The company wants to test assembly lines for any problems. If everything goes well, the assembly of serial iPhone 9 will begin in mid-February. Thus, Apple will have about six weeks to produce the first batch of smartphones.
Presumably, Apple is going to release 30 million iPhone 9. But it is possible that the spread of coronavirus will lead to production problems and Apple will face a shortage of devices.
The iPhone 9 will look similar to the iPhone 8. It will get a 4.7-inch screen, an A13 processor and one camera. [ Phone Arena ]
