I know you all thought apple skipped the production of the iPhone 9 when they launched the iPhone X but nope they didn’t, they just saved it for 2020 special but then, the coronavirus came up and caused a delay in the launch of the designed iPhone 9.
iPhone 9 will also be known as the iPhone SE 2 and it was scheduled to be in mass production by the end of February but it is now shifted/postponed to be launched in March at an event by apple. iPhone 9 or iPhone SE 2 is said to be apple’s budget device and according to a report, the outbreak of the Wuhan virus will affect the apple’s business from January to march In such a way that there will be limited or no global supply of iPhone and it will also affect it sales in china where is it being assembled.
According to a representative of apple Inc.,
“Work is starting to resume around the country, but we are experiencing a slower return to normal conditions than we had anticipated. As a result, we do not expect to meet the revenue guidance we provided for the March quarter due to two main factors,” the company said in a statement.
While our iPhone manufacturing partner sites are located outside the Hubei province — and while all of these facilities have reopened — they are ramping up more slowly than we had anticipated,” said the company.”
