Production ramp up of OLED iPhone could be delayed to October-November (previously estimated to be August-September, as in previous years).

Taking into account these developments, KGI Securities has lowered its shipment forecast (including the iterative 7S models as well as the all-new iPhone 8) from 110 million down to 80-90 million units. Constraints in Apple's (NASDAQ:AAPL) supply chain have also been cited for the delay.

From limited supply to tricky components, here are the main problems and effects of the Apple iPhone 8's late arrival. Kuo claims the more conservative new models, likely dubbed iPhone 7S and 7S Plus, would not be delayed.

Two other new models could use the same screen technology and sizes as the current iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

Kuo says the iPhone 8 features "significant hardware upgrades" that are responsible for the production delays, including the custom OLED display, the A11 10nm chip, the new 3D Touch module and the 3D sensing cameras.

Sousa says investing in real estate is not a bad thing, but he wants speculators to pay their fair share. The good news is that the measures announced today are unlikely to send the market into a tailspin.

Last week, supposed iPhone 8 specs leaked and showed a design that would be an absolute travesty.

Another report is warning of severe supply constraints for the iPhone 8 due to a delayed production ramp up.

After suffering its first-ever annual decline in iPhone sales past year, Apple has a lot riding on the new phones anticipate this fall.

In addition to all that, Geskin's tweets suggest the iPhone 8 to come with a curved display with 4mm bezels, 2.5D glass at the back, 7.1mm thick frame and a new Space Black colour.

The analyst said the delay "won't undermine actual demand", as long as the iPhone 8 meets fans' expectations. Also confirmed here for the iPhone 8 is dual rear cameras and even dual front cameras. The origins of these photos are basically unknown, which means there's very, very good reason to be suspicious of them, but they at least offer an idea of what we're expecting to see this fall. More high-concept ones include models that feature glass on the front and back and sport Touch ID underneath the OLED display. While some reports have said Apple is pushing hard for a September launch, other scattered reports said that the iPhone 8 release might be pushed back anywhere from four to eight weeks.
