Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) flagged a potential delay in the launch of the iPhone 12, the next iteration of its flagship product, in its earnings call. New rumors suggest Apple may be straying away from its usual practice of launching all models together.
Apple To Go In Phases? Cupertino is gearing up for launching the different models of iPhone 12 in two stages, according to Digitimes.
Two 6.1-inch models could be rolled out first, followed by the 6.7-inch and 5.4-inch models, Digitimes reported, citing sources. The early launch of the smallest size models is premised on the commencement of shipments of substrate-like PCB mainboards for these models by suppliers.
The 6.7-inch iPhone and one of the 6.1-inch models will be higher-end iPhones, boasting triple-lens cameras, according to MacRumors. The other 6.1-inch model and the 5.4-inch model will be lower-end phones, carrying an affordable price tag.
5G enabled Phones All the four models will be 5G-enabled phones, MacRumors said, citing analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
These models, however, are unlikely to have wired EarPods in the box, the analyst said. Such a move is intended to cut down on the cost of the iPhone and also to perk up demand for AirPods.
Apple shares traded up 0.8% to $439.19 at the time of publication.
