A senior Apple partner has recently declared that the giant Cupertino might not deliver its products according to their desired schedule, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Hock Tan, the Broadcom CEO, has warned the company’s investors that a “large North American customer” may face a cycle delay. Moreover, he has used this name for defining Apple some time ago; therefore, the information is closely linked to the manufacturer.
He has declared that the corporation would have normally faced a double-digit sequential uplift in revenue during the third quarter of the year, but now it is not the case. In addition to this, under normal circumstances, Apple would have normally launched its product at the end of September, but current speculations suggest that the launch event will most likely be postponed to November this year.
This information does not come as a surprise, as most of the companies have faced a series of difficulties during the ongoing social distancing world. Not only the supply chain has been affected, but also the key staff was resigned from traveling, management being as well impacted.
Fortunately, the pandemic does not affect the quality of the products that will soon be provided. The development of 5G technology is still going on, and even though the production has slowed a little, things are starting to get back on track. Therefore, a delayed introduction will not harm that much of Apple’s markets.
According to rumors, the iPhone 12 series will come with three variants of screen size: 5.4 inches, 6.1 inches, or 6.7 inches, as well as an OLED display. In addition to this, the phone will be powered by the first A-series Apple-designed chipset, which aims to enlarge the battery expectancy and maximize performance.
More information is yet to be revealed, and the forthcoming Apple product shows promising results since fans are eagerly awaiting its launch.
