Qualcomm hints iPhone 12 will only debut in October

Qualcomm has hinted that Apple iPhone 12-series smartphones will be delayed by about a month, and instead of the traditional September announcement, their presentation will take place in October. In parallel, a well-known network informant John Prosser presented similar data.


Prosser in his latest tweet told when Apple will introduce the new iPhones. It will not be September, as it has been over the past seven years, but October of this year. In addition to the iPhone 12 family, according to the blogger, Apple will announce new iPads in October. We are probably talking about the 10.8-inch iPad Air and the updated iPad Mini.

Qualcomm CFO Akash Palkhiwala hinted at a similar schedule in an interview with the Reuters news agency. Commenting on the just ended another financial quarter, Palkhivala said that in the next reporting period, the company expects a decrease in revenue due to the delay in the release of the flagship smartphone. He did not specify which one, but the only “autumn” flagship, the release of which can be so noticeably affected by the economic performance of a major chipmaker, is the iPhone 12.

At the same time, Palkhilava noted that the delay should be short. In his opinion, it will “transfer” part of the profits from the “September” financial quarter to the “December” one, which includes the months of October, November, and December. Based on this, we can assume that originally planned in September, the iPhone 12 announcement will take place in October.

Recall that Qualcomm will supply Apple with chips for the 5G iPhone as part of an agreement that ended its standoff with Apple. However, according to numerous rumors, the production of the iPhone 12 has been slowed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
