Apple is reportedly delaying mass production of its upcoming iPhone 12 handsets by around a month. The Wall Street Journal reports that the impact of the coronavirus pandemic across supply chains and manufacturing has disrupted Apple’s iPhone 12 mass production plans. Rumors suggest Apple will introduce four new iPhone models later this year, all with 5.4-, 6.1-, or 6.7-inch OLED screens.
Apple typically unveils its annual iPhone refresh in September and begins shipping devices before the end of the month. The iPhone maker is able to do this thanks to mass manufacturing over the summer months, allowing the company to quickly ship devices to retailers after the handsets are officially unveiled.
