The iPhone 8 is expected to be released in September 2017, but there are some reports suggesting that this device will not hit the stores until October or even November 2017. There are also some new reports suggesting that Apple might even consider releasing the iPhone 8 sometime in early 2018, which doesn’t make any sense.
There are some new rumors saying that there will not be any kind of delays and that Apple will make sure that the device will be released in September, the month when new iPhones are usually released.
The same rumors say that even if there will be some delays, they won’t happen because of the new chip that will be added to the iPhone 8 and iPhone 7s. The new A11 chip that will power the new devices developed by Apple (iPhone 8, iPhone 7s and future iPads) will be faster than the previous A10 Fusion chip and it will consume less power than it.
It seems that Apple is using a next-gen chip design process on the A11 (the 10nm process), that was also used for the most powerful chips out there (such as Exynos 8995 and Qualcomm Snapdragon 835) that will power the most expensive Android devices this year.
We remind you that some earlier reports were suggesting that the chip makers have some issues with the production of 10nm chips, which can cause some delays for various OEMs, such as Apple, Huawei, HTC and others. However, a report from Digitimes claims that the production of A11 chip is on schedule and this should not be a reason why the iPhone 8 would be delayed.
Any iPhone fan hopes that the iPhone 8 will be released in September 2017 and we think that Apple is doing its best to bring it during that period of time. However, if the iPhone 8 will be released sometime in late November or early December 2017, that could also increase the sales, as many customers will think that this device can be an awesome Christmas gift.
