iPhone’s Tenth Anniversary Buzz Doing Rounds: Launch of iPhone 8 Expected to Get Delayed
With September just a couple of months away, speculations are rife about the upcoming generation of iPhones, specifically the iPhone 8, or whatever the brand names the new edition of iPhone on its 10th anniversary. However, if report from Digitimes published on July 17, 2017 is to be believed, the fans waiting for the launch of iPhone 8 may have to wait for long compared to the ones who are simply upgrading to iPhone 7 or 7s Plus phones.
According to reports from the Taiwan based leading trade newspaper, the new iPhone 8 will not be available for shipping at least until November or December. Moreover, post December; the phone will be available to the users in less numbers. The reason for delay is because the Yield rates or production rates at the firms producing iPhones have not reached the required level to permit or authorize bulk production runs.
In addition, manufacturing of the already launched and available iPhone 7 and iPhone 7s Plus is delayed by approximately one to two months from the scheduled date. Full scale production cannot be expected till August 2017.
Principal analyst at Pund-IT, Mr. Charles King mentioned that “The problem that is possibly causing the delay is profound shortage of recently introduced OLED display modules and bothersome technology that relates to fingerprint recognition. Both these issues are plausible.”
He told the Tech News World that “in case there are further delays, it will not be a surprising event unless the new iPhone 8 misses or skips the main holiday shopping season.”
According to the report, Apple has decided to unveil three new models this year. However, one major challenge Apple has to face is that it is willing to ship its product in large quantity. The products are announced in a week or ten days and are being shipped in a huge quantity immediately after its launch. This is challenging said the senior director of IHS Markit, Mr Ian Fogg.
