Puerto Rico has been under a lockdown since October 1 after the island’s governor declared a state of emergency over the outbreak.
In the meantime, the iPhone 7 has become a flashpoint for Puerto Ricans who have been asking for a new model, and for Apple to release a new one.
There’s one major difference between the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 6s and iPhone 7, however.
Puerto Rico will not be getting a new iPhone model this year, but there is a possibility that one could be released in the near future, according to TechRadars report.
AppleInsider has reached out to Apple for comment.
