Yufei.com, March 23rd, due to the impact of the new crown pneumonia epidemic, the iPhone 9, which was originally planned to be launched in March, will be delayed again. According to the latest news, Apple’s entry-level mobile phone has now entered the mass production stage and is expected to be released in mid-April.
The news also pointed out that Apple has also reached a new cooperation with China’s BYD OEM to speed up the production of products. But it is still unknown which products BYD will manufacture for Apple.
It is understood that the iPhone 9 and iPhone 9 Plus will offer Touch ID instead of Face ID. Users will be able to use Apple Pay and Express Transit features, which are not available on some older iPhones. The new models will also be able to scan NFC tags in the background, which was previously present on the iPhone XR, iPhone XS and iPhone 11, but not on the iPhone 8 or iPhone X.
Previous iOS 14 code leaked a lot of information about the iPhone 9/Plus, which will feature a 4.7-inch LCD Display and a “Home” button with built-in Touch ID. It seems that Apple is also working on a larger version of the iPhone 9, which may be named the iPhone 9 Plus.
Evidence suggests that both will be powered by the A13 Bionic chip, the same processor used in the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro. The iPhone 9/Plus will have a physical Home button, which was introduced with the iPhone 7 and remains on the iPhone 8 phones. This means that the Home button doesn’t actually press, as it uses the Taptic Engine to simulate clicks and reduces hardware glitches.
