Latest rumor says the ‘iPhone 12’ rollout WILL be delayed

First the reports said the “iPhone 12” would be delayed a couple of months from a September release to an October/November launch. Then Webush analysts said  wasn’t the case and the rollout was still planned for September. Now Nikkei Asian Review.says it WILL be delayed.

Quoting unnamed sources, the article says Apple is facing delays of between four weeks and two months for mass production of the four models in its 5G lineup after postponements caused by factory lockdowns and workplace absences during the pandemic

“What the progress looks like now is months of delay in terms of mass production, but Apple is doing everything it can to shorten the postponement. There’s a chance that the schedule could still be moved ahead,” one of the sources told Nikkei.

The Sellers Research Group says the iPhone 12 will go on sale in September, although it will be near the end of the month.
