Apple iPhone 9 Production To Start This Month



Apple iPhone 9 is one of the most anticipated smartphones this year. The upcoming handset is expected to be the company’s workhouse for developing markets which is dominated by Android smartphones. However, the recent Coronavirus outbreak could affect the plans of Apple. But a recent report claims that Apple has already given a go-ahead for the iPhone 9 production.

According to a report by MyDrivers, Apple has given an order of 30 million units for the upcoming iPhone 9. This is a huge amount for a new phone but it seems right considering the iPhone SE sold in high numbers. Apple wants to ensure that it has plenty of iPhone 9 in stock when it will launch. The production is said to begin in mid-February and if everything goes right the iPhone 9 may launch commercially in March.

Currently, many are speculating the iPhone 9 will be delayed because of the Coronavirus. Over the weekend, Apple already announced that all stores were temporarily shut in mainland China. But Apple has reportedly contacted manufacturers Foxconn and Wistron, both of which have plants in the Wuhan region, the epic centre of the virus outbreak for measures to cater to the production demand. So the iPhone 9 might hit the markets on time after all.

From the leaks and rumours, Apple iPhone 9 is expected to be a revamped iPhone 8 with upgraded specs. It is said to use the same body from the iPhone 8 with the 4.7-inch Retina display without the 3D touch. There will be a glass rear panel to aid wireless charging. It will be powered by the Apple A13 chipset from the iPhone 11 and will have 2GB RAM. Some rumours suggest that it will have the same 12MP camera from the iPhone 11 but with only one sensor and no wide-angle camera.
