Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From 9to5mac.com: “iPhone 12 delay could see two-stage launch - 9to5Mac”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Apple last week confirmed reports of an iPhone 12 delay that will go on sale ‘a few weeks later’ than the usual late-September timeframe. A supply-chain report claims to offer a little more detail, suggesting that the new models will go on sale in two stages.

That idea is of course not without precedent. We first saw it in 2017, with the iPhone X being announced in September but not going on sale in November, and again the following year when the iPhone XR was announced in September and wasn’t available until October …

Today’s Digitimes report opens by noting that thus will see production of iPhone 12 components peak in the final quarter of the year. These would normally peak in Q3 as Apple builds up supply of the new models ahead of the September launch.

Taiwan’s PCB makers in the supply chain for Apple devices will see their shipments for new iPhones not peak until the fourth quarter this year as Apple has confirmed its iPhone 12 lineup will debut later than normally scheduled in September.

Apple may launch its 5G iPhones in two stages, with two 6.1-inch models in the first and another two 6.7- and 5.4-inch devices in the second, the sources said, adding that suppliers of SLP (substrate-like PCB) mainboards for the former models have recently kicked off shipments, with those for the latter to start in late August.
