iPhone 8 Pre-Orders Likely to Go Live in September, Shipments Delayed Until 'Several Weeks Later' [Report]

Despite rumors that the iPhone 8 could launch later than normal, a new report says pre-orders will likely go live in September with shipments following 'several weeks later'.

Drexel Hamilton analyst Brian White says that Apple is planning to launch a 4.7-inch, 5.5-inch and 5.8-inch OLED iPhone this fall. The new 5.8-inch model is believed to be delayed due to issues surrounding the 3D sensor.

Our contact strongly believes the 5.8-inch iPhone 8 will be delayed by several weeks due to challenges around the 3D sensing technology, but still in time for the December holidays. This is not the first time that we've heard about a potential delay with a new iPhone; however, our contact was so emphatic about the delay that we are taking this data point more seriously. Since it is only April, this situation could improve. Essentially, our contact believes customers will be able to pre-order the new 5.8-inch iPhone 8 along with the new 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhones in September; however, the 5.8-inch iPhone 8 will not be available for delivery until several weeks later.

This somewhat aligns with other recent reports that have suggested the iPhone 8 may not arrive until October or November.

It's still quite a long way from launch so make sure to follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for updates.

Don't be fooled, there won't be iPhone 8 before iPhone 7s. They got no better news to talk about?
