In the morning news of June 17, according to foreign media AppleInsider, investment bank Wedbush analysts predicted that Apple‘s 5G iPhone 12 will be released as scheduled in September. Wedbush analyst Daniel Ives said that in early 2020, the epidemic had a great impact on production, but Apple’s supply chain has been normalized in advance. The renormalization of production also gave Apple the ability to successfully release the 5G iPhone 12 in September.
Although there have been reports that the iPhone 12 will be launched in a similar way to the iPhone X, Daniel is still optimistic that Apple will launch the iPhone 12 in September and ship it in early October. This is consistent with the time when Apple usually releases the iPhone.
Consistent with previous rumors about Phone 12, Daniel expects Apple to launch four iPhone models, and the full range of products will be compatible with 4G and 5G. Despite supporting 5G, at least one of the devices may cost less than $1,000. 5G iPhones may have US and non-US versions, only some models will have faster millimeter wave (mmWave) 5G support.
Daniel believes that 5G has no technical obstacles for Apple, so the release of the 5G iPhone in September is logical. At present, about 350 million of the 950 million iPhones in the world are in the upgrade window, and the introduction of some low-cost models may promote the upgrade of these old users.
For the upcoming WWDC2020, the analyst expects Apple to show the iOS 14 operating system at WWDC 2020, and announced that it will switch from Intel to the Mac processor based on the ARM architecture. AR glasses or other wearable devices may also have news.
