According to a piece of information released by Jon Prosser the know Apple-leaker, iPhone 9 might come to us really soon. During a meeting that Apple had yesterday, Apple have decided on the announcement and shipping dates of the long-awaited phone.
Prosser says that Apple has decided that April 15th will be the iPhone 9 announcement date. Following this, the iPhone 9 will begin shipping on April 22nd, which is one week following the rumored announcement date.
However, Prosser does note that the world is in the middle of a pandemic, and this information is, of course, susceptible to change. He also mentions that Apple will be sending iMacs to employees to select retail employees at home to help with the launch of the phone, and in order to provide customer support and assistance.
The iPhone 9 is rumored to be very similar in design to the iPhone 8, however, it will be getting an internal upgrade from the A11 Bionic chip to the A13 Bionic chip, currently used inside the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro.
The pricing on this upcoming iPhone is rumored to be around $399 and is set to be targeted at iPhone 6 and iPhone SE users.
