Pre-Order of iPhone 8 Starts September, Shipment Expected Before December Holidays

Arcuri does not believe that there will be any delays related to the 3D sensor. t's widely expected that the 10th anniversary iPhone will be a massive update. The analyst says that reports suggesting 3D sensing tech is what's causing delays with the iPhone 8 are not accurate.

It is all but clear that the iPhone 8 will be radically different from the Apple devices we have seen in the past.

Apple and Samsung continue to rival for marketshare within the smartphone industry.

Salute to Chuck Berry opens Rock Hall ceremony
To be eligible, all of the nominees had to have released their first recording no later than 1991. Inductees will eventually be enshrined in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame museum in Cleveland.

According to his most recent research note, a copy of which was obtained on Wednesday by AppleInsider, Cowan and Company analyst Timothy Arcuri detailed how Apple has apparently "reached a bottleneck", and is now generating much lower than expected yield rates for the iPhone 8 and its glass-embedded Touch ID sensor, citing his own supply chain work. Currently, the most expensive model of the iPhone 7 configured with 256GB of internal storage costs £919.

Apple's analyst Brian White has rekarked that "However, our contact strongly believes the 5.8-inch iPhone will be delayed by several weeks due to challenges around the 3-D sensing technology but still in time for the December holidays". And that may force Apple to choose between some very unappealing Plan Bs. The new all-glass design may include glass backs developed by Biel and Lens, which will be fused to the front glass panel with metal linings on the sides.

That would easily make it the costliest iPhone to date. According to the report, the Apple iPhone 6s has a failure rate of 62%.
