The fall is a busy time for phone makers as Apple, Samsung, and Google often launch new units a few months earlier than the holiday season hits. The coronavirus pandemic put these plans in question, as the many links in the manufacturing, assembly, and delivery supply chain have been considerably hit. Apple appears poised to recover quickly and might be able to ship its next iPhone 12 sometime in September.
If any phone company has the leadership to deal with this disaster, it’s Apple. While Steve Jobs was often called an innovator and creator, his successor Tim Cook previously led Apple’s tight supply chains and established Apple’s industry-leading distribution effectivity. Phones launching in the fall time ought to have been finalized and ready for manufacture by the early summer, so it’s spectacular to see reports in late June that Apple has managed to surmount the disaster that has been disrupting work for 4 months.
Rumors point to four separate iPhone models or SKUs, and the next iPhone will feature 5G technology. Only iPhones out there on U.S. carriers will get the 5G networking, currently available only on Verizon. That is sensible because the rollout of mmWave networks has been very sluggish and extremely localized to crowded areas. Apple has been cautious up to now about adopting new network technology. The iPhone jumped onto 4G LTE networks after most other major manufacturer flagships have been providing LTE support; Samsung bought LTE-capable Galaxy units for nearly a year earlier than Apple’s iPhone supported the network.
Wedbush predicts a surge for Apple pushed along by “5G tailwinds.” Ives sees pent-up demand for an iPhone improvement, and most of that demand will come from China. The Chinese market may account for 20% of the subsequent round of iPhone upgrade customers. The firm at the moment has a market cap worth of $1.5 trillion, and it might be on track to turn out to be the first-ever $2 trillion firm in 2021.
There is not any date set for new Apple bulletins, and Apple often holds events in early September, after Samsung announces its fall lineup of Galaxy Note and Galaxy Fold devices.
