Taiwan-based suppliers are ramping up production of new low-cost iPhones, which are now temporarily called iPhone SE2 or iPhone 9, DigiTimes reported. While the low-cost iPhone may be on track, DIGITIMES reports that Apple has stopped sending engineers to China to assist in the engineering validation testing or EVT phase of the iPhone's development.

So DIGITIMES quoted unnamed industry sources as saying,IPhoneThe 12 model is unlikely to be put into production in June. But it may change depending on the situation.
There are rumours that the iPhone 12 product lineup will include four new models, including a 5.4-inch model, two 6.1-inch models and a 6.7-inch model, each of which may be equipped with a faster A14 chip designed by apple. DIGITIMES expects A14 chip orders to be 50-60% higher than A13 chip orders.
