iPhone 8 production to be started earlier than expected, says reports

Apple is said to start production of the much-expected smartphone iPhone 8 earlier than what said earlier, reported Barren's Tech Radar. The site quoted BlueFin Research Partners’s John Donovan and Steve Mullane saying the firm will gear up the production and start the distribution by June. But this doesn't mean there will be a change in the launch date of iPhone 8.

If the report is to be believed, then this will be the first time Apple will be starting an early production for its upcoming device. “The most intriguing data points that we have uncovered suggests that AAPL is ramping the next generation iPhones earlier than historical norms, although we have no indication that there has been any change in release plans for the iPhone 8/X,” the report reads.


This year marks the tenth anniversary of iPhones and Apple is expected board in radical changes to its iPhone 8. Reports suggest that the company is starting an early production to sort out manufacturing issues before the phone is officially launched in September. Manufacturers believe that this could "potentially lead to better supply".

Apple is believed to be working on three iPhone 8 models- the biggest will be a 5.8-inch iPhone, along with the regular 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone. The iPhone manufacturer is reported to drop the aluminium back cover for a return to the “glass sandwich” design. The OLED display will be introduced, and the largest version will have a "wraparound" design with the Touch ID under the glass. The feature of facial recognition will be introduced in the new iPhone as well. Apple is believed to be working on an exclusive wireless charging technology for the much talked about the phone. There will be a receiver inside it, which will be connected to a transmitter plugged into the wall socket to start charging the device.
