Apple may delay the launch of iPhone 12 series by at least two months. The smartphones under the upcoming iPhone series are now expected to arrive in the month of November instead of the traditional mid-September timeline.

According to a report by investment bank Cowen, the iPhone 12 family of products will launch around Q4 2020.

A report by the Wall Street Journal in April said that Apple Inc is pushing back the production ramp-up of iPhones scheduled to be launched later this year by about a month due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
