iPhone 8 release date, price, new features land online

Apple’s iPhone 8 will be released some time in mid-September alongside the less sensational iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus according to a latest verifiable report from notoriously authoritative industry analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Velvetiere reports.
Several had suggested that the iPhone 8 – the top-end model that will include a tons of new avant-garde features – could be delayed by weeks or even months, pushing it all the way trough December.
But Apple will have all three new iPhone models ready to go for a special media product launch event in mid-September as usual, the latest report suggested. And all the handsets will all go on sale on the same day as iPhone 8 release date, which will potentially come about a week and a half or two after the announcement.
But Kuo predicted that the new iPhone 8 will be in limited supply when it hits the general market, saying that it might sell out incredibly fast. Apple is only assumed to make between two and four million units of the iPhone 8 this quarter, which is a relatively small figures, given that the tech mammoth usually sells more than 200 million phones each year cycle.
That production will get bigger quickly through the 2017, which only mean that the company will have far more of the handsets ready to go on sale en route to the end of the year and into 2018. The top-of-the-line iPhone 8 or iPhone Pro is highly expected to eventually sell more than the incrementally upgraded iPhone 7s and 7s Plus, Kou said.
