Apple hardware teams learning new ways for upcoming devices

However, this new HomePod is supposed to be less expensive than the original model.

As secretive as Apple is about new products, it's no surprise that we've seen an avalanche of reports in recent days on whether or not the flagship iPhone 2020 will be delayed. "Signs are that Apple's Chinese-centric manufacturing - of which Hon Hai [Foxconn] is the linchpin - is slowly getting back on track". However, let us remind you that the iPhone manufacturer Foxconn had to postpone the re-opening of the iPhone assembly facility because strict quarantine measures were in force. It looks like Apple has been planning to launch a host of new hardware even as most of the company's employees are working from home. In a nutshell, Apple's capacity to innovate and work on new products may be somewhat stunted, but it hasn't been stifled.

The report is compatible with another report published by Bloomberg, which claims that Apple's launch date still remains valid. He also claimed that the device would have the top-end 6.7-inch display with the fresh new image stabilization technology seeing the actual image sensor move slightly compared to previous devices. There have been discussions as to whether the current situation may cause iPhone production to delay several months.

With Apple iPhone 12 still being some months away from an official launch (considering Apple is going to stick to the usual September launch window for new iPhones), there is no stopping the rumours and speculations on the device that has been streaming in more frequently off late.

In the third report, published later on 28 March, it was said that it is still possible to produce new generation 5G phones as planned in autumn.

While iPhone 12 may be secure, that doesn't mean Apple and other major players in the electronics industry will be spared the effects of the coronavirus. The patent submission that Apple made with the US Patent and Trademark Office is about an "Electronic device display with extended active area".
