Even if the iPhone 9 has reached the final verification phase before the final production, some delays in the delivery of the components could force Apple to postpone its launch in the second quarter of the year.
As reported by DigiTimes in these hours, Apple would have decided to postpone the launch of the iPhone 9 (or iPhone SE 2) from the first to the second quarter of the year due to the lack of some PCB components. The manufacturers of flexible PCG and logic cards based in Taiwan are in fact experiencing problems in complying with Apple’s orders, precisely because of the coronavirus epidemic.
Until now, most sources have talked about a launch of this cheap iPhone scheduled for March 31, but apparently Apple may decide to postpone the launch for a few weeks, just to ensure a good availability of pieces.
The device is expected to cost $ 399 in the United States.
