Apple has been working on the iPhone 9 for a while now and the company has been aiming for a spring launch even though everyone is currently struggling with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Due to the ongoing health crisis, Apple was expected to delay the launch but it looks like the company might just go through with it after all. Jon Prosser of Front Page Tech has confirmed that Apple will be launching the budget-oriented iPhone 9 on April 15 with shipping starting on April 22. Earlier, he said that Apple plans to go ahead with the launch due to “economical pressures and shareholder obligations”. He did note that things might change seeing the current situation but if all goes according to plan then we will see a new iPhone from Apple later this month.
