[gearbest News] the sudden outbreak exceeded many people's expectations and disrupted the new plane release plans of many manufacturers. Due to the impact of the epidemic, MWC 2020 announced that it was cancelled, and many mobile phone manufacturers will choose a machine to release a new one.

According to the industry, Apple has been testing (POC), for iPhone 12 prototype design since June 2019 and is expected to complete the second phase of testing and enter EVT in early February 2020. However, because of the epidemic, it has not moved on to the next stage. And this year, as the factories can not fully resume work, it is bound to affect the original development process of Apple's new machine. However, the report said that even if the development and production of the new machine is delayed, Apple will not necessarily change the way it has released new phones in September in recent years.

According to industry analysis, Apple's iPhone supply chain is complete and mature. Recently, Apple has been constantly investigating the situation of the supply chain and trying to adjust it to minimize the impact. However, from the POC to the EVT phase, Apple must send employees to the plant to check in person, because the epidemic is still at its peak. In order to avoid the spread of the epidemic, Apple employees will suspend their travel to mainland China and delay the development schedule that they were supposed to push forward.

According to the further analysis of the industry, unless the inventory of the new machine is lower than expected, Apple, as a veteran of "hunger marketing," even if the development time is delayed, the chance of releasing the new machine as scheduled is still very high. "
