The iPhone 12 will be unveiled in September, but will only be available for purchase in October: this is the latest forecast by Wedbush, one of the financial advisory companies that follows product events more closely, and often with a good degree of precision. of the Apple. Colleagues from 9to5Mac who shared the note issued to investors, however, note that it is not specified whether some models will arrive earlier than others, as has often been hypothesized in recent weeks.
A bit all those who observe the consumer electronics market closely agree that probably this year the iPhone 12 (or whatever they will be called) will arrive a little later than usual: it is true that indiscretions of this type tend to be cyclical, but this year they are particularly plausible due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the problems that caused the related quarantines. Factories were forced to shut down for several weeks, and flight restrictions prevented employee movement for in-person checks at the production site.

However, everyone proposed their own theory about more precise times and ways – naturally based on their own sources. In some cases it is thought that the two "smooth" 12 iPhones will arrive on time, while the two Pro models towards October, November or even the end of the year; in others, only the 12 Pro Max may be late; in others all of them; in others none, but the availability will be very limited. The same uncertainty is found in relation to the keynote date.
Wedbush's voice is authoritative, but in this complicated period it is very difficult to blindly trust this type of indiscretions. Also because what is true today may not be true in a week, or a month: the COVID-19 pandemic is far from resolved – in fact, in some key countries such as the United States itself it is getting worse, with new records of contagion that occurs practically on a daily basis.
