    I read MacRumors, BGR, CultofMac etc with so many leaks and rumors I think we would know from actual Foxxcon employees with US ties or connections to reporters who give them kickbacks for news if it's even started production ?

    A very late production start, vast majority can't get one until mid 2018 likely, why not wait for the much larger 8s Plus ?

    Why do you keep assuming the worst and telling everyone to wait for the 8s? And who says it will be bigger. You'll only buy all the delay rumours of the 8s and tell everyone to wait for the 9. Might as well give up on iPhone now.

    I'm not sure where you come up with your assertions and I think you read too much into these rumors and/or reports that is nothing more than speculation. I Would suggest that you need to trust Apple more than what you read on the Internet.

    I agree completely. Let's see what Apple says. I think trying to see into what internet rumors say too much can lead anyone to insanity . Apple is in the business to make money and they have a good track record of getting phones out on time albeit not always in the quantity we as the consumers may like.

    I believe Apple will release iPhone 8S Plus next year with 6.4 display. [iPhone 8S - 5.8, iPhone 8S Plus - 6.4 both with reduced bezels] Apple will discontinue 4.7 inch and 5.5 inch models.

    I wouldn't panic right now, nor jump to conclusions.
    Every year we read about delays and Apple has been able to sell millions of iPhones in late September.
    I guess this year it will be difficult to get an iPhone 8 or whatever they'll call it, but even getting a Jet Black wasn't that easy last fall. I'd expect iPhone 8 to have even longer waiting time for delivery at the beginning.
    But I don't think it will be like AirPods, delayed for months and still hard to get (AS says delivery in 6 weeks). iPhone is too important to Apple to miss the holiday season.

    I'm not sure I'll buy one, my main concern is price. In Europe iPhone are already pricey, and even if I own a 6s I'm not sure the upgrade will be worth the price. I may go for the 7s+ or wait 2018 and hope they'll make only bezel free phones with more affordable prices

    Apple isn't saying a thing that's annoying.

    And when do they ever announce iPhone details before the keynote? You seem to like creating problems that don't exist.

    Ignore them.... their have been exactly ZERO leaked parts or images of the 7S, so how do we know anything else is real? It's all up in the air and Apple is coming down hard on leakers, so just wait, only a few more weeks now :)
    You can moan about the Note 8 next month when it's launched in the meantime to keep you busy?

    They never say anything about an upcoming product until the keynote when they unveil it. Why would they? Just relax and wait and stop worrying about rumours.

    Apple has never commented on the status of an upcoming product before they officially announce it.

    What day did apple start producing the iPhone 7 and 7 plus....? How many days was it from the unveiling and then the release? If you don't know that... then all you are doing is speculating? What day is Apple unveiling the new iPhone...and when will they release it for sale? Please stop speculating! And please stop being chicken little...the sky is falling all of the time. How many people will be building and assembling this phone in comparison to previous launches? There are so very many factors that I know I have no knowledge about and doubt you have any first hand knowledge of any of it either... and for this reason... please stop telling people what they should be doing. Where is your article that cites that the 8s plus is for surely going to be much larger... and maybe someone doesn't want a much larger iPhone.

    They never do... if you think this is unusual... please cite there their released info ahead of time before. Good grief!

    The safest thing to do at this point is keep oneself lockup in their room until the announcement
