Is there any chance that the iPhone 8 will be released in the summer as it was pre 2010 or do you think Apple will stick with the Sept cycle?

I posted this on another thread, but it's also appropriate here I think.

September 2017 cycle. Production is allegedly rumored for June/July 2017.

You mean that they will start production in June/July?

Correct. Production usually starts July/August. But the rumors are stating an earlier production this year to meet demands from facing constraint and OLED is rumored to start production in June with manufacturing and part supplier constraints. Again, all speculation without evidence.

Pre-order starts at September 8th. If you place the first pre-order, you will get a MacBook Pro 13-inch late 2011 for free. So prepare yourself!!

In the middle of several books.
You have a better chance of getting hit by lightning, winning the state lottery, getting thousands of Facebook likes for needless drivel posting, or becoming the next target for insulting posts on the PRSI forum on MacRumors, than being the beneficiary of Apple's anticipated iPhone X (whatever it will be called) this summer.

I was wondering when we would start hearing these wishes for an early release but if they facts were know, we will be lucky for Apple to have enough 8 units for September launch. It will be a most sought after device for sure.

One good thing about the 8 going into production is we may see some parts sneaked out for covert imaging ;)

I feel like every year this rumor that it might get released for the summer goes around. Judging from the past few releases I'm thinking September

It will definitely be September. And we're not even to the supplier or hardware leaks yet, which usually start April/ May. Which to me, are intentionally leaked from the manufacture.

No chance after the 7 just came out in September. That'd be a great way to tick everyone off.

Bring on the early leaks.
