The iPhone 8 will be three years old in the fall. A cheap successor model iPhone 9 was already expected by many in March 2020. However, the outbreak of the coronavirus may have been in the way of publication. Pieces of code from iOS 14 now provide new information.
The website “9to5mac” has published new information about Apple products, which you can find in the leaked code of the iOS 14 operating system. The cracked data has already revealed new features of the upcoming Apple Watch Series 6. Now the site operators have apparently come across information about a new iPhone 9, which is also to be launched in a plus version.
Rumors have been circulating for a long time about the release of an iPhone 9. According to “9to5mac”, hardware information has already leaked through the supply chain. However, deeper knowledge could only be gained by analyzing the code pieces.
Display and Hardware
The evaluations showed that the old iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus should be replaced by two new models. It is planned to bring the successors onto the market at a low cost in order to also attract newcomers as customers. The company builds on a combination of new and old elements. The smartphone should have a 4.7-inch LCD display in the standard version and a 5.5-inch LCD display in plus format.
In addition, the installation of a fixed home button is planned. Instead of using Face ID, the screen will probably be unlocked using Touch ID. An “A13 Bionic Chip” is to serve as the processor, which is also used in the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro. In addition, the new smartphone will be able to do some things that older models cannot do.
For example, the iPhone 9 should be able to scan NFC tags in the background. According to the website, “Techbook” one would be able to perform certain automation with the device. This includes dimming lights or playing music. The final name of the next iPhone is currently still open. So far, the only speculation about the designation iPhone 9. However, it is very obvious since the new release is to replace the iPhone 8.
However, the iPhone 9 could also come onto the market as an iPhone SE 2. The release date has also not yet been determined. The website “9to5mac” considers a simultaneous release with the operating system update iOS 13.4 possible. The price for the standard variant will probably be between 450 and 500 euros ($481 to $535).
