We have heard various rumors about the new iPhone 8, with some saying it would be delayed and others saying it would launch in September.
Now according to a recent report by KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the new iPhone 8 could be in short supply when it launches in September.
Apple is apparently having difficulties with productions of the handsets due to its major hardware upgrades and this could mean that it would be in short supply at launch.
We are seeing more evidence that the worst-case scenario forecasted in our April 19 report could materialize, where new iPhone shipments in 2H17F are revised down to 80- 90mn units from 100-110mn units (vs. consensus of 100-120mn units).
Apple are expected to launch three different versions of the iPhone 8 this year, which will include 4.7 and 5.5 inch LCD iPhones and a 5.8 inch OLED iPhone.
The new iPhones rare also expected to come with iOS 11, this will be made official at WWDC next month and they will feature the new Apple A11 processor and more RAM than the current models.
We can also expect this years iPhones to get upgraded cameras over the current handsets, although there are no details as yet on what sort of updates the cameras will get.
If the rumors are correct then Apple will announce their new iPhones in September and put them up for pre-order, they are then expected to hit retail in early October and could face supply shortages at launch.
