Apple is planning to ship between 75 and 80 million 5G iPhones this year, according to a new Bloomberg report. The figure is in line with or slightly higher than iPhone launch shipments for the last couple of years, suggesting that Apple doesn’t expect the coronavirus pandemic to dampen demand — even though the company has already said the phones will be delayed into October.
Bloomberg’s report also contains a broad roundup of what Apple is said to be planning for its fall hardware announcements. Here’s what Mark Gurman and Debby Wu expect:
A new Apple TV with an updated processor and new remote control is also said to be in the works, although it might not be ready this year. Finally, Bloomberg expects Apple to make iOS 14 available in September, despite the delayed iPhone releases.
