As you know, Apple launched its new iPhone 12 on October 14, 2020 during an unprecedented Keynote. For now, only the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro have arrived on the market on October 23, 2020. The iPhone 12 mini and 12 Pro Max will be available on November 13 in France.

In fact, Apple announced on November 6 the opening of pre-orders for the iPhone 12 mini and the iPhone 12 Pro Max. Like Sony with the PS5 and Microsoft with the Xbox Series X, Apple will launch its new generation of iPhone in a complicated context, in the midst of a health crisis.

The iPhone 11, XR and SE to the rescue

The effects are already being felt, since the production of the iPhone 12 Pro is significantly slowed down, due to a significant shortage of computer chips. Indeed, the design of a smartphone compatible with the 5G network generally requires 30 to 40% more fleas compared to a phone confined to 4G.

In fact, Apple may find itself in shortage of iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max during the holiday season. A catastrophic problem, when we know that operators are preparing for a sales volume never seen since the iPhone 6. To avoid a shortage during the holiday season, Apple intends to use components of the iPad Pro to continue production of the iPhone 12 Pro.

And according to our colleagues from the Gizchina site, Apple would also have another backup plan. In the event of a shortage of iPhone 12 and iPad Pro, the Apple brand intends to highlight its previous models, such as the iPhone XR, the iPhone SE or even the iPhone 11. Thus, the Cupertino company has ordered for more than 20 million smartphones of previous generations.

As with all iPhone 12s, the iPhone XR, iPhone SE and iPhone 11 will be delivered without a charger and without headphones. Note that Apple does not intend to offer iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max, their production having already been stopped. In fact, if you absolutely want a high-end model, you will have to achieve the return of the iPhone 12 Pro to the various resellers.
