Customers of the expected 5.8 inch “iPhone 8” may have to wait a few extra weeks to get their phones, according to an analyst of Apple’s supply chain. It is likely that Apple will stick to tradition and will launch the device and begin taking pre-orders in September. but most customers will not get their devices shipped for several weeks. This delay is rumored to be due to difficulties with the phone’s new 3D camera.
The analyst did warn that September is still distant, and many things could yet change the timing of the next iPhone launch. In addition, the delay should not affect the iPhone 7 upgrades also expected to launch in September.
