iPhone 8 Might Not Come This September
According to the latest iPhone rumors, Apple should release not one, not two, but three iPhones next fall. Two of them are going to be the successors of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, but the big surprise is the third one, which will be in fact a redesign, and its price might exceed the threshold of $1,000.
Most likely the last one will be the most interesting of them all, and Apple fans seem to be most curious about it. It is supposedly a special 10th anniversary iPhone that will have a great OLED screen, a fingerprint sensor which was redesigned and probably some more high tech features we can’t even think about right now.
However, apparently the device might see a delay in its release and not make it to the public in September. Several supply chain watchers have declared in the last weeks that they think the production process for the OLED iPhone will not be starting until September the earliest, which means that the top end iPhone 8 will not be available for sale then, as it was the tradition with new iPhone models for years in a row now.
Traditionally, Apple requires several months of production in order to cater to the demands for its new devices, which might be reaching millions in only one weekend. Ming-Chi Kuo, who is a famous Apple analyst, declared that they are running out of time to produce the device, that is, if they want to release it in September. Otherwise, any delay might push the release further away. There may also be the possibility that the company will indeed launch all three devices in September, but only make available the two iPhone 7 successors after that, thus forcing their customers to wait for the much anticipated iPhone 8.
