However, whether it will be called iPhone 9 or iPhone 11 or iPhone XI or iPhone X is still not clear. Irrespective of the fact what new iPhone will be called, it seems very much obvious that iPhone 9 release date will be in the month of September only.

The September month is the best time for the company to announce new iPhone because once it is announced in September, it becomes available for the customers in next few weeks worldwide. The last two months of the year are very good for most of the company in terms of sales as the people make purchases for Christmas and New Year. It is also noticed that Apple sells the most units of iPhone during this quarter only.

iPhone 9 specification:

There are always a lot of key features that have been leaked out, and some of them are listed here!


The iPhone 9 seems to be having 5.8-inches display that with bazel-less design will give customers significantly bigger space on the screen. The rumors also indicate that iPhone 9 may feature OLED display just like iPhone X.


According to the news that has come out, the iSight technology is just going to improve camera bit more. In fact it is heard that the iPhone 9 will come out with a 16 MP primary camera. It might get dual lens primary as well secondary camera. Apart from that, the auto focus mode of the camera will allow for taking faster shots.

The camera will also feature a pro mode which will be a lot more helpful to get the best pictures. The secondary dual lens camera will be of 16 MP as well with an on-screen flash.

Operating System & CPU

As far the the operating system is concern, we have seen every new number iPhone gets the latest operating system. So the iPhone 9 will most probably be running iOS 12 that will be announced well before iPhone 9!. Talking about CPU, it can have hexa-core processor coupled with A12 chipset and Apple GPU.

RAM and Storage

The company seems to be ditching 64 GB model and the iPhone 9 might only have two version of 128 GB and 256 GB storage.  As far as the RAM is concern, iPhone 9 can get upto 4 GB RAM to further improve processing speed.


It is one of the most concerned issue of every smartphone because smartphone isn’t used only to make and receive calls. It is used for lot of other things as well such as sending emails, surfing internet, apps, games, reminder etc and all these things consumes battery power. According to the rumors, iPhone 9 may get 3,800 mA Li-ion battery.

Some of the apps required you to continuously connected with the internet and it results in faster drainage of battery. To address this concern (this isn’t a problem because the smartphone is used heavily), the company may come up with innovative design wherein the can fix two high power batteries. It may resolve this problem to much extend.

However the faster charging feature will get your iPhone 9 charged within minutes. The iPhone 9 also rumored to get long distance wireless charging.

The key specifications will include a lot of changes as expected from the previous versions. Apple will go completely wire-less and will include the Airpods and also the wireless chargers. Apart from this, the available storage spaces will start from the 128GB model.

Dual SIM card feature might be included in iPhone 9 that will give you flexibility to use two different mobile numbers with a single iPhone.

The other feature we are expecting from Apple is further improved SIRI, Dual lens camera with better optical zoom and much quicker charging.

iPhone 9 will get wireless charging feature just like iPhone X. However the rumors also suggest it can get long distance wireless charging feature that can charge your phone from 15 meter distance.

Apple iPhone 9 will be IP68 certified to protect your costlier phone from water as well as dust. IP68 standards allows your phone to bear water upto 30 mins if submerged in 1 meter water.

The iPhone 9 seems to have lots of interesting features such as 3D face ID, OLED Display, Long distance wireless charging etc that makes iPhone 9 bit costlier than its predecessor.
