If you're holding out to get your hands on the latest iPhone, you're going to have to wait a little longer.

Last year, new iPhones started selling in late September, but the tech giant announced last week the latest iPhones will be shipped slightly later than usual this year.

That is due to a disruption in global supply chains thanks to the coronavirus.


Meanwhile, the company announced blockbuster third-quarter earnings amid the pandemic. Apple posted revenue of nearly 60 billion dollars in the three months, ending in June.

That's a 12% increase from the same period last year.
