Apple is slated to launch four models of the iPhone 12 in different sizes including a 6.7″, 6.1″ and a 5.4″ OLED screens – some reportedly with 5G and in-display fingerprint sensor.
The pandemic has affected iPhone 12’s mass production plans delaying them by around a month, according to The Wall Street Journal.
It’s worth noting this doesn’t affect the scheduled launch dates around Septemeber. In previous years, the Cupertino-based tech giant handled mass manufacturing so that when launch day arrived, the new iPhones get delivered to retailers so that consumers can get to purchase the shiny new devices.
Production issues will mean that the new iPhone 12 will be unavailable once they are launched. The new devices will take a while to be available in retail stores.
Therefore, it is highly likely that the new iPhone 12’s could go on sale in early November.
