iPhone 8 Release Date: New Report Says Apple Flagship Won't Make It This Year
The eagerly anticipated iPhone 8 will not make it to Apple's traditional September launch. This has been made pretty clear by the number of rumors that have surfaced for the past few months. However, a new report says the upcoming Apple flagship smartphone might completely miss the expected 2017 launch, which marks the 10th anniversary of the iPhone.
The possibility that the iPhone 8 or iPhone X or even the iPhone Edition will not come this year was arrived upon by Deutsch Bank after data gathered by its analysts from several supply chain reports pointed to a long delay for the iPhone 8. According to BGR, Deutsche Bank sent the research note to its investors on Sunday.
The primary reason for the possible delay revolves around a lack of supply of vital parts as well as some difficulty which arose from the use of OLED panels and other such technical issues. According to previous reports, the development of the iPhone 8 suffered a setback after the company realized that its Touch ID fingerprint sensor can't easily be integrated into the 5.8-inch OLED displays.
Business Insider reported that ValueWalk initially got the information from a source connected to Foxconn, one of Apple's partners. The source relayed that there is a lack of orders for the iPhone 8's packaging materials which basically indicates there are no iPhones to pack just yet.
If this proves true, it will certainly be a nightmarish scenario for Apple and its fans as well as everyone pining for the sentimentality of the 10th anniversary iPhone. As a consolation, ValueWalk also reported that the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus will still be released in 2017 as the packaging materials are scheduled to arrive in last week of June.
The upcoming iPhone 8 is expected to be one of the most impressive and advanced smartphones to come out of Apple's production line. Some of the possible features of the iPhone 8 aside from the OLED display and the Touch ID sensor include a dual camera set-up, wireless charging, and augmented reality capabilities.
