Anything that can affect the price of the underlying can also affect an option’s delta.

In practice then, we can see that the absolute delta of an out-the-money call or put is higher, other things being equal, the longer the time to expiration. For example, suppose the spot is trading $100 and the March $110 calls have a delta of say 25%. We would expect, other things being equal, that the April $110 calls will have a higher delta than 25%. May $110 calls a higher delta still etc.
