Apple is said to be making three models of the iPhone this year.
The iPhone 8 may be available in limited quantities initially, say reports. The device, which has so far been called iPhone 8 by most, will apparently be called the iPhone Edition upon launch. Apple is also going to launch the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus this year, reports have said. The three devices are expected in September this year, but full fledged availability of the iPhone 8 may not happen till December this year.
The information comes from Barclays analysts Blayne Curtis, Thomas O’Malley, Christopher Hemmelgarn and Jerry Zhang. “Suppliers generally had good things to say about the upcoming iPhone 8 launch (for our purposes iPhone 7s, iPhone 7s Plus, and iPhone Pro) as new features drive a more complicated manufacturing process and higher ASPs. We now believe that all three devices will feature wireless charging and will all be launched in the normal September timeframe, although the majority of iPhone Pro volumes may not be available until Q4,” reads a note from Barclays, obtained by MacRumours.
