We’ve seen multiple reports about the shortage of supply for the much talked about iPhone 8. However, according to Ming-Chi Kuo from KGI Securities, in spite of the shortage, Apple will still announce its tenth anniversary iPhone, along with the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus. Kuo also reports that the device will be available in only three colours, and no, rose gold will not be one of them.
Don’t get too excited yet though, according to the report, Apple will only announce its OLED iPhone 8, and the phone could arrive later. Kuo says that mass production for the device will start in mid-September, with only two to four million units or less during the third quarter of the year. The constraint will continue into the holiday period and through the start of next year.
As for the colour options, the iPhone 8 will come in three different colours – black, silver and gold. Current iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are available in six colours – rose gold, champagne gold, silver, black, jet black, and red.
Of course, these are just rumours for now, so take it with a pinch of salt. Apple is expected to announce new iPhones – iPhone 7s, iPhone 7s Plus and its 10th anniversary iPhone next month.
