The iPhone 8 exists, of that we’re sure. It is coming alongside the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus, which means that Apple is unveiling three new smartphones at once for the first time. But interested buyers may not be able to purchase it right away.
The company Finisar hinted during its recent earnings call that it supplies Apple with a specialized laser that can be used for AR and even image recognition. While Apple was not directly named, it is strongly believed to be the company that Finisar was pertaining to.
BGR reported that Finisar’s production schedule suggests that the iPhone 8 will indeed be revealed in September together with its siblings. However, it may not be available until the following month while the 7s and 7s Plus will be for sale shortly after the unveiling. This speculation corroborates previous reports indicating that the 10th anniversary iPhone will start shipping in October.
