover, Apple is also expected to drop EarPods wired headphones from the iPhone 12 series boxes in an effort to drive demand for its Bluetooth AirPods.
