There have been rumors to suggest that Apple’s iPhone 8 could be delayed due to shortages and also due to the complexity of manufacturing the components that Apple needs for the phone. This has resulted in reports indicating that the phone could be released in the later part of the year, or possibly even early next year.
However according to a report from Seeking Alpha (via Cult of Mac), it seems that analyst at Morgan Stanley think that Apple will no longer encounter any delays with the launch of the iPhone 8, and that it is apparently still on track for a launch this September which is usually around that time of the year that Apple makes new iPhone announcements.
So much so that the analysts have given Apple’s stock price a price target boost based on the belief that there aren’t going to be any delays. Of course this is just the opinions of analysts who may or may not end up being right, so you’ll obviously want to take this with a grain of salt for now, although we guess we wouldn’t be surprised if initial stock was low as Apple tends to run into shortages at launch due to overwhelming demand.
The latest from the analysts seem to back a tweet by @OnLeaks earlier this month in which he states that mass production is on track for August in anticipation of a launch in September, but we guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
According to my sources: DVT started last month. PVT will start between June and July. Final mass production in August for September launch. https://t.co/2M2YyMjyi8
