I feel as if the next iPhone is way too complicated to finish on time.
With so many changes and even the software has to adjust.
I don't think it's coming out this year..
Do you think a 7S is coming instead ?

The main thing is people don't no what it will be called. Anniversary edition, iPhone 8 or iPhone x. But it will definitely be updated. It would be ignorant for them to keep the same design. They would lose a lot of customers.

There almost certainly will be an iPhone with a new design and many, if not all of the rumoured new features. Whether it will be called the iPhone 8 or something else is debatable, but unimportant. This is Apple, a multi, multi billion dollar tech giant, not some kid trying to turn in his science fair project on time. Supply will likely not meet demand (what else is new?) but they will have something ready for the fall.

That's why we are not engineers. Apple likely spent years working on whatever model is releasing ahead of time long before you even thought of it. A $43 billion company wouldn't make an error of that magnitude to not release one.

Very odd topic

Of course there will be one. It's their job to make it happen it just won't be here on time most likely

I have no doubt the phone will debut this fall. i do suspect there may be a slight delay by a month or two along with the usual, characteristic shortages as well. I'm using an iPhone 6 so I am eager to upgrade. My contract expired at the end of 2016 and
I decided to wait for the next gen iPhone. All I have to say is I hope Apple gets it right this time. If not, I might just move over
to the Galaxy S8. The iPhone 7 was just a recycling of previous technology. Little if anything was substantially different or better.
I found no reason, at all, to upgrade to it.

It's past time Apple moved to OLED and away from LCD. It'll be interesting to check out wireless charging IF Apple includes it.
What was with the 'red' iPhone 7, anyways? I'm sure they call it an 'innovative' color. Let's hope they bump up the base storage
as well, other than giving the consumer a paltry base amount.

Apple should go back to summer release dates like the original iPhone. Heck, with the time/money they saved with R&D of the repurposed iPhone 7, you would think they could've done it with the iPhone 8.

I think will be announced and available for order in November at the latest, but of course many people may not get it until next year if there are shortages.

Because it's almost 70% of Apple's net revenue and it would be asinine not to release an iPhone....

Yep. That's why they'll release one and make a HUGE deal out of it being the anniversary and about any changes they make in it.

It's a massive chunk of their revenue.

I do believe there will be an iPhone 8. I just don't think that will be the name. I think it will be call iPhone Edition or something like that.

because its just a phone ...

Yeah, I don't imagine that Apple cares about the public perception of iPhones very much. These silly little mobile phone things are just something that they dabble in to supplement tens of billions of dollars that iPods are bringing in. Does anyone even notice iPhone launches?

(I'm really not sure if I need to explain that this is sarcasm or not)
