Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we have witnessed major delays in just about every major medium there is. While we’ve been hearing for a while now that the iPhone 12 lineup will be unaffected, it looks like that isn’t entirely the case if a new report is to be believed.
According to the Wall Street Journal, the iPhone 12 lineup is still slated to launch this year, but global production will be delayed about a month. Also, Apple is also going to cut numbers of iPhones produced this year by up to 20% in the second half of the year. It isn’t as bad as it could have been, but some of you out there may have a slightly harder time getting your hands on new devices later this year.
Apple is expected to reveal their high-end iPhones in September, which is when they usually do their big iPhone unveilings. A one month production delay does not appear to be changing this at all, but it has been previously reported that at least one model may not be available to order until October or November. It was previously reported to be the 6.7-inch iPhone 12, with the other two still slated to launch in September.
This all needs to be taken with a grain of salt at this point, considering that it isn’t coming directly from Apple. Still, due to the reliability of the sources we can expect that this will all likely pan out. We’ll bring you more information as soon as it becomes available.
