For a while, rumors concerning the delay in the start of shipments of the forthcoming iPhone 12 family is making rounds.
In comparison with Apple’s past release time frame, this wouldn’t be anything too huge, but would possibly shift things by a couple of weeks.
In its recent earnings call for the third fiscal quarter of 2020 (also known as the second calendar quarter), Apple has more or less confirmed this.
Apple’s CFO, Luca Maestri, stated that in the previous year Apple had begun selling the new iPhone generation in late September, but in 2020 Apple projects supply will be “available a few weeks later.”
This is definitely foreseen to impact the performance of the next quarter, the third calendar quarter, given that the new variants will completely miss it, not being released before September ends.
In accordance with few rumors of the past, these brand new iPhones could still possibly be revealed in September as is customary, but the shipping won’t take place until sometime in October. In its earnings call, Qualcomm also indicated something alike when discussed about a “slight delay” of a “flagship phone launch.”
