Earlier this year, we were expecting 2 separate iPhone release in the year 2020 i.e. iPhone 9 and iPhone 12. However, looking at current situation, we doubt apple will announce dates anytime soon.
iPhone 9’s launch is almost cancelled due to COVID-19 impact globally. Insider news is that, Apple’s top management is giving this issue a serious thought and may delay the event by a month’s time.
Very likely, there are two explanations behind this conceivable postponement. Apple’s creation plan for the iPhone 12 has been enduring since the beginning of the episode, since such a large amount of the organization’s creation happens in Asia; later, when COVID spread to Europe and the US, it constrained Apple representatives to telecommute and in any event one case close down an office for profound cleaning.
Second obvious reason is, due to COVID-19, people have drained their energy financially, mentally and physically. “Apple is concerned that the current situation would significantly lower consumer appetite to upgrade their phones,” said Nikkei’s source, “which could lead to a tame reception of the first 5G iPhone.“
Sources state that Apple hasn’t chose at this point whether the iPhone 12 ought to be postponed, or assuming this is the case, for to what extent. Be that as it may, the organization plans to settle on a choice in May “at the most recent”, when the long haul impacts of COVID-19 ought to be more clear. A deferral until 2021 is right now saw as a most dire outcome imaginable, however it is conceivable.
