As to why it will take Apple some time to deliver the iPhone 8, there appear to be two main reasons.
One, Apple’s initial design goal for the iPhone 8 was to embed a Touch ID sensor into the device’s OLED display.
Apple, however, experienced disappointing yields during early manufacturing runs and was forced to opt for a new design.
All told, the initial timeline Apple laid out for iPhone 8 production had to be pushed back by about a month as engineers worked to address the aforementioned manufacturing challenges midstream.
To this point, it’s widely believed that initial iPhone 8 supply, no matter when the official release date is, will be extremely constrained.
