Affected by the epidemic this year, many technology-related production lines have had to delay their shipment progress, which is why the outside world generally believes that the iPhone 12 launch date is late. According to a research report by well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, iPhone 13 will return to the past in terms of mass production time. In other words, the 2021 iPhone should be on sale in September.
With regard to iPhone 12, Ming-Chi Kuo said that customers' demand for the Pro version exceeded expectations. Among them, Pro Max also affected the shipment schedule due to the tight supply of wide-angle lenses. However, he stated that iPhone assembly will increase by 3 to 5 percentage points in the first quarter of 2021, which means that shipments will increase from 36 million units this year to 45 million units, which is a considerable increase.
