Netease technology news, Feb. 14 news, according to foreign media reports, as the new coronavirus epidemic continues to spread, the impact of this virus on the global technology industry is more and more obvious. Just yesterday, GSMA cancelled this year's MWC 2020 conference in Barcelona. John Hoffman, chief executive of GSMA, said the new coronavirus epidemic prevented this year's MWC conference from continuing.
In addition, the new coronavirus outbreak could have an impact on Apple's highly-anticipated iPhone 12. Last week it was reported that the outbreak of the new corona virus had prompted apple to stop sending engineers to china for engineering validation tests (evt). Generally speaking, engineering validation testing is a process after the design validation testing of the product (design validation testing (dvt)), which starts when apple determines the exact design and functionality of the iphone that is scheduled to ship to consumers.
As a result, there are some reports that the release date of the iPhone 12 may be slightly delayed due to delays in various production processes.
However, a recent report in Taiwan's Electronic Times said the impact of the new coronavirus epidemic on iPhone 12 production and release dates may not be as serious as originally thought. In particular, Apple plans to launch the iPhone 12 at a special event in September, and consumers will be able to buy the device shortly after its launch, the report said. While the availability of the iPhone 12 may still be limited at the time of launch, it seems unlikely that it will be fully delayed. (Liu Chun)
