Will the iphone 8 be de­layed un­til 2018?

Web User - - Need To Know -

Ac­cord­ing to mul­ti­ple sources, Ap­ple will not re­lease the iphone 8 in 2017 – just the bor­ing old iphone 7S. The sources say Ap­ple is ex­pe­ri­enc­ing a lot of prob­lems with get­ting the iphone 8 built in the de­sired numbers.

Pro­duc­tion woes had al­ready pushed back the re­lease of the hand­set by a cou­ple of months to around Novem­ber, ac­cord­ing to tech-news site BGR, but that date has now been fur­ther de­layed with the news that it might not even get a re­lease un­til next year.

“Report sug­gests no new iphone 8 this cal­en­dar year,” wrote an­a­lysts at Deutsche Bank. “As we have writ­ten in pre­vi­ous [re­search notes], sev­eral sup­ply chain re­ports have sug­gested that key com­po­nent short­ages and tech­ni­cal chal­lenges could de­lay the re­lease of a high­end iphone 8 de­vice this fall.”

The iphone 7S and iphone 7S Plus are ap­par­ently on track for a re­lease at Ap­ple’s usual time of around Septem­ber, although we can’t see too many peo­ple get­ting ex­cited by these hand­sets when the prospect of the rad­i­cally re­designed iphone 8 has been dan­gled in front of their noses.

It was re­cently re­vealed that in the first three months of the year, iphone sales dipped for the first time, a de­cline that Ap­ple CEO Tim Cook blamed on leaks about the iphone 8.
