Disappointing enough, Apple iPhone 8 launch is delayed, and the biggest question is for how long? According to latest rumors, iPhone 8 won’t arrive in this year at all. The device is said to become available in October or early November.
The Cupertino-based tycoon Apple is expected to launch 2017 iPhone in September and as the launch gets closer, rumors swirling around the forthcoming launch paint a delay and supply shortage for the first-class iPhone model.
If rumors are to be believed, iPhone 8 could be released alongside the iterative iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus but would not be available for immediate purchase.

Rumors not only indicate the delayed iPhone 8 until October but also state that the smartphone won’t be available in white color option. It has also been reported that Apple will not embed the Touch ID with the power button. However, it’s unclear at the moment that whether or not Touch ID is being dropped from this year’s model.
Analysts report iPhone 8 won’t be ready for release before the end of this year. So, Apple fanatics have to wait until next year to move their hands on the latest iPhone model. Reports further suggest that the 2017 iPhone lineup may include Face ID – a facial recognition system combining 3D face authentication and iris authentication. It adds that the iPhone maker will make the unlocking mechanism easier than ever. Users will need to just tilt their device to unlock it. However, it’s unclear how the feature will work and the possibility of Apple implementing Qi wireless charging seems high.
Some reports predict that Apple iPhone 8 launch could happen between September 7 and September 9, 2017. On the other hand, iPhone 7s and 7s Plus are likely to go on sale starting September 17, 2017.
It’s not clear how accurate the rumors behind Apple iPhone 8 launch delay are. So, it would be wise to take rumors with a grain of salt. But if the device comes out in 2018, it is safe to assume that Apple might launch iPhone 8 with superior specs and enormous changes.
