iPhone X was revolutionary for many reasons, including its name itself. It is worth remembering that the X is, in fact, a 10, which means that Apple skipped over iPhone 9. Well, it appears that the company is willing to go back and release the missing iPhone 9 this year.

The upcoming Apple phone is definitely a reason for excitement, and there are numerous rumors flying around. Since we have to wait until official details will be released, we can take a look at the reports and leaks we have so far.


Obviously, most users want to know what this product can do, and the company has to come with some upgrades for every phone. When it comes to iPhone 9, we might expect a performance bump, as the phone is supposed to come with a custom manufactured processor.

Since the last chip used by Apple was way faster than the one before it, we can only expect one that works even better, and we should receive the Apple A12 Bionic chip for the upcoming iPhone.

The display might be a bit different as well, and it is believed that we will receive one of the biggest screens yet, a 6.1-inch one. The display should also touch all the edges of the phone.

Release date

Since Apple tends to release all the iPhones in the same period, it is not hard to guess when the iPhone 9 will come out. Usually, the company announces a new iPhone in September, and we can even guess the day, as Apple appears to prefer to unveil them on a Wednesday or a Tuesday.

The phone should hit the stores a bit later, probably around the middle of September. In 2018 it is very likely that the date will be September 12.
