This year 2020 with the health crisis linked to the Covid-19 pandemic will have disturbed everyone. Even the tech giants have been impacted, it has been felt in their schedules, especially for Apple’s iPhone 12.
The Covid-19 pandemic has forced governments to take numerous restrictive measures to protect their populations. In particular, this made travel abroad very complicated, if not impossible. A situation which logically led to difficulties in keeping the deadlines of the projects of the large multinationals. And that’s one of the reasons why the iPhone 12 was released so late in the year. What about the iPhone 13 ?
According to Ming-Chi Kuo, the launch of the iPhone 13
Due to the pandemic, travel restrictions have been put in place around the world in an attempt to contain the spread of the virus as much as possible. As a result, it had become very difficult to accomplish certain tasks. Apple for example very often sends its engineers to China so that they can test the prototypes and that everything works correctly. It was no longer possible.
It is for this reason that the iPhone 12 was launched later than usual but these delays should not occur in 2021. At least, this is the new prediction made by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. The man, who often gets it right when it comes to the Apple ecosystem, says the Cupertino company shouldn’t have the same concerns with the iPhone 13 as it does with the iPhone 12.
can be done in September / October 2021
Ming-Chi Kuo therefore claims that, therefore, it is more than likely that the iPhone 13 will revert to a launch window around September or October, a period to which the general public is more accustomed. That being said, it also means that the iPhone 12 will have less time to exist before the next generation hits the market.
The apple brand usually starts mass production during the summer, but due to the pandemic this year, production could not start until September. Which is why some iPhone 12 models were released later than others. Hopefully everything will be back to normal for the iPhone 13.
