Apple iPhone 12 Production Might Be Delayed Due To The Coronavirus Outbreak

As stated by a former employee of Apple, the situation could be bad if things do not go according to plan this year for the production of the iPhone 12

Around this time of the year, Apple engineers and executives are visiting China and suppliers in the country are preparing to manufacture new iPhones. However, this year, as the Coronavirus outbreak has led to travel restrictions, Apple’s plan might be delayed.

The production of new iPhones will not start until the summer but the first few months of the year are crucial for Apple’s engineers to perfect the process with partners like Foxconn.

According to a former employee of Apple, the situation could be bad for the iPhone maker if things do not go according to plan this year for the production of the iPhone 12.

People who have insight into the process of Apple said that the company geared up to work after Lunar New Year. February is the time for the late stage of prototyping when Foxconn assembles some sample devices.

According to Reuters, if Apple could not finalize the chip and component orders before production starts, we might have to face with a late new iPhone introduction.

Experts said that Apple still has time to keep everything on the right track but the travel restriction might make things difficult for the iPhone maker.

Apple’s suppliers, including Foxconn, are up and running but they have not yet reached their full capacity due to labor shortage, quarantine, and travel restriction. Foxconn’s high ranking officials are still working remotely from Taipei.

Airlines like United have also suspended flights to China until the 24th of April. Those who travel to the country are all subjected to health checks before they can return to the States.

Apple has already told its investors that it would not be able to meet the 2020 first quarter’s revenue goals due to the Coronavirus outbreak. During April earning calls, the iPhone maker will share more information on the impact of the pandemic on its sales.
