Covid-19 Holds A Knock-On Effect On The iPhone 12 Release

Apple is allegedly delaying production of the iPhone 12 by a month, according to the Wall Street Journal.

And while that doesn’t essentially imply a push-back in the release date, it’s likely that the new handset will be in much shorter supply down the track. 

The current pandemic has inevitably caused grievous disruptions to the global supply chains, and according to “people familiar with changes”, disruptions will impact accessibility later in the year. 

Thanks to mass manufacturing over the summer months, Apple is usually able to unveil its new iPhone in September and start distributing devices before the end of the month. Insiders have indicated that the brunt of the pandemic will be seen later in the year with a more restricted supply of the flagship model. 

Setbacks aside, the new iPhone is still one of the most anticipated announcements of the year from the company.
