Apple may have delayed the launch of its low-cost iPhone SE 2 but the company is still looking to roll out its 5G iPhones. Apple is all set to launch three new flagship iPhones this fall and with 5G support on all models.
Apple’s schedule of launching its 5G iPhones hasn’t changed as yet, as per a report by Bloomberg. However, this is essentially due to the fact that production of the iPhones has not yet started. Production for the flagship iPhones are said to begin in May which is still over a month away.
However, due to the coronavirus outbreak, Apple is facing major production delays. Its main supplier Foxconn has started production in China with normal operations expected to start by end of this month. Apple was also forced to shut down all stores outside China till March 27. It has also limited online purchasing of iPhones to two units per person which means that customers will not be able to purchase two of the same iPhone models at once.
The company was also forced to cancel the launch of iPhone SE 2/ iPhone 9 which was supposed to take place this month. However, it did not roll out the new iPad Pro models and a MacBook Air earlier this week.
Now as far as the update for the flagship iPhone series is concerned, Apple would release them this September going by the company’s annual schedule. Three new iPhones are expected and all of them will come with 5G support.
This lineup could also feature iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. Apple is also expected to refresh the design on these iPhones aside from performance upgrades.
