We have some good news for anyone who wants to get his/her hands on the upcoming iPhone 8. Some previous reports were suggesting that the release date of iPhone 8 will be delayed, but it seems that might prove to be just a hoax.
According to JPMorgan’s analysts, the anniversary iPhone 8 will be released on time and it will start selling before the end of September, exactly when Apple usually starts selling its new iPhones. However, we have some bad news also, as according to the same analysts there will not be many iPhone 8 handsets at launch.
JPMorgan’s Rod Hall claimed that they expect a small amount of late September EMS output for the iPhone 8 model and then ramping production through October. With that being said, most of the people who will want to purchase the iPhone 8 will not be able to do it before November 2017.
To make things even worse, the analysts think that Apple’s new iPhone will cost even more than expected as it comes with new features such as: wireless charging, face recognition, OLED screen, which will increase the production costs. JPMorgan predicts that the iPhone 8 will be sold for about $1100, which is $100 more than the previously rumored price.
With that being said, Apple will probably launch a pre-order website where you will be able to pay for this upcoming device. We think that only the ones who will manage to pre-order the handset will get it by the end of September or at the beginning of October 2017. However, starting November 2017 everyone who will want to buy the iPhone 8 will be able to do it.
What are your thoughts about the upcoming iPhone 8? Will you pre-order it as soon as Apple will make it available or you will just wait until November 2017?
