Prosser concurs though brings a twist: “Regardless of what you’ve listened elsewhere, we will not be removing it in September, iPhone 12 is delayed. We’re going to be removing it in October… [but] instead of carrying announcements in Sep and afterwards it comes out in October, it looks like they’ll fire for all of it function in October.”
05/20 Update: Jon Prosser has updated me today, observant that it isn’t nonetheless a impact asperse that Apple will get each iPhone 12 indication on sale for October. He states that Apple is “hopeful” of a operation all rising simultaneously, though it is not nonetheless guaranteed.

That said, pattern a landslide of member leaks from now on as Apple continues to ramp adult manufacturing.
With a difference of a iPhone X (November), each iPhone given a iPhone 5S has left on sale in October. For Apple to strike that aim again with a world’s biggest-selling smartphone and many formidable supply sequence during this many disrupted of years would be remarkable.
