Apple admits the iPhone 12 release is running late, but it now looks like the wait will be longer than the company suggested.

This news comes from 2020’s breakout Apple insider Jon Prosser, who states the iPhone 12 launch event may be as much as a month late, with pre-orders and shipping delayed for iPhone 12 Pro models until November. If correct (and Prosser has a 100% release record this year), it would expose Apple CFO Luca Maestri’s recent comments that the new iPhones are running “a few weeks later [than usual]” as overly optimistic.

For context, Apple has announced, opened pre-orders and shipped 14 of its last 15 iPhones in September and pre-orders have historically opened a week before the phones go on sale. In no scenario does “a few weeks later” translate to shipments sometime in November. Except maybe one.

Prosser says sales of the entry-level iPhone 12 and (newly renamed) iPhone 12 Plus will begin in mid October (pre-orders week 42, shipping week 43). Consequently, Maestri may have been attempting to ease concerns by referring to only half the new range.
