Apple will hold a press conference at 1:00 a.m. Beijing time on September 16, according to Apple’s official website on the evening of September 8. According to a number of media reports, no surprise, Apple will release a new iPhone — the iPhone 12 with 5g support is expected to appear. < / P > < p > industry insiders have analyzed to the Sino Singapore Jingwei client that apple is likely to release the new 5g iPhone at that time, but whether it can guarantee sufficient supply on time remains to be verified. In addition, the new iPhone in the Chinese market or will face strong resistance from domestic mobile phones. < p > < p > Apple’s annual new product launch in autumn attracts much attention because, according to the Convention, Apple will launch new iPhone products in autumn. < / P > < p > affected by the new crown epidemic, Apple’s new product launch on September 16 will still be held in the form of online live broadcast just like WWDC 2020, and the online conference will still be held in Apple park. The iPhone 12 is expected to be released along with other products, including the new iPad, apple watch 6 and airtags, which consumers have been looking forward to. < / P > < p > as usual, the iPhone 12 series will carry the latest A14 chip. However, it is not known whether the iPhone 12 series supports 5g network. It has been reported that the new iPhones all support 5g network, of which the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Max only support FR1 band, while the two pro level products only support millimeter wave. < p > < p > due to the impact of the epidemic, whether Apple can release the new iPhone on schedule this autumn has been a question mark. Now, with the release of the new iPhone, whether it can be delivered on time has become a new focus of market attention. < / P > < p > in fact, Apple has taken some “unconventional operations” to ensure that the new iPhone will be released as scheduled under the epidemic. For example, through online video calls, guiding Chinese colleagues in assembling prototypes of new mobile phones, and allowing hardware engineers to bring home prototypes of unpublished new phones. < / P > < p > according to the latest news from the upstream industry chain quoted by the media, Apple has completed the final design of the iPhone 12. If there is no problem after the simple trial production and verification, it will start large-scale mass production. As the new machine contains four models, the development and sales work this year will be effectively staggered. For example, the first one to sell is the iPhone The cheap version of 12 will be delivered at the end of October. It is understood that this year, the largest stock of iPhone 12 is 75-80 million. < p > < p > SUN Yanbiao, President of the first mobile phone industry research institute, analyzed the client side of Sino Singapore Jingwei. It is likely that Apple will release the new 5g iPhone at that time, but whether it can guarantee the supply of the new 5g iPhone on time remains to be verified. “In the history of Apple’s new product release, there have been cases in which one or two products can be launched as scheduled, but other new products with innovative configuration have to be delayed. I think Apple will adopt a time phased approach to sell new products to make up for the lack of capacity. ” Sun Yanbiao said. < / P > < p > if the 5g iPhone will be launched in October, more than a year has passed since the first 5g mobile phone made in China was launched. On August 5, 2019, ZTE axon 10 Pro 5g, the first 5g mobile phone on sale in China, was officially launched. < / P > < p > according to the latest data released by ICT, from January to July 2020, the total number of 5g mobile phones shipped in the domestic market was 77.508 million, and 119 new models were listed, accounting for 44.2% of the total number of mobile phones shipped in the same period and 46.5% of the number of new mobile phones on the market in the same period. < / P > < p > this means that China’s 5g mobile phone market has entered a mature period to some extent. This maturity is also reflected in the price system. At present, domestic 5g mobile phones have covered all price levels of high, middle and low end, and the 1500 yuan price range has already been realized. So, what situation will 5g iPhone face when it enters the Chinese market? Sun Yanbiao analyzed that, from the perspective of the global market, especially the European market, due to well-known reasons, the release of 5g iPhone at this time will make apple face less pressure from Huawei. But in fact, in the next three months, whether in Europe or the United States, it is more likely to continue to be under the shadow of the epidemic, so we don’t have to pay much attention to the overseas competition pattern of 5g iPhone. Sun Yanbiao said that in terms of domestic market, Chinese mobile phone users have been educated by domestic 5g mobile phones for more than a year. However, at the same time, it should be noted that 5g mobile phones have not brought more new functions and new experiences, and the overall price is high, resulting in some inventory. The release of the iPhone 12 will help boost the iPhone’s market share in China. < / P > < p > “however, the release of domestic 5g mobile phones has a time advantage. In fact, a considerable number of users have transferred from Apple camp to Android camp. On the other hand, Chinese users have a high pursuit for the appearance design of mobile phones, such as the off screen camera technology developed by domestic mobile phone manufacturers. Relatively speaking, the iPhone is more about innovation in applications. It is still uncertain how different the new iPhone functions are. If the differentiation is not reflected, it is not good news for the iPhone 12 to seize the market. ” Sun Yanbiao said. Fu Liang, an independent Telecom analyst, said in an interview with China Singapore Jingwei client that it is not too late for apple to release 5g iPhone at this time, considering the global development of 5g. But specific to the Chinese market, at present, domestic 5g mobile phones have covered all prices, and various mobile phone manufacturers have begun to target the 5g mobile phone market below 1000 yuan. This shows that China’s domestic 5g mobile phone market has been relatively mature, leaving less and less space for 5g iPhone. < / P > < p > “the competition in China’s mobile phone market is fierce. At present, we need to observe how much investment Apple will make and whether it will reduce the price in exchange for sales.” Fu Liang said. Skip to content
