Apple Forgets About 'iPhone 7' And Focuses On 'iPhone 8'?
When Apple officially released the iPhone 7 back in September, there was an intense debate on whether it was worth buying or waiting until the iPhone 8, a potentially much better overall upgrade. Well, according to several reports on Thursday, Apple may have determined that there are enough customers who are definitely playing the long game.
