Apple has now confirmed that the launch of its next-generation iPhone — most likely the iPhone 12 — will be delayed from September until at least October.

The news was announced by the company’s CFO Luca Maestri, who said in an earnings call with investors that “Last year we started selling new iPhones in late September, this year we expect supply to be available a few weeks later.” Maestri didn’t provide any more details regarding why they’re delaying the device’s release, but there have already been months of speculation and rumors that a delay was imminent. The Wall Street Journal reported earlier that the tech giant may be delaying its iPhone release by a month due to the coronavirus affecting manufacturing across Asia, while Qualcomm also suggested a potential delay during an interview with Reuters citing a “partial impact from the delay of a global 5G flagship phone launch” in its projections for the fourth quarter of 2020.

Despite confirming delays, there’s still no official date from Apple as to when its next generation of iPhones will be unveiled or released, so those interested should stay tuned for more updates to come.

Elsewhere in tech, Microsoft is continuing talks to acquire TikTok after consulting Trump.
