When will Apple hold its spring event in 2020?
What do we expect from Apple's upcoming 2020 spring event?
What will the iPhone 9 feature?
Rumors surrounding that one have have circulated for years under the iPhone SE 2. Naming aside, the iPhone 9 will fill in the last remaining omission in Apple's naming portfolio, which gave us the iPhone 8 and iPhone X, but no iPhone 9. Indeed, the iPhone 9 will be a stopgap between the iPhone 8 and the newer iPhones, combining the general looks of the former with hardware from the latter.
iPhone 9 specs:
- 4.7-inch 750 x 1334-pixel display
- Apple A13 Bionic chipset
- 3GB RAM
- 64GB storage
- 12MP camera
- 7MP front camera
- 1,700mAh battery
The iPhone will reportedly be powered by none other than the Apple A13 Bionic chipset, which is great news for the potential adopters of the phone as it means it will future-proof for the next couple of years to come. Some 3 or 4GB of RAM will probably on board, a decent improvement over the 1GB of RAM in the original iPhone SE, and while that might not sound like a lot, the flagship iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max do just fine with 4GB of RAM on board. As far as native storage is concerned, we are probably looking at 64GB and 128GB storage options, which should be sufficient when paired with any of Apple's cloud storage options.
How much will the iPhone 9 cost?
What will the new iPad offer?
Supposedly, there will be two versions of the tablet, one with a 12.9-inch display and another one with an 11-inch screen.
There's a triple camera setup rumored to be making the cut at the rear, matching the iPhone 11 Pro's wide, ultra-wide, and telephoto arsenal. Additionally, Aplpe could throw a microLED display that provides better luminance for less power and is extremely flexible when it comes to shaping a screen with rounded corners, notches, or whatever else you might need.

If you want to add 4G LTE modems to them, that'd be $949 for the 11-inch and $1149 for the 12.9-inch as starting points.
