The United States showed no signs of improvement in the fight against the epidemic, which also forced Apple to change the way it developed new products(iPhone 12). In the end, they did not want to delay the release of the iPhone 12.
According to foreign media reports, in order to prevent the launch of the iPhone 12, which is scheduled to be released this fall, the Apple engineering team in the United States uses video calls and other methods to instruct Chinese prototype builders. This is also the first time Apple has allowed employees to take a prototype home.
Due to the advent of the new coronavirus, travel bans and homework requirements have prevented Apple engineers from traveling to China and can only do the above work online. In addition, Apple works with Chinese partners in other ways, including sending photos back and forth.
What bothers Apple executives is that Apple’s supply chain partners are used to playing a supporting role for their team of engineers from the United States. Online communications, including photos of unpublished devices, could lead to early leaks of this year’s products.
Travel and home restrictions have also affected Apple’s work in the United States, as many engineers do not have access to the 3D printers and milling machines at Apple Orchard, which is needed for prototyping.
Earlier today, foreign media reported that trial production of the new iPhone this year is expected to begin in June. Foxconn acknowledged to investors that the company suffered setbacks due to isolation and ongoing international travel restrictions, but still believes it can easily make up for a lost time.
Foxconn’s head of investor relations, Alex Yang, told a private conference call hosted by Goldman Sachs that Foxconn was still able to meet the deadline with months to go before the first test assembly line that began in June.
Apple uses all resources to launch iPhone 12 in September
According to recent foreign media reports, Apple has used all the resources that can be mobilized by the industry chain to ensure iPhone 12 is ready to launch, and Foxconn also ensures that this does not delay Apple’s time.
The trial production of this year’s new iPhone is expected to begin in June. Foxconn acknowledged to investors that the company suffered from setbacks due to isolation and ongoing international travel restrictions, but still believes that this can easily make up for a lost time. Head of Foxconn Investor Relations Alex Yang said at a private conference call hosted by Goldman Sachs that Foxconn could still meet deadlines several months before the first test assembly line, which began in June.
The report mentions that the iPhone 12 series has been one of Apple’s most important products over the years, and is expected to be able to take full advantage of the 5G network, as well as watch videos and play games more smoothly. Apple lagged behind Samsung and Huawei in 5G, which began selling 5G equipment last year.
The iPhone 12 series is expected to consist of four iPhone models. The latest report shows that all four new models will use OLED screens, and Apple is changing the screen size. Apple is expected to release a 5.4-inch, two 6.1-inch and a new 6.7-inch iPhone 12. The current iPhone 11 Pro Max has a 6.5-inch screen.
These new models are expected to use a redesigned chassis with a square-edged chassis that differs from the curved design of the iPhone 6 and later and, to some extent, the industrial design of the iPhone 5.
At the same time, the iPhone 12 will include improved cameras and support for the new 5G mobile networks. Higher-quality 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch models will feature lidar scanners similar to the new iPad Pro.
As for the selling price, which excites everyone, they say that this year the price of the iPhone 12 will be very high. The starting price is 5,000 yuan, and the most expensive is more than 15,000 yuan. Thus, Apple hopes to enrich users as much as possible.
