Qualcomm is the latest source to hint at an iPhone 12 delay in a call to investors yesterday.
As reported by Reuters:
The news reflects a recent report from leaker Jon Prosser suggesting that the iPhone 12 is delayed:
We would usually expect an iPhone launch to take place in September, however, this year has seen consistent reports that final decisions regarding prototyping and design have been delayed by COVID-19 disruption to Apple's supply chain and travel. It is possible that Apple could still unveil the phone at an event (likely online or remote) in September, but that the launch of the phone itself for pre-order and customer purchase might be delayed until October. There is of course the option that the event itself is delayed until October, which means we may have to wait even longer for the new device.
Prosser reported as early as March 23 that the iPhone was way behind schedule, and that we should expect it in either October or November.
