iPhone 8, 7S, Plus to launch on time despite inventory shortages

Apple is gearing up for iPhone 8 release date in mid-September alongside less-spectacular iPhone 7s & iPhone 7s Plus.

Apple’s iPhone 8 release date set sometime in September. The iPhone 8, iPhone 7s & iPhone 7s Plus will arrive on time after mid-September launch event.

The Apple’s iPhone 8 will be released some time in mid-September alongside the less sensational iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus according to a latest verifiable report from notoriously authoritative industry analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

Several had suggested that the iPhone 8 – the top-end model that will include a tons of new avant-garde features – could be delayed by weeks or even months, pushing it all the way trough December.

But Apple will have all three new iPhone models ready to go for a special media product launch event in mid-September as usual, the latest report suggested. And all the handsets will all go on sale on the same day as iPhone 8 release date, which will potentially come about a week and a half or two after the announcement.

But Mr Kuo predicted that the new iPhone 8 will be in limited supply when it hits the general market, saying that it might sell out incredibly fast. Apple is only assumed to make between two and four million units of the iPhone 8 this quarter, which is a relatively small figures, given that the tech mammoth usually sells more than 200 million phones each year cycle.

That production will get bigger quickly through the 2017, which only mean that the company will have far more of the handsets ready to go on sale en route to the end of the year and into 2018. The top-of-the-line iPhone 8 or iPhone Pro (which ever moniker you want to use) is highly expected to eventually sell more than the incrementally upgraded iPhone 7s and 7s Plus, Kou said.

Apple is expected to unveil three new iPhones in its traditional special media event in fall. Apple will also include the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus, as widely expected.

As for pricing, the iPhone 8 is purportedly be the most expensive iPhone ever built to date, costing as high as $1,400. For that, buyers will get hold of a slew of new innovative features, including an OLED display that stretches all the way across the front of the device and special depth-sensing technology.

Apple’s HomePod software accidentally leaked a slew of iPhone 8 details. The Cupertino-headquartered technology giant’s own code in the HomeKit software indirectly corroborated a couple of exclusive details we reported back in July and now in convergence with this I can validate that the Apple’s flagship smartphone production-ready final design..

Following a bunch of artist renders last month, some have been able to secure a prototype of finalized radically redesigned iPhone 8. Unlike some of dummy units which have emerged over the worldwide web in the recent months, this is not a raw piece of prototype but a highly detailed replica assembled with premium components and, up and running power, physical volume and mute buttons.

The iPhone 8 will quite slightly larger than the current generation iPhone 7, but significantly smaller than the iPhone 7 Plus and it feels premium in hand. It is quite similar to the Samsung’s Galaxy S8 in look and feel and it should be comparatively handy for most one-handed users.

The massive 5.8-inch edge-to-edge OLED display also looks astounding in the final iPhone 8 release. There is a notch in the top bezel of the handset – an area where the front facing camera and sensors houses.

The rear dual cameras are vertically aligned as widely reported. This is initially decided for the augmented reality — which it is regularly viewed with handset in landscape mode — and relatively as many analysts believe the circuitry of the iPhone 8 left the Cupertino firm with little option, though we should expect it to be marketed for the AR.

Apple will take the risky strategy of dumping off the Touch ID fingerprint biometric scanner in the iPhone 8 in favor with the IR-equipped ’Face ID’ facial recognition security system.

The iPhone 8 reportedly will come in just three color variants: black, silver and gold, Kuo claimed. Kuo also claimed that all three new iPhones will include fast charging technology, which is currently available in the iPad Pro, as well as wireless charging functionalities.
