Affected by force majeure, the iPhone 9 series originally planned to be launched in March was delayed. This is mainly due to Apple's production line problems that were most affected this time. Previously, some of the production capacity was insufficient, and now the core components are in short supply. According to the latest foreign media reports, Apple has resumed production of the iPhone 9 series, which is expected to be released as soon as the end of April.
According to foreign media reports, although Foxconn and other domestic foundries continue to restore production capacity, but now mainly affect the upstream supply chain. In other words, some core components have already started to be in short supply. If the situation does not improve in the future, then the release of the iPhone 9 series is likely to continue.
Perhaps this situation was expected. Before this, Apple also implemented a purchase restriction policy on products, that is, each person can only purchase two. From this we can see that Apple's overall production capacity has been seriously affected, I believe other mobile phone manufacturers are the same.
According to the news, Apple's upcoming iPhone9 series, including iPhone9 and iPhone9 Pro, is a new machine that will replace the iPhone8 series. It will be equipped with an A13 processor and will use lower pricing.
As for other aspects of the design, the iPhone 9 and iPhone 9 Plus both use LCD screens and retain Touch ID. In terms of screen size, the iPhone 9 will be 4.7 inches, and the iPhone 9 Plus will be 5.5 inches. The two will be almost identical in appearance to the current iPhone 8 series.
Since it is a new machine replacing the iPhone8 series, the price of the iPhone9 series is not expected to be too high. Some media predict that the iPhone9 will provide a starting price of 2800 yuan (USD $400) for a 3GB storage version, while the iPhone9 Pro will start at 3299 yuan (USD $471) . Right and left, with a good price / performance ratio, for some value-oriented users, the iPhone 9 series is a good choice.
