The dates are set and Apple’s next in line flagship is to be announced soon. We already know some of the grave details on how the highly anticipated iPhone 8 will look like. With all thanks to the rumor mill, the device is said to come with an edge to edge display with a camera notch at the top which will incorporate the front camera and various sensors.

However, there are speculations that the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus will arrive early than the iPhone 8.

iPhone 8 To Ship Later Than The iPhone 7s and It’s Bigger Variant

The keynote is to take place at the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, California. According to a Japanese blog Macotakara, Apple will start pre-orders for the iPhone 7s, 7s Plus and the iPhone 8 on the 15th of September. However, the company would ship the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus earlier, compared to the iPhone 8. According to the sources familiar with the matter, the latter will be shipped later in October.

At this point in time, the exact dates have yet not been confirmed and official words from the company are yet to be stated. There are various reason why the iPhone 8 could arrive later and not alongside the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus. For one, it could possibly be due to the specific components orders. As we all know the iPhone 8 will be equipped with an OLED panel, this time, the company has only tapped Samsung to be its sole provider of the panels. This could possibly mean that Apple is facing shortages for the OLED screens of the iPhone 8.
