Apple CFO Luca Maestri confirmed Thursday that the release of the new models of ’
iPhone, originally scheduled for September, was postponed. Many specialists had been counting on such a delay for some time. The supply and logistics problems generated by the health crisis linked to the coronavirus have indeed disrupted the production of the devices.
“Last year we started shipping iPhones at the end of September. This year, we expect the stock to be available a few weeks later, ”said the executive during a conference call with investors, relayed by The Verge.
Still unknown versions
Luca Maestri did not say if the entire stock will go on sale at a later date or if a limited quantity of the long-awaited smartphones will be released before the others. It's also possible that Apple will choose to unveil its new iPhones to the public in September, as the brand does every year, even though the phones aren't going to be sold until later.
The versions of the iPhone 12 are not officially known yet.
BFM TV indicates, however, that there are rumors of four different models having in common that they are compatible with the 5G network. In addition to modernized versions of the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max, a more compact terminal with a 5.4-inch screen could complete the future range.
