As usual, Foxconn needs as many hands on deck as possible at its factory in Zhengzhou, China to assist with mass production of the upcoming iPhones. Apple is widely expected to announce four ‌iPhone 12‌ models this year, including a 5.4-inch model, two 6.1-inch models, and a 6.7-inch model, all with OLED displays and 5G connectivity.

While new iPhones usually begin shipping in late September, Apple recently indicated that supply will be available "a few weeks later" this year.

"In addition, as you know, last year, we started selling new iPhones in late September. This year, we project supply to be available a few weeks later," said Apple CFO Luca Maestri on the company's July 31 earnings call.

For everything we expect from the ‌iPhone 12‌ lineup, read our in-depth roundup.

Hey, Foxconn

I am thinking of getting the 5.4” sized iPhone in blue. Please put one aside for me for release day and let Apple know which stack is mine. And if anyone else ask for the same kind of favor, tell them you don’t do favors like this.

Kind Regards,

Sweet. Get my iPhone 12 Pro Max in blue ASAP. The 11 Pro Max has gotten boring. I had to get a second phone (OnePlus 8 Pro) on a new line just to keep myself entertained until Fall. lol.
