iPhone 12 launch again rumored for October due to manufacturing delays
Apple has once again been rumored to be delaying the launch of the iPhone 12 until October, with Japanese site Mac Otakara citing sources in the Chinese supply chain who point to this year’s new iPhone models being released a month later than usual.
The month of September typically sees Apple take to the stage to announce its next-generation iPhones, with the devices being released publicly later that month. However, in light of the delays and impact COVID-19 has had on Apple’s global supply chain, multiple sources have claimed this year’s new iPhones could be unveiled later in the year, with October seemingly being the most likely month for the new hardware to be released.
Mac Otakara claims we could be waiting until late October for Apple’s range of 5G iPhones to ship.
It is unclear if Apple will announce the new devices in September as usual, but push their official release back, or if the usual September media event will be postponed to allow the company to reduce the gap between the new device’s announcement and launch.
The Apple Post has gone hands on with a model created based on leaked schematics and specifications for this year’s 6.7-inch “iPhone 12 Pro Max”, offering an early preview of the rumored new squared-edged design, larger display, and more.
