It sounds more and more like the iPhone 8 is going to release late. It is okay, but when? How long will it take? Analysts from Deutsche Bank issued a research note. The report is suggesting that iPhone 8 is not releasing on this calendar year. Everyone is waiting for iPhone 8 eagerly, but it would not release in 2017, based on a report from Value Walk.
The Latest Report From Value Walk Indicating that New iPhone 8 Is Not Releasing In 2017
According to bank’s analyst, “We have written in earlier research notes that various supply chain reports have indicated that technical challenges and key elements shortages could delay the release of a top-notch iPhone 8 this fall. We think that this report further emphasizes the ambiguousness around the timing of next-generation iPhone model.”
The Value Walk story refers unnamed supply chain sources which are close to Foxconn (Foxconn is one the Apple manufacturer) that iPhone 8 would not be releasing this year, because of the apparent lack of orders for packaging materials. However, the iPhone 7S model will arrive on schedule in Autumn 2017.
We cannot say anything explicitly about the accuracy of the report by Value Walk. It is not prominent for breaking or leaking Apple’s major new. However, if the story is accurate, then it would be a huge deal for Apple. We do not believe that Apple will comment on this. Apple never discusses unannounced products and rumors ahead of time.
What Is KGI Securities Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo Take On The Release Date?
Other than this report, we have heard more from reliable sources earlier. It includes KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo that iPhone 8 may face delays in release. The analyst has said that he believes the iPhone 8 will announce alongside iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus. However, it might take a few months until customers will get their hands on it due to increased production difficulty. We can understand why it is getting late. We can expect from iPhone 8 that it will feature significant changes. Such as:
- Edge To Edge Screen
- A Revamped Camera
- No Physical Home Button
- Wireless Charging
- Augmented Reality
- OLED Display
Along with the iPhone 7S, it is believed in taking benefit of an upgrade “super cycle.” Massive numbers of Apple customers with old models in need of an upgrade, which will probably lead to record sales.
In Our Opinion
The idea and thought that the iPhone 8 is not releasing and arriving till 2018 seems extreme. Most of the Apple users have not updated their iPhone 6 and iPhone 6S variants with iPhone 7 lineup. During the launch of iPhone 7, everyone knew that the 2017 iPhone model would be fantastic because of its excellent features and specs.
