At the end of last week, Apple representatives confirmed that the new Apple smartphones will be released with a delay of several weeks. However, no specific dates were named. According to sources from the Taiwanese edition of DigiTimes, Apple may release new iPhones in two stages.
As the authors of the resource note, two 6.1-inch smartphones will be the first to reach store shelves – the iPhone 12 Max and the iPhone 12 Pro. The journalists came to this conclusion based on a series of leaks in the supply chain. As for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro Max, these devices may appear on sale in a few weeks after the 6.1-inch new products.
In general, this scenario is not new. Apple has done this in the past. For example, the iPhone X went on sale only a month and a half after the official presentation, while the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus could be bought just a couple of weeks after the announcement. A similar situation was with the iPhone XR, which appeared on store shelves much later than the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max.
In the past, information has appeared on the network that the new iPhones will not be on sale at the same time. According to the latest data, the first new items will be available on store shelves in mid-October.
