iPhone 8 May Begin Production Sooner Than Expected
It’s possible that Apple will begin early production of the iPhone 8. Industry analysts at BlueFin Research Partners sent investors a research note where they said that Apple will likely begin production of the iPhone 8 in June. That is a bit sooner than Apple’s normal production schedule, but the note said that it was unlikely to impact the launch window.
While it is unlikely that this will affect Apple’s release window, the increased production time does make sense considering the rumors that the newest model of Apple’s smartphone will be very different from previous versions. It’s also possible that the move is an attempt to increase supply in order to help meet demand upon launch. Traditionally speaking, Apple has had trouble meeting demand upon the launch of a new iPhone and other core Apple products.
We still don’t have many details regarding the new iPhone, but there are plenty of rumors suggesting that it will be different from previous models. For starters, it could be the first of Apple’s smartphones to feature a curved OLED screen as well as a glass enclosure. It is also rumored that the more expensive version of the 8 could feature wireless charging – though that has not yet been confirmed.
In addition to the iPhone 8, Apple is also expected to release the 7 and 7S plus which will feature some minor upgrades over the previous models of the 7. Some of the rumored improvements include increased water resistance, an improved camera, and processor. As of right now, these are only rumors, but we should learn more in the coming weeks.
We’ll have more information on the iPhone 8 as we move closer to the launch.
