The new ones iPhone peak of Apple they may arrive a little later than usual this year.
A Wall Street Journal report says Apple is postponing mass production of the smartphone by about a month.
It is unclear how this delay will affect the launch of the new iPhone. Apple phones typically launch in mid-September, with the company ramping up mass production in early summer. This year, the report said, Apple will build “some” of the new iPhones from July to September, with an increase in production coming a month later.
That could mean a number of things: Apple could launch iPhones in September, as usual, but have them hit the market a month later. He might even think about some models coming sooner than others. Or it could just postpone the launch altogether.
The WSJ report echoes other recent rumors, stating that Apple plans to launch four iPhone models this year: a 5.4-inch phone, two 6.1-inch phones, and a 6.7-inch phone. , all equipped with OLED displays.
The main reason behind the postponement is the pandemic Coronavirus, which disrupted much of Apple’s supply chain in China in January. Factories have since reopened, but Apple stores outside of China are still closed as numerous countries have imposed lockdowns to slow the spread of the virus. The WSJ report says the pandemic has also impacted the way Apple develops the iPhone, with engineering teams having to guide Chinese colleagues through the assembly process via video calls.
