Apple are expected to release their new iPhone 8 and 8 Plus smartphones in September and according to a recent report, the company has plans to start productions earlier than normal this year.
The news comes in a report from BlueFin Research Partners, who have received some information from Apple’s supply chain.
The most intriguing data points that we have uncovered suggests that AAPL is ramping the next generation iPhones earlier than historical norms, although we have no indication that there has been any change in release plans for the iPhone 8/X.[…]
Interestingly, our present reads suggest a 300% increase in iPhone 8/X builds in the June quarter, now sitting at 9M. As a result, overall June quarter builds have increased from 45M to 48M, with the sharp increase in iPhone 8 offset somewhat by modest declines in legacy models.
There is no indication that Apple intends to launch the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus earlier than normal, so we can expect to see these new devices in September.
