Apple Officially Confirms iPhone 12 Delay
“We expect supply to be available a few weeks later.”
Back in April, reports stated that Apple had to push back the mass production of the iPhone 12 due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Now, the tech giant has officially confirmed that the upcoming model will in fact be delayed from September until around early October. The company’s CFO Luca Maestri said in an official statement: “Last year we started selling new iPhones in late September, this year we expect supply to be available a few weeks later.”
Despite the delay, Apple has unveiled that it is currently working on new technology to keep its devices clean. According to Apple Insider, the company is working on developing sensors to create its own cleaning system. “They could deploy ozone, generated by ultraviolet light, to push away or even erode and decompose ‘unwanted organic compounds’ inside the device,” the publication stated.
