Back in March, it was speculated that the launch of the iPhone 12 could be delayed until next year.
According to new information published by the Nikkei Asian Review, the mass production of the iPhone 12 will be delayed for a period of four weeks to two months due to problems caused by plant shutdowns and there is not enough workforce amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Apple is doing its best to reduce this delay. According to the latest data, mass production can start in early October this year. However, this is not a bad scenario, because in March it was suggested that the launch of the iPhone 12 could be postponed until next year.
Apple supplier Broadcom also claims that the new iPhone smartphones will be introduced with a delay of several weeks and will go on sale this fall, but later than fans are used to. So it seems that those wishing to purchase an iPhone 12 will have to be patient.
Earlier it was reported that the American tech giant will ship 30-40 million iPhone 12 smartphones this year. Now the forecast has been cut in half, to 15-20 million units in 2020.
According to the latest data, the new iPhone smartphones will not be equipped with chargers and headphones. This policy change will benefit the packaging for smartphones, which will become thinner and more sophisticated.
