What effect does the arrival of another iPhone have on ASO, and in what capacity will this postpone sway applications and their improvement?
The current year’s new iPhone declaration, apparently for the iPhone 12, will be pushed back until October, or even November. During Apple’s Q3 profit call, Apple CFO Luca Maestri expressed:
“As you probably are aware, a year ago we began selling iPhones in late September. This year, we anticipate that flexibly should be accessible half a month later.”
While “half a month later” is an obscure range, it tells us that Apple is anticipating reporting new gadgets, yet they won’t be discharged around the typical time.
