We know a lot about the upcoming iPhone, except when it will be officially announced and go on sale. There are a lot of uncertainties ahead of iPhone releases but this year there’s even more. Because of the global health situation, Apple had to temporarily close down some factories, earlier in the year. This caused the company to announce some delays in launching the iPhone 12, but nothing too dramatic.
The latest report from DigiTimes has the iPhone 12 arriving in October, with production set to start in July. For previous iPhones, Apple started production in June for the usual September launch, so this makes sense. The first to enter the manufacturing line will be the 6.1-inch iPhone 12, ahead of the other models. This means the iPhone 12 Max and iPhone 12 Pro will be produced first because Apple is using different touch systems than the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 and 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max.
Previous rumors also predict the arrival of the iPhone 12 in late October – early November, so we are holding our breaths. There is also a chance not all models will be here at once. Apple has previously launched the iPhone X in November 2017, after releasing the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus in September the same year
Taking into account the current situation, Apple is intending to reduce the number produced handsets by up to 20% in 2020. Still, the new iPhone will probably be in huge demand. The iPhone 12 promises top specs and it will apparently be slightly cheaper ($649) than the iPhone 11 ($699) when it came out.
