iPhone 13 to launch on schedule in 2021, claims Ming-Chi Kuo
Respected TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has forecast that 2021’s new iPhone models will launch on schedule following delays this year due to the global COVID-19 pandemic.
According to 9to5Mac, who obtained a copy of Kuo’s investor note, the analyst has reported that Apple should be able to launch the iPhone 13 models on its usual release schedule, which would mean we should get 2021’s new iPhones during September.
Apple launched this year’s four new models in two stages: the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro were released in October and the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 mini and 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max in November with limited supplies.
Factory closures, travel restrictions, and component shortages are just some of the reasons this year’s launch was delayed.
The report would suggest Apple would send its next iPhone models into production in summer, rather than September as it did this year with some iPhone 12 models.
