We are getting more and more news about the launch date of the iPhone 12 regularly. But honestly, we are tired of changing dates. Of course, we understand it’s mainly related to the epidemic. As you know, Apple orders most of the components to the Chinese, Taiwanese, and other south-Asian companies. But because of the closed borders and travel restrictions, Apple’s employees couldn’t meet their colleagues in the mentioned countries and failed the project to finish in time. However, everything changes according to the current situation. And though the launch of new Apple products are pushed back, they are not canceled. According to the latest news, Apple will release the new iPhone series in November this year. It includes four models. And they all support 5G networks.
