According to a recent source, Apple’s next-generation smartphone will be postponed until 2023.
Unnamed sources may have indicated Friday that Apple’s unknown, the untested gadget has been unofficially postponed to an unspecified later date, and the price of the new device is slated to soar as well.
According to unnamed leakers regularly referenced in hazy technological news, Apple has been discreetly researching the hot new technology for many years. A slew of unsubstantiated and unverifiable reports back up the notion that Apple is heavily involved in the new technology, which uses buzzworthy nameless tech jargon to create a totally new class of gadgets — albeit precisely what it remains a mystery.
However, owing to unanticipated production issues, Apple will be unable to meet an undisclosed internal shipment target, forcing admirers of the nascent technology to wait.
“According to sources familiar with the matter, Apple Inc. is contemplating postponing the release of its hot new item by at least a few months, perhaps delaying its first major new product since the Apple Watch in 2015,” the article alleges. “This might postpone the announcement until the end of 2022, or later, with the product reaching stores by 2023, the individuals added,” according to the newspaper.
According to similar reports, supply chain concerns in China were affecting an unidentified supplier’s capacity to send components, further complicating the introduction of new technologies. The report’s author predicted that the cost of the next-generation tech item would rise by at least 10%, with no effect on sales.
“We feel there is still a huge market for this technology,” the analyst allegedly stated, anticipating 15 to 20 million copies sold in the first year alone.
When contacted for comment, an Apple spokesperson who declined to be identified on the record said he couldn’t confirm or deny the allegation. In the background, the unidentified official hinted that Apple is continually looking into new technologies, a claim he refused to corroborate and declined to expound on.
