After months of rumors about who will follow the iPhone SE, there is no space left: IPhone 9 is at hand. Iminent, of course, to the point that we saw a few hours ago a case of this model on Best Buy. The question that many (all, perhaps?) Have wondered about is the ease and usefulness of introducing a new iPhone in the midst of a global epidemic.
IPhone 9 in the midst of a never-before-seen health and economic crisis
We live in special times. History is being built as the hours pass by days of hard imprisonment and personal tragedy. And in between there are the tech companies. Apple has taken several steps to continue its mission to protect employees and suppliers, adapting to the right conditions such as liquids.
From the closure of the body shops, to the telephone, it passes additional hygiene and safety measures in important positions. Without forgetting the website and app dedicated to COVID-19 discovery.
With the new product launch in China, stock time and delivery have improved dramatically. However, all over the world things are very different. With Europe bound and North America following its wake, its two major markets are seeing their economic activity reduced significantly.
Translation: the recession will change into a crisis there many companies will close and unemployment will increase. According to Deutsche Bank, reported by the Financial Times:
Economists at Deutsche Bank estimate that the eurozone is on track to suffer a 11.4% contract deficit in GDP in the second quarter of 2020.
Germany will lose 12.2%, France 14.8%, United Kingdom 15.1%, Italy 16.3% and Spain Spain 20.1%, in the second quarter of 2020. And that the epidemic is spreading all over the world. So the question arises as to whether it would be easier to introduce the iPhone 9 within this context.
The iPhone 9 and the world will never stop
Despite all our suffering, those who suffer the most, the world continues to circulate. In the case of Apple, its users continue to use apps and services, as well needs correction for your products
Clearly, Apple users still want to partner with the company in some way. Launch the iPhone in the middle of this panorama It can be seen as a bad or mad decision. But the company is already facing a similar situation with the 2008 financial crisis and knows how to get ahead.
If we trust the rumors, The iPhone 9 will be based on the iPhone 8 but with the essential elements of the present. The A13 Bionic processor, combined with a better camera and more upgrades would make it an ideal candidate for the "low cost" iPhone (depending on Apple's price). Which means, it's not an entirely new iPhone. The offer is to get used to the price it contains.
Some manufacturers have decided to follow in their plans despite the global epidemic. Once the iPhone 9 is ready, this shouldn't be a problem for the company
For the electronic products of a particular building, it makes sense that you want to go to the store to try it out. But with movement and trade ban measures, this is impossible. However, since it is a repository with known appearance, this should not be a major obstacle when it comes to marketing.
Some competitors, however, have not released their footing from the accelerator. Samsung unveiled its Galaxy S20 last month, amid the first expansion of the virus. Just five days ago, Huawei introduced its P40 Pro range. And some smaller manufacturers like Realme continue to produce models.
Of course, the introduction of the iPhone 9 at coronavirus times is entirely possible. In addition, we can imagine bringing a certain spirit of normalcy. Large companies, if they can, should follow in their plans as much as possible.
