Tech glitches may de­lay iPhone 8

China Daily (USA) - - BUSINESS -

Tech­no­log­i­cal prob­lem might force Ap­ple to de­lay the re­lease of its next flag­ship smart­phone — iPhone 8, US news net­work the CNBC cited a re­port from Bank of Amer­ica as say­ing. The re­port, writ­ten by Bank of Amer­ica Mer­rill Lynch’s two an­a­lysts, said the iPhone 8 “will ship 3-4 weeks de­layed given tech­no­log­i­cal is­sues which Ap­ple and its sup­pli­ers are work­ing through”. The ob­ser­va­tion, ac­cord­ing to the CNBC, was made af­ter the two an­a­lysts’ re­cent vis­its to Ap­ple’s sup­pli­ers in Asia. Ap­ple has not re­leased a launch date for the as-yet an­nounced iPhone 8 but it typ­i­cally re­leases new it­er­a­tions of the de­vice in Septem­ber. The re­port said the prob­lems are with the new fin­ger­print sen­sor and 3D-scan­ning tech­nolo­gies. Cer­tifi­cate and an air­line op­er­at­ing li­cense. If granted the ac­cred­i­ta­tion would give the air­line per­mis­sion to es­tab­lish a third com­pany wing, called “easyJet Europe” along­side its ex­ist­ing oper­a­tions in Britain and Switzer­land. All are to be owned by Britain-based par­ent easyJet plc. The move is be­ing in­ter­preted by Aus­trian me­dia as a means for the air­line to be able to con­tinue to of­fer flights within the Euro­pean Union in an­tic­i­pa­tion of the up­com­ing Brexit. In a news re­lease the com­pany did not state how many new jobs would be cre­ated at its Vi­enna oper­a­tions, though it noted that no jobs would be shifted there from Britain.
