Apple Might Launch The 6.1-Inch iPhone 12 And iPhone 12 Pro Before Other Models

With Apple having already said that it won’t get its iPhone 12 lineup out the door during its normal September release window, all eyes are on the company to see what it does do this year.

One possible plan could be to launch some of the four new iPhones we expect at different times. A new DigiTimes report claims that is exactly what Apple has planned.

If DigiTimes is to be believed – and that is far from a given – Apple will launch its 6.1-inch iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro first, with the other size options arriving at a later date.

The new ‌iPhone‌ lineup may arrive 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, said the sources, noting that shipments of SLP mainboards for the 6.1-inch models were kicked off in July and those for the 6.7- and 5.4-inch ones began in the second half of August.

We’ve heard from elsewhere that a staggered launch could be in the cards for 2020, most notably from Bloomberg. It’s also a method that Apple has used before – iPhone XR and iPhone X being two examples.

Ultimately we’ll know within weeks. Apple is said to be set to announce the event that will see the new iPhones shown off for the first time. It’s only a matter of a short wait now, folks!
