This 2017 we all hope that Apple will surprise us with the launch of the iPhone 8, however, different analysts agree that Cupertino’s guys could indeed surprise us, but in a different way, by postponing the launch of the tenth anniversary iPhone until 2018. This time, the information has been reviewed in a Deutsche Bank research note published in Business Insider.
According to the research note, several supply chain reports have suggested that shortages of key components and other technical challenges could delay the release of a high-end Apple device, such as the iPhone 8, this fall.

If Deutsche Bank’s claims are correct, we will know in a few months, however, this is not the first time we have heard about the delays of iPhone 8. Bloomberg reported in April that the next iPhone could be delayed “one or two months” due to manufacturing problems, and analyst Mac Otakara expects a delayed launch as well. For his part, Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst at KGI Securities, a traditionally trusted Apple company, said last week that mass production of the iPhone 8 could begin even after the date on which it was supposed to be launched, i.e. in October or November.
