It is reported that the mass production of the iPhone 8 started, and the device will still be traditionally released in September.
In recent months, many experts have questioned Apple's ability to release the iPhone 8 in the traditional launch window in mid-September. Such a conclusion was made on the basis of the obtained sketchy forecasts of analysts (for example, Bank of America or Morgan Stanley). While limited device shipments are still questionable, the likelihood that Apple will have to postpone production, perhaps the biggest batch of the iPhone since its first release 10 years ago, is small enough. Confirmation of this is the appeared data @OnLeaks that the mass production of devices has already begun.
This may mean that the iPhone 8 will still be introduced in September. And if you do not really trust the rumors, then pay attention to the forecasts of Apple. The company expects that 12% growth will be fixed in the next quarter, which will not allow the company to delay release of new iPhone.
In addition, according to @OnLeaks, in the near future we will receive more and more leaks. Mass production allows potential spies to "merge" several photos even though Apple is doing everything possible to avoid this.
