If we look back at every release...wasn't there always a shortage? I think they play on our attention def.

This is all a part of the grand scheme of some precise marketing. “Oh no, there might not be enough parts to make a full shipment upon release day... better preorder or spend the night in front of our store to get one!!!”. All of this “Panic” is hogwash. You don’t think Apple plays a role in this “leaked” info and/or rumor mill crap?!? Cmon... it happens every year now... the exact same way, lol Not complaining, just saying.

F U Apple this is what you get for not hiring me as one of your lead software engineers ! You did not choose wisely. Much deserved karma ! LOL

Does anyone really believe that Apple has been working on this iPhone iteration and perfecting it, for less than a year ? Apple doesn't leave anything too chance, and more than likely miraculously around September, the parts shortages and software/hardware issues will have been solved, and the device will be ready for shipment...on a limited basis of course.

hahahahaha You actually believe that. That is so hilarious. Are you seeing unicorns in your back yard ?
Oh Apple, you so silly - July 12, 2017 at 10:44am
Ha ha! The problem is that Apple can't buy enough Samsung Galaxy S8's & just rebrand them iPhones ;)

i just don't understand what's the rush.. if you can't deliver a quality product, then don't do it.

Are you crazy ? That would make perfect sense, please the customer to have a device that works like it should and make Tim Cook look like he knows what he's doing.

Not likely from Apple, it's just dejavú from past releases to build up momentum. Gotta have me some popcorn to enjoy the show xP

welcome to the land of drm and closed jail where every problem is more opaque than the price tag

And these news are also a tactic to make a "sense of panic" among the customers so that they will start lining up in front of the apple store when they will hears relatively small batches of iPhone 8 are being delivered from the factory...

Yeah I agree with you, all part of the marketing scheme
