apple’s iphone 8 release is coming later than expected
The bad news is that it is reported that the device will be launched after the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus are on the shelves.
TechCrunch quoted people familiar with the matter as saying that the iPhone 8 will be released after the company\'s iPhone 7s model goes public.
It is reported that Apple\'s two iPhone 7s will be released on September 22. It is not clear when the release date of the iPhone 8 will be.
Although reports earlier this year said the release of the iPhone 8 may be delayed until November, recent indications suggest that,
More likely to launch in October.
Anyway, there\'s a reason.
Orders for the IPhone 8 will still open on Friday, September 15.

99, Fire TV Stick, Roku Stick, Steam Link, heroro Hero 5, and more importantly, there seem to be two main reasons why it takes some time for Apple to deliver the iPhone 8.
First, the original design goal of the Apple iPhone 8 is to embed the Touch ID sensor in the OLED display of the device.
In the early production run, however, Apple\'s yield was disappointing and forced to choose a new design.
Second, Apple has also encountered some technical obstacles in OLED display.
As detailed in a recent Wall Street Journal article, OLED displays for iPhone 8 are different from those used by Samsung on their own devices.
Apple and its suppliers are also in trouble making OLED displays.
The display module is produced in Vietnam by a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics.
Unlike the OLED display module in Samsung\'s own smartphone, the iPhone\'s display module has a touch screen outside the display, according to a person familiar with the matter.
People familiar with the matter said that the iPhone manufacturing process requires more steps and more layers of adhesive and protective film than the Samsung manufacturing process, resulting in a greater risk of manufacturing errors.
All in all, Apple\'s initial schedule for iPhone 8 production had to be delayed by about a month as engineers were working to address the manufacturing challenges described above.
While the iPhone 8 can be said to be the new version of the iPhone we have been looking forward to for many years, the iPhone May 8 seems to be the most difficult to find after the iPhone is actually released.
So far, it is widely believed that the initial supply of the iPhone 8 will be greatly limited, regardless of the official release date.
