Apple reportedly delaying production of its 2020 iPhones
Apple is reportedly delaying production of this year's crop of iPhones, as the coronavirus pandemic continues to wreak havoc on businesses around the world.
According to The Wall Street Journal, Apple will push back production of its 2020 iPhones by about a month.
Citing "people familiar with its plans," the report says Apple plans to release four new iPhones this year, including some models that support 5G.
The phones will be available in three sizes, 5.4 inches, two models at 6.1 inches, and a model at 6.7 inches, the report says.
Apple's most recent models include the iPhone 11 with a 6.1-inch touchscreen, the iPhone 11 Pro with a 5.8-inch screen, and the iPhone 11 Pro Max with a 6.5-inch screen.
Last week, the tech giant unveiled a budget version of its smartphone, the iPhone SE. While the phone resembles an iPhone 8 in appearance, it will feature a processor similar to the iPhone 11.
Typically, Apple announces its latest smartphones in September, then releases the models weeks later. In June, the company provides a tease to its next operating system through its annual Worldwide Developers Conference.
Last month, Apple said it was shifting WWDC to an "online format" due to the spreading coronavirus pandemic.
