iphone 9 plus.....Why Apple has skipped Iphone 9...?


Since the release of the second-generation iPhone SE, one of the most common questions I’ve received is why Apple didn’t name it the iPhone 9. Many people think it’s strange that the number has been skipped altogether. This is Greg with Apple Explained, and I want to thank Anker for sponsoring this video. If you want to help decide which topics I cover in future videos, make sure you’re subscribed, and voting polls like this one will show up in your mobile activity feed. Alright now, let me give you a detailed explanation as to why Apple skipped the iPhone 9. Starting with a little bit of iPhone history. Because while many of you know about the iPhone X, you’ve been pronouncing its name wrong all these years. Although it is an X, Apple intended it to be pronounced as the roman numeral ten, rather than a letter of the alphabet. And this confusion is nothing new, when moving from Mac OS 9 to Mac OS 10, they also used the roman numeral ten in promotional materials. Which led to most people calling it Mac OSEX. But they decided to reuse the roman numeral ten with the iPhone, and again this caused the same sort of pronunciation issues as with mac OS X. But there was an extra layer of confusion with the iPhone since Apple didn’t release the device in sequential order. There was the iPhone 7, iPhone 8, and then an iPhone model with a letter in its name rather than a number. Something Apple has never done in the iPhone history. So I think it makes more sense to conclude that the X symbol is pronounced EX rather than ten. Because why would there be an iPhone 10 if there was no iPhone 9, and why would Apple uses a roman numeral to represent ten instead of the actual numbering they were doing in the past . The greatest issue was that Apple changed the name from the traditional Phone naming scheme which they were been using for years. And the question many of you are probably wondering is why? Well, I’m going to tell you exactly why. It’s because Apple prioritizes appealing marketing over-analytical reasoning. Why do they call their set-top box Apple TV? Even though people who hear that name for the first time assume it’s an actual television set made by Apple, rather than a box that connects to your existing TV. They gave that name since Apple TV sounds cool. whose example is as iPod and apple pencil, coz some people don't prefer them such as they would not be used to listen to music while using Ipods and the same the case is with a pencil but this logical disconnect, Apple still uses those names. And that's exactly what happened with the iPhone10.
 Now if you own an iPhone that’s been released starting with the 8, you have the ability to wirelessly charge your device with something like this Power Wave Pad and Power Wave Stand from Anker. What I love about the Pad is its sleep-friendly indicator that allows me to see the charging status of my iPhone without being super bright like the LEDs in some other products. It can also charge through my phone’s case so I don’t have to worry about removing it every night before charging. And Anker’s Power Wave Stand is perfect for watching movies and YouTube videos while charging since it not only props up my phone but it charges in portrait and landscape which is super convenient. Plus, Anker’s Power Wave Pad and Stand support full 7.5w charging on the iPhone and 10w charging on the Samsung Galaxy so you don’t have to sacrifice charging speed for the convince of charging wirelessly. So if you want to start enjoying the convenience of wireless charging, click the link in the description. Now by understanding that approach Apple takes to naming their products, it helps us understand why Apple was so eager to call their 2017smartphone the iPhone 10, and skipping the number 9 completely. First, it was the device’s tenth anniversary, the original iPhone was released in 2007, and so Apple felt the need to commemorate the occasion in 2017. Second, the iPhone 10 represented a completely new era in the device’s history. It was the most radical change ever made to the iPhone, and it would also be accompanied by a radical new price point of $1,000, up from the previous iPhone 7’s $650 price. So it’s safe to say that the iPhone 10’s release was anything but a routine update. And it was up to Apple to communicate the significance of the 2017 iPhone model’s release. That's exactly why they broke from tradition and named it the iPhone 10, bypassing the number 9. It’s also why they used the Roman numeral 10, even though Apple had never used a roman numeral for an iPhone before, and knowing it would likely be mispronounced EX. But those things were all irrelevant. Does it really matter if people call it the iPhone EX or the iPhone 10? Either way, it communicates the point that this iPhone is completely different from anything Apple has done before and is certainly not a routine update.
Whereas calling it the iPhone 9, Wouldn’t have been as effective in conveying that message. The apple moved from the iPhone8 to iPhone 10, and 11, people wanted them to use the name iPhone 9 at some point. This is why rumors of an iPhone 9 model circulated regularly near the end of 2019 and the beginning of 2020.the apple was working on low price new iPhone but we don't know that which is it. Many people thought it would be a new iPhone SE since it is rumored $400 price point would be the same as the SE model in 2016. But most people were referring to the budget model as the iPhone 9.  When Apple revealed it earlier this year, people were surprised that they named it iPhone SE. Suggesting that Apple should’ve filled the gap in the iPhone’s sequential history by calling it iPhone 9 instead. But those people failed to recognize what I described before. The fact is that Apple doesn’t restrict itself to logical reasoning when naming products. They care much more about effective and appealing marketing since that’s what sells products. And by calling their new $400 budget smartphone the iPhone SE actually makes much more sense from a marketing perspective. There was a lot of confusion about the newly released iPhone 9. First, it suggests that the model was released between the iPhone 8 and 10, which would already make it three years old in the minds of customers. When in reality, it’s a new device. Plus, Apple uses numbers for their more premium iPhone models. But the SE isn’t a premium device, it is a budget model intended to appeal to a completely different market than the iPhone 8, 10, or11. And if you’re really bothered by Apple skipping the iPhone 9, I’m about to make you even more uncomfortable just coz Apple has also missed other number in iPhone history. If you remember back to 2007, there was the original iPhone, and then the iPhone 3G, 3GS, and 4. There was never an iPhone 2, and technically there was never an iPhone 3 either since the 3G name came from the device is enabled to run on carrier’s faster 3G networks. Apple didn’t adopt sequential numeric names for the iPhone until the 4. The fact that the third-generation model was called the 3G S was really just a coincidence. Now we all know Apple didn’t backtrack and release an iPhone 2 just for the sake of filling that number gap, and the same will happen with the iPhone 9. It’ll just be another one of those interesting quirks in the history of the iPhone that’ll continue to be discussed and debated for years to come.
