Apple iPhone 9 Launch Cancelled Over Coronavirus Concerns


According to the report, the company is forced by the rapid growth of coronavirus positive cases to postpone the launch event. The company has not mentioned any information on the release date of iPhone 9. The launch event was slated for March 31, 2020. However, the company has decided to cancel the event after it banned mass gatherings at Apple park which is located at Santa Clara.

The company has also recommended employees to take necessary measures and do work from home because of increasing cases of virus spread in the region.

Reports also suggest that the company might hold the launch event somewhere else or launch the devices via online press event. The new devices are expected to launch in the upcoming weeks but still, there is no clarity what the company is going to do.

Meanwhile, the launch of the iPhone 12 series also seems to be on stake. The launch event of Apple's flagship smartphone might also face a delay. Usually, Apple launches its latest iPhone series in September but it can be delayed to October or November.
