Share

The rumor mill for Apple's upcoming premium flagship of this year, the 10th anniversary edition iPhone 8, just keeps churning, and we have more news nearly every other day regarding the production and launch of the handset. If we take the AirPods rumour, for example, Apple now has a supply issue meaning AirPods continue to face a six-week shipping estimate on Apple's website; if the company bundled these it could cause further delays of iPhone 8 shipments.

The iPhone 8 release date 2017 window is reportedly being pushed to another release window next year, but the wait might be worth it considering the planned changes in the phone's design.

Bundling the two devices together on time for the traditional September launch, then, starts to look like a suicide mission, from this perspective. The substrate-like parts will also being volume manufacturing in June.

iPhone suppliers like Foxconn and Pegatron have already begun recruiting and training workers in China who will be producing these new smartphones en masse. What's more, a diagram of the iPhone 8 also features top and bottom bezels, which goes against majority of other predictions and mockups circulating the internet. According to BGR, the next Apple smartphone might not even be called an "iPhone" at all. It is reasonable to expect a new custom SoC that is faster with better graphics, and improvements to the front and rear cameras. Reports which surfaced a couple of months back claimed that Apple's display partner Samsung is facing yield issues with the OLED displays for the iPhone.
