Apple should launch the iPhone 15 series in September. The Apple iPhone 15 Pro Max will be the first Apple smartphone with a periscope camera. According to an analyst, this feature could now cause a delay. According to rumors, Sony is unable to make the sensors available in time. The issues are likely to delay iPhone 15 Pro Max shipments by up to four weeks, according to 9to5Mac, which cites a “major equity analyst” as the source for the information.
The Apple iPhone 15 series announcement should happen on September 13th. Pre-orders will start on September 15 and deliveries should start seven days later according to schedule. With the expected delay of three to four weeks, Apple iPhone 15 Pro Max shipments could now be pushed back to between October 6th and 13th.
Production delays are nothing new for Apple. The iPhone Xr arrived later than the iPhone Xs due to late shipments of components to Pegatron. The same thing happened two years later when the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max gave way to the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro.
There have already been reports that display shipments are behind schedule. OLED makers LG and BOE are said to be unable to keep up with the demands. As a result, Apple allegedly had to shift production to Samsung Display. There hasn’t been any news in the past few weeks that suggests Apple has come up with a solution to this problem.
