Every year, the launch of new iPhones by Apple is one of the big events in Tech World, but this time iPhone 12 may take a while to come in the market. Several reports were revealed that said that Apple could postpone the launch event this year due to delays in iPhone production. Now it has been confirmed by the company itself that the iPhone 12 series will arrive late this year.
Apple confirmed during the earnings announcement of the third quarter of 2020 that the new iPhones would be available a few weeks later than the normal schedule of each year. However, what was the reason for doing this, nothing was said from the company. “Last year we started selling new iPhones in late September, this year we are expecting the supply to be available a few weeks later,” Apple CFO Maestri said during the Earnings call.

Qualcomm, which gave Apple a 5G processor for the new iPhone, said a day earlier that 'a global flagship phone launch could be postponed' as one of the reasons is the decline in earnings projects for the fourth quarter of the year. Every year the company launches its flagship iPhones in September and sales start shortly thereafter. The company has confirmed that the sale will start late but the devices can be launched only in September.
5G connectivity in new series
Apple has done this many times before, when the phones have come to the market for several weeks after launch. The company brought the iPhone X to the market in November, while the iPhone XR sale started in October, while both devices were launched in September. Many leaks involving the new iPhone 12 lineup have surfaced in the past and all new devices will be launched with 5G connectivity.

This year, Apple may launch four new iPhone models with 5G connectivity and an LTE variant of the iPhone 12 will also be launched.
