What happened to the iPhone 9?

  What happened to the iPhone 9? Apple announced its iPhone X. It’s the new flagship iPhone that will be released in November, weeks after the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus go on sale on September 23rd. Apple says you’re supposed to pronounce the iPhone X as “iPhone ten,” and it’s designed to mark 10 years of the iPhone. While the iPhone 8 is an iPhone 7S in all but name, the number jump across all the new iPhone models means we’re now officially missing an iPhone 9.Apple’s typical S naming is gone for this year at least, which isn’t entirely surprising.

Since CNET posted the iPhone 5 story this weekend… … the iPhone 5 is a “complete redesign. This is a very large project that Steve dedicated all of his time to. He was not that involved in the 4S because his time was limited.”. …we thought it would be a good time to tell you what our sources think

What happened to the iPhone 9 ? When Apple unveiled the iPhone 8 and the iPhone X (pronounced iPhone ten) scores of fans were quick to spot a missing number.

Apple’s typical S naming is gone for this year at least, which isn’t entirely surprising. Samsung launched its Galaxy S8 earlier this year, and the company’s Note 8 will be available on September 15th (the same day iPhone 8 preorders begin). Going up against the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 with an iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus doesn’t really make as much sense this time around. Instead, Apple appears to be using a great marketing trick for this year’s iPhones.

4 reasons to choose the iPhone 8 over the iPhone X

  4 reasons to choose the iPhone 8 over the iPhone X As excited as I was about the iPhone X heading into the Apple event today, I walked away conflicted. There is no question that the iPhone X is one of the most fascinating phones the company has ever released, but its faults are significant and difficult to ignore. Below, I’ve come up with four compelling arguments for why, if you are dead set on upgrading your phone this year, you should choose the iPhone 8 instead.1.

What happened to the iPhone 9 ? Discussion in 'The Vestibule' started by SteelersFreak1, Sep 12, 2017 at 6:51 PM. it does? hasn't it just been the iphone 7 and 8? lol.

The iPhone X naming helps position the device above the regular iPhone 8 without explicitly labeling it “iPhone 10,” because most people are simply going to call it the iPhone X and not pronounce it as iPhone ten. Apple knows this, and the company only uses the X logo in its promotional materials. Jony Ive says “iPhone ten” in the company’s keynote video, but I’d be surprised if we hear Apple explicitly call it the iPhone ten on a regular basis.

This subtle difference makes it clear it’s a special edition iPhone, and not an iPhone 10 that’s going to make people think they’re not getting the latest iPhone if they go for the iPhone 8. Let’s face it, the iPhone X is the device people will want, but most will go for the iPhone 8 simply because the X is priced so high.

The iPhone 8 back glass is more expensive to fix than the screen

  The iPhone 8 back glass is more expensive to fix than the screen The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus' most obvious design change is the switch to a glossy, glass back. There was a chance this glass would be priced at or around the same price as a cracked screen under AppleCare+, but that's apparently not the case: AppleInsider confirmed today that a broken back won't qualify for a $29 screen replacement. It'll instead be subject to an "other damage" fee of $99 (plus tax). Apple gives users two screen replacements and two miscellaneous damage incidents at the $29 and $99 price respectively.

Replying to @tomwarren. Same thing that happened to Windows 9 . iPhone 9 and 9 plus are scheduled for next year and then Apple will completely switch their iPhone line to X generation.

The company skipped iPhone 9 . What happens to iPhone 9 ? According to The Verge, this is a well-thought strategy. As Samsung launched Galaxy S8, it was logical that Apple comes with iPhone 8. iPhone 7S or iPhone 7S Plus does not make much sense.

Microsoft did a similar trick for its Windows 10 naming. The software giant skipped Windows 9 and went straight to Windows 10, but Microsoft did this primarily to encourage Windows 7 users to upgrade. Looking at your PC and seeing Windows 7 when there’s a Windows 10 version out makes it seem all that much older, and it’s a marketing trick that helped promote free upgrades.

Apple’s subtle trick does mean that next year’s iPhone names are going to get really interesting. Will we see the iPhone 8S, an iPhone 9, or an iPhone XS? Let the guessing games begin.

iPhone Upgrade Program customers can now trade in phones through the mail .
Apple seems to be making it easier to trade in iPhones through the iPhone Upgrade Program with a new mail-in kit option, as spotted by John Angarano over at the MacRumors forums. Apple launched the iPhone Upgrade Program two years ago alongside the iPhone 6S as an alternative for customers looking to upgrade their phone without being tied to any one carrier. But if you were looking to upgrade your phone to a new model, you had to schedule an appointment in an Apple Store to trade in the old phone, something that seems to finally be changing with the new mail-in kit.
