Production of the iPhone 8 may start early
The last information that was received from source from the supply chain, indicates that production of the iPhone 8 might start earlier than originally planned. Simultaneously, there was information about increasing volume of orders iPhone from 45 to 48 million units in the coming quarter.
However, there is no reason to assume that Apple will deviate from the established schedule according to which the presentation of the new smartphone and its sales traditionally occur in September of each year.
Given the radical changes in the design and the large number of innovations, which are expected in iPhone 8, early production seems quite reasonable. This will allow Apple to organize the production, and to identify and eliminate potential problems long before the start of sales.
BlueFin Research adds that after the start of production of the iPhone 8 will be reduced volumes of release of the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, and iPhone SE.
