Apple is laying the groundwork to possibly delay the launch of its next generation iPhone due to the coronavirus outbreak, reports Nikkei Asian Review.
Three sources tell that the site that Apple has held internal discussions about possibly delaying the launch by months. It was originally scheduled for September.
"Supply chain constraint aside, Apple is concerned that the current situation would significantly lower consumer appetite to upgrade their phones, which could lead to a tame reception of the first 5G iPhone," said a source with direct knowledge of the discussion. "They need the first 5G iPhone to be a hit."
