On September 13, 2017, Apple launched a new generation of iPhones at the Steve Jobs Conference center namely: iPhone8 series, iPhone X. When Cook announced the iPhone X, he said that the X in iPhone X is the correct way to write Roman numeral 10. But many users wonder that Apple’s mobile phone jumps directly from iPhone 8 to iPhone X. In 2018, there was no iPhone9, but the iPhone XS and iPhone XR. Why doesn’t Apple iPhone have iPhone9? In this post, we provide 4 reasons why no iPhone 9
4 reasons why no iPhone 9 Was Produced by Apple
In this section, I will be highlighting four relevant reasons why we do not have an iPhone 9 or 9 Plus from Apple. Everyone will agree with me on the first reason. What about the other reasons? let’s wait and see.
First of the 4 reasons why we don’t have an iPhone 9
Obviously, Apple’s second-generation mobile phone started with the iPhone 3G. After that, each mobile phone was named after adding 1 or s to the previous generation’s number. However, this practice changed when the iPhone 8 was produced. Apple’s mobile phone directly from the iPhone 8 Jump to iPhone X, why is the iPhone 9 missing?
First of all, there is no iPhone 9 mainly because 2017 is the 10th anniversary of the iPhone’s listing, so the launch of the iPhone X is a commemorative item for the tenth anniversary.
The second reason why Apple Ditched iPhone 9 and moved to iPhone X
Also, another very powerful reason for the move is because of the great superstition from the Western classical music industry. the ninth symphony curse(also known as the curse of the ninth). Beethoven, Bruckner, Schubert and other famous musicians all died after writing the ninth symphony. Since then, “9” seems to be a hurdle for musicians. Moreover, any attempt to cross this limit People did not end up with good results. So, Apple deliberately avoided the number “9”. Compare this to the number “4” in China. 4 is considered an unlucky number by the Chinese.
Third Reason why Apple Jumped from iPhone 8 to iPhone X
In all sincerity, it will be a great injustice to this post if I fail to mention this point. Another reason why there is no iPhone 9 is because of the competition between Apple and Samsung. If the iPhone in 2017 is named iPhone 8, then the iPhone launched in 2018 will be named iPhone 8s. Hence the number will lag behind rival Samsung. At that time, the Samsung flagship machine may be named GalaxyS9 and Note9, which may give consumers the illusion that Samsung surpassed Apple.
Fourth and Final Reason Why iPhone 9 is missing on the Brand of Apple iPhones
Finally, Apple’s mobile phone jumps directly from iPhone8 to iPhone X. The middle may be the iPhone XR instead of the iPhone 9 transition. Although iPhone 8 and iPhone X are released in the same year, the gap between the two phones is very large. The iPhone 8 uses an LCD screen on the screen, the pixel density of 326, the screen ratio is 16:9, and the iPhone X is replaced by an OLED screen, the resolution is increased to 2436*1125, the screen is also upgraded to a full screen. Also, the iPhone X is relatively more than the iPhone 8. The change is very obvious.
But the iPhone 8 is much more similar to the iPhone XR. The iPhone XR uses the same LCD screen as the iPhone 8, and the pixel density of 236ppi. The iPhone XR just replaces the iPhone 8 16:9 screen with a full screen. The comprehensive screen has more bangs design, so the iPhone XR looks more like the upgrade of the iPhone 8, and it is more like the replacement of the iPhone 9.

Conclusion on the 4 Reasons why there is no iPhone 9
The reason why Apple did not release the iPhone9 seems to be many reasons, but the most likely reason is that 2017 is just the 10th anniversary of Apple, deliberately launched iPhone X as a commemorative, but why Apple deliberately avoid the number “9” maybe There are some reasons that cannot be explained. In the future, it is very likely that I will never see the iPhone9 again.
