IPhone 8 Delayed Due To 3D Sensor Tech Issues

13 April, 2017, 01:31 | Author: Jan Cross

Apparently, the company has so many loyalists who are waiting to upgrade to the first truly new iPhone since it has never had such since 2015.

The latest update about Apple's upcoming 10 anniversary surprise phone, the iPhone 8, is reportedly going to be delayed, at least for the delivery. As per the most recent reports, when it arrives in the United Kingdom, the iPhone 8 may be less expensive than already expected.

There are several reports claiming that the release of Apple's flagship device, the "iPhone 8" will be delayed because of several issues with one of its features.

"For the 5.8-inch OLED version, the biggest bottleneck remains integrating an under-glass fingerprint sensor into the display- the current yield rate of Apple's in-house AuthenTec solution remains low and AAPL seems unwilling to use other vendors' products", Arcuri said citing his own supply chain field work.

It's a critical issue because Apple seems to be intent on establish a full-size display for its flagship new device, with a curved OLED display almost eliminating the iPhone 8's bezel. Currently, the most expensive model of the iPhone 7 configured with 256GB of internal storage costs £919. And that may force Apple to choose between some very unappealing Plan Bs.

German Navy U-boats had, in fact, devastated British merchant fleets so badly by 1917 that British defeat was imminent. But the USA military was ill-prepared for war, its small, underequipped army having seen no major combat for decades.


The rumored iPhone 8 is believed to come with a cheaper price tag. The new all-glass design may include glass backs developed by Biel and Lens, which will be fused to the front glass panel with metal linings on the sides.

However, there is good news for users who experience these issues, as of since Friday, Apple has announced they will fix iPhone 6 Plus devices that have been influenced with and/or experience the touch screen issues for an administration expense of just $229. That would easily make it the costliest iPhone to date.

According to Express, there is some good news following the delay of the iPhone.
