Apple’s Q3 2020 earnings call revealed some key details regarding the upcoming iPhone 12 series. Earlier it was reported that Apple will launch the iPhone 12 models in October. Now the company’s CFO, Luca Maestri, has announced that Apple is expected to release this year’s iPhone a few weeks later than usual.
Apple CFO Says iPhone 12 “Will Be Available A Few Weeks Later”
Luca Maestri stated that Apple started selling the iPhones in September last year, but delivery will be available “a few weeks later” this year. This isn’t the first time we’ve heard of delays in the launch of the iPhone 12. Yesterday, we heard from Qualcomm that iPhone 12 models will be delayed due to delivery. The company did not mention the name of the iPhone, but simply said that there will be a slight delay in a “flagship phone launch” in the fourth quarter of 2020.
In addition, several other rumors have also suggested that the iPhone will not launch in September, which is Apple’s typical time frame to release the smartphone. Keep in mind that Apple will be introducing the iPhone 12 in September, but delivery will be ready in October.
The iPhone 12 is launched in four different models. The smallest model has a screen size of 5.4 inches and the larger iPhone 12 Pro Max model has a screen size of 6.7 inches. There are two 6.1-inch iPhone 12 models, but only one is the ‘Pro’ variant, while the other will be the successor to the iPhone 11.
Other than this, the iPhone 12 series will also feature 5G capabilities and OLED panels. Apple will also add a LiDAR scanner to the mix similar to the one on the 2020 iPad Pro models. There will be many other additions, so stay tuned.
