According tomedia reports, analysts said the 5G version of the iPhone, Apple’s most important product in years, was “never going to be possible” in September. Dan Ives, an analyst at investment bank Wedbush, said the much-anticipated release of the new 5G iPhone smartphone could be delayed until December, given persistent supply chain problems and disruptions to Apple’s normal planning and design process.

He believes there is only a 10 to 15 per cent chance that the 5G version of the iPhone will be available in September, as originally planned.
Mr Eavis’s prediction coincides with previous reports in the Nikkei Asia Review. Apple is considering delaying the launch of the 5G version of the iPhone because of declining global demand for smartphones and supply chain barriers, the report said.
‘Apple’s first 5G version of the iPhone has only one chance, and if consumer demand is poor, it will be a disaster and will have a significant impact on Apple, ‘ Mr. Eavis wrote in the study. Therefore, their choice of the launch time of the flagship product will certainly be considered again and again, and be careful.
