Apple has some bad news about the iPhone 12

From updated internals to the design of the device itself, various leaks and rumours have given us a pretty solid picture of the upcoming iPhone 12. One thing that that's less clear is its release date, with the coronavirus pandemic threatening the traditional September announcement. Now Apple itself has commented on the date – and it's not good news.

Luckily, it isn't terrible news either. In a call to investors, Apple revealed that the iPhone 12 should only arrive a few weeks later than normal. "Last year we started selling new iPhones in late September, Apple CFO Luca Maestri said. "This year we expect supply to be available a few weeks later." It seems the iPhone 11's spot on our best camera phones list is safe for a few weeks longer.
