The iPhone 8’s release date will be even later than a number of reports have claimed, says Deutsche Bank. A research note from analysts at the bank indicate they believe the iPhone 8 is going to arrive in 2018, not late 2017.
Other reports had stated the phone would be revealed later this year, though it’d be hard to get until 2018.
Supply chain sources told the analysts there’s been a lack of orders for packing material, suggesting the iPhone 8 isn’t on track for 2017 availability. Meanwhile, the iPhone 7s is headed for a typical arrival date.
