iPhone 8 is one of the most anticipated devices that are expected to come out for Apple this year. However, earlier speculations spread that the Cupertino-based company is allegedly having a hard time of putting up the materials for the said smartphone procrastinating its mass production. But now, the giant tech has announced that they are right on its schedule for its September launch and October sales, following reports that it will be delayed until the end of the year.
Apple is a multinational tech company that designs, develops and sells high-end hardware devices, computer software, and online services. Some of its famous products are the iPhone smartphones, iPad tablet line, and Mac personal computers. Now, the giant tech company is reportedly ready to unveil its newest iPhone product, the iPhone 8.
iPhone 8 is the flagship device for the Apple company for this year in direct competition with Samsung's own Galaxy S8 smartphone release last month. Now, the Cupertino-based company revealed that they will begin selling the gadget right on its schedule.
According to DigiTimes, there will be no delay for Apple's flagship smartphone and iPhone 8 mass production is right on schedule. The new iPhone is set to be launch in September and Apple will start selling the device in October, contradicting earlier rumors that it would be delayed until the end of the year due to the production issue of some parts.
iPhone 8 parts suppliers including Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), Zhen Ding Technology and Kinsus Interconnect Technology (SLP makers) and Simplo Technology (battery) have built up its iPhone parts production starting this June. Both Zhen Ding and Kinsus succeeded on increasing its yield rates for SLP (substrate-like PCB) products assuring the Apple company of enough supplies.
Mac Rumors further added that iPhone assemblers Foxconn, Winston, and Pegatron reportedly are speeding up the recruitment and training of its new workers in China for the mass production of the new iPhone. Apple has reshaped the design of the iPhone 8 making it a glass body and an edge-to-edge OLED display that allegedly will come with a Touch ID fingerprint sensor.
Aside from that, Apple reportedly will introduce the OLED iPhone 8 in a 4.7 and 5.5-inch model as an upgraded variant. The new iPhone possible feature includes wireless charging, a 3D sensing front-facing camera, and facial recognition aptitudes.
