tech2 News Staff

Due to the ongoing pandemic, it was expected that Apple might not be able to launch this year's iPhone series in September, as every year. While the company has kept mum on the subject, a new report has suggested that we might see the iPhone 5G lineup right on time as manufacturing facilities have now reopened since the coronavirus led lockdown.

As reported by Bloomberg, Apple's Taiwan based manufacturer, Hon Hai Precision Industry Co Ltd or Foxconn, has clarified that though there were disruptions due to the Coronavirus outbreak, like travel restrictions and factories shut down, there are still a few months left to the first trial assembly lines start-up in June, Foxconn can still make it to the deadline.
