According to many years of tradition, Apple holds a presentation of new smartphones in September, but this year the company's plans were interfered with by the coronavirus pandemic. The US edition of WSJ reported on the postponement of the release of the iPhone 12 and the expected timing of the announcement and appearance of the flagship gadgets in retail.
According to the source, the new Apple smartphones will not be released until the end of October 2020. Accordingly, the presentation itself will shift in the calendar, which is usually held on the eve of the retail debut of the next branded line of devices. Analysts also report a 20% reduction in the company's output in the second half of the year.
According to previous leaks, Apple plans to introduce four versions of the iPhone 12 at once: one model will get a display with a diagonal of 5.4 inches, two more will get 6.1-inch screens, and the senior representative of the series - a 6.7-inch matrix. The entire line of gadgets will be built on the basis of the 5-nm mobile platform Apple A14 produced by TSMC. In addition, the design of the devices will change, which will be closer to the iPad Pro than to the previous series of "Apple" smartphones.
The exact date of the presentation and the price of new products have not been announced by the manufacturer.
