Broadcom, a company that manufactures and supplies components for Apple devices, has voiced expectations about financial results for the third quarter. The company’s top manager said that production cycles have shifted due to the general situation in the world and the third quarter will show weak results.
Bloomberg notes that amid earlier news of the iPhone 12 porting move, this confirms the later launch of new Apple smartphones. At the same time, a similar situation happened earlier, for example, in 2017, when iPhone smartphones went on sale a little later than usual.
Typically, Broadcom receives an order for components in July in order to have time to ensure supplies and the iPhone came out in the usual September. This time, the top manager of the company said, this will not happen.
Recall, it was previously reported that in July the start of production of two iPhones with the same diagonal of 6.1 inches is scheduled. One device will be the successor to the iPhone 11 Pro, that is, a smartphone with an OLED screen. And the other is something like the Max version of the new generation of the regular iPhone 11, which now has an IPS screen matrix.
