Apple considers delaying 5G iPhone 12 beyond planned September launch : apple
There are going to be provide points.
There are going to be distribution points.
There shall be no financial system.
That stated, I believe one of many 2 actual causes to delay launch could be if they do not wish to affect distribution of important items… for which they won’t have a selection (relying on nation/state).
Otherwise, if distribution is not a life-concern, then they may as effectively launch understanding that whereas provide shall be weak, demand shall be weak as effectively. Launch it, and let there be no matter backorder there’s (if any).
The different cause to delay could be if part provide was provide was so dangerous that they could not even produce any inventory.
