Worry no more about an iPhone 8 delay.

According to the
latest rumors surrounding Apple’s next-generation smartphone, a
launch will go ahead in September as originally planned.
Analysts say they see no delays in the company’s supply chain,
and still expect the iPhone 8 to enter mass production on

We’re all expecting this year’s iPhone to be spectacular. To
celebrate the handset’s tenth anniversary, Apple is said to be
making significant changes, with
an all-new design
, its first
OLED smartphone display
, and features like
iris scanning

Thanks to
all those changes, it’s thought Apple has had trouble sourcing
enough components from suppliers. That OLED display in
particular is reportedly difficult to manufacture, and
therefore hard to obtain in the massive numbers Apple demands.

Some rumors have even suggested the
iPhone 8 will be delayed until as
late as November
— but Morgan Stanley analysts say that
won’t be the case. Although there may be low yields of some
components, everything is on track for a September launch.

Stanley’s Greater China Technology Research colleagues have not
yet seen delays in the supply chain and still expect new iPhone
production to start on time for most of the components (including
OLED),” the firm revealed.

corroborates earlier claims from the reliable @OnLeaks, whose
sources say that the iPhone 8 will enter PVT (Production
Validation Test) in October ahead of mass production in August.

It looks like your credit card will be taking a hit a little
earlier than you might have anticipated!
