Earlier reports had revealed that Apple might push the iPhone 12 launch to October. Latest leak claims that Apple might further delay the iPhone 12 Pro launch. The company is reportedly facing issues with 120Hz display supply chain and is considering cancelling the feature.
Display Analyst Ross Young explains how Apple is able to procure 120Hz Pro displays. However, the company is facing issues procuring 120Hz display driver ICs. There are only two possible ways of addressing this issue. Apple will have to launch iPhone 12 Pro with 60Hz display or delay the launch and include 120Hz screen.
Young claims that Apple’s plan to use 120Hz panels on the iPhone 12 Pro was a last moment change. Due to this, they are facing issues implementing the high-refresh-rate display on the upcoming iPhone 12 Pro. In other words, we might see a delayed iPhone 12 Pro launch. Young adds “its not a simple issue in this case.” Perhaps Apple doesn’t want to lose out on customers who wish to have a 120Hz display on the iPhone 12 Pro.
Hearing that Apple can get 120Hz Pro panels, but not 120Hz driver ICs. So they will either have to come up with a fix which will be difficult, wait for 120Hz driver ICs and delay the launch possibly significantly or launch with 60Hz. We are hearing they will launch with 60Hz.

In his earlier reports, Jon Presser has revealed that Apple is divided on the implementation of 120Hz display on iPhone 12 Pro. The tipster’s latest video talks about how Apple is testing “120Hz, ProMotion,” for iPhone 12 Pro. According to the source, the 120Hz display works fine on iPhone 12 Pro Max with a manual display setting toggle.
