iPhone 8: Release Date And Earlier Predictions

iPhone 8

The iPhone 8 is one of the most eagerly awaited devices of 2017.

Along with the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8, it’s expected to compete for the year’s top mobile honours, when it eventually lands.

While the Galaxy S8 will be officially unveiled on March 29, the new iPhone isn’t expected to drop until September.

According to new reports, however, Apple’s next-generation smartphone could be hit with delays, with the phone to pushed back even later in the year.

That’s according to reputed tech blog Macotakara.

The report has suggested that instead of an iPhone 8 branded device, Apple will debut the iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus later this year.

These incremental handset updates will launch and brand new, super high-end device dubbed the iPhone Edition.

Citing unnamed insiders, the report has claimed that although debuting alongside its 7S siblings this September, the top flight phone won’t hit retailers’ shelves at the same time.

“This iPhone Edition will be published with iPhone 7S, iPhone 7S Plus at the special event in September,” the report states.

It adds: “The actual sales time may be behind very much.”

Although suggesting the iPhone Edition will be faced with consumer availability restrictions, the report has failed to detail exactly how long these delays will be.

More than just a minor update, the iPhone 8, or iPhone Edition as it might be known, is expected to bring sweeping changes as it marks 10 years of Apple smartphones.

Chief amongst the changes will be a radical new design, with a new glass-backed finish set to incorporate curved edges.

This curved body and screen will reportedly play host to a mass of high-end innards, with a new A11 processor to be joined by the upcoming iOS 11 software, improved cameras and a larger battery.

Apple has yet to comment on the claims.
