Don't Wait If You Can't Wait Until September or Later
If you're in need of an upgrade in the near future you should have your eyes on the current crop of phones.
Apple's final release window is the fall window and that's where you can expect the 2020 iPhone models to drop.
According to Bloomberg's Mark Gurman, the 5G iPhones are still on track for the fall and that's partly because mass production of the devices won't begin until the summer.
Gurman says that Apple typically finalizes "the majority of design features for new iPhones" between November and December, begins mass-producing new casings in and around April, and then starts a late manufacturing stage called Final Assembly, Test and Pack around May.
As of right now, all signs still point to a launch in September or October due to supply chain issues related to the coronavirus outbreak.
If you don't think you can sit through a few more months of rumors and/or you phone isn't going to last that long, you'll want to move onto something else.
