Apple to delay mass production of 2020 flagship iPhones: WSJ

Apple Inc (AAPL.O) is delaying the production ramp-up of its flagship iPhones coming later this year by about a month as the coronavirus pandemic has weakened global consumer demand and disrupted manufacturing across Asia, the Wall Street Journal reported here citing people familiar with the matter.
Apple is forging ahead with plans to release four new iPhone models later this year, the report added citing sources.
The new models will be enabled with 5G connectivity that promises low response times and faster internet.
The Nikkei had reported here in late March that Apple was preparing to possibly delay the launch of its first 5G iPhones.
The WSJ report on Monday added that Apple was slashing the number of handsets that it plans to make in the second half of this year by as much as 20%.
The company, which traditionally unveils new iPhones in September, released here a smaller iPhone priced at $399 earlier this month.
Apple did not immediately respond to Reuters’ request for comment.
