Apple has released an iPhone in September for the past five years, but a new report has suggested that the firm could soon break tradition.
The paper stated that the iPhone 8 could debut in October or November – citing challenges of designing a ‘radical new iPhone’.
It is believed that ‘technical issues’ are the culprit, as suppliers have struggled with the lamination process of the curved OLED panels and adoption of the 3D sensing front-camera technology.
Rumours surrounding the iPhone 8 began sweeping the web just a few months after Apple released the iPhone 7 line.
And although the iPhone 7 sold out in a week, many saw it as nothing more than a refreshed iPhone 6 – which has put some pressure on Apple to impress its users.
But with all the cutting-edge technology that is expected to be in the iPhone 8 design, many suggest that the Cupertino company is pulling out all the stops for the iPhone 8 family.
However, it seems that the new technology may push back the launch date.
The news was first revealed by Economic Daily News (via Digitimes), which suggested Apple has yet to iron out all of the kinks in its highly-anticipated smartphone, reported 9to5Mac.
