The wait for the iPhone 12 series may be longer than expected. A new report states that Apple is likely to unveil the new iPhone 12 series in November, much later than its typical September launch event.
The delay in iPhone 12 launch event is said to be due to the ongoing pandemic, which has affected the supply chain production and logistics. The GSMArena report, citing a Cowen Investment Bank note, further states a combined 35 million unit production output in Q2 2020, which would be 13 percent lower than the same period in 2019.
Moneycontrol could not indepently verify the report.
Another report previously predicted the delay by a month or two due to mass production issues.
