Apple Reportedly Ready To Begin iPhone 12 Mass Production In July
If all goes well Apple will launch its iPhone 12 lineup in September or, more likely, October. And now a new report by DigiTimes claims that Apple will be ready to mass produce its new iPhones next month.
The report has Apple set to complete its “Engineering Validation and Testing” or EVT stage of production at the end of June, lining it up for production next month.
The way the text is worded would also suggest that Apple intends to begin production of all of its iPhone 12 devices, not just some.
Whether that means that all four expected iPhone 12 models will ship at the same time isn’t yet clear, however. We’ve seen some reports lately that suggest we will see a staggered release, with some iPhones ready for launch ahead of the others. In that scenario it’s likely the iPhone 12 will launch in September with the iPhone 12 Pro having to wait a few weeks.
Apple has done something similar before. The iPhone X was announced alongside the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus but didn’t reach stores until a few weeks after the launch.
Apple is expected to announce two iPhone 12 and two iPhone 12 Pro models this year with screen sizes ranging from 5.4 inches all the way to a massive 6.7 inches.
