We almost saw it a few days ago, and although it didn’t finally happen everything still looks like we’re looking at an imminent iPhone 9 launch Several online stores are preparing for this, including the Chinese website JD.com which has placed an ‘iPhone 9’ covered with a red canvas in the pre-sale.

Jon Prosser’s technology youtuber too has discovered that the US Verizon website mentions iPhone 9 in its device renewal section:

This is in addition to other mentions of the terminal in AppleCare warranties, at the official store, and even in iOS betas. Some people are betting on a release next weekBut I would not be surprised if we received the press release just this week, seeing the pace at which everything is developing.
As for the launch date, it all depends on how logistically prepared Apple is. The vast majority of Apple stores remain closed due to the COVID pandemic.19, so most of the purchases will have to be online with the exception of China.
