Apple’s long–awaited iPhone 8 may not hit shelves until October or November, it has emerged, due to a number of technical issues with the handset.
A report from China’s Economic Daily News (EDN), citing sources close to Apple’s production line, claims the tech giant is having problems with the iPhone 8’s curved OLED screen and 3D sensing system for its cameras.

In recent weeks, a number of rumours, from both anonymous sources and market analysts, have pointed towards Apple delaying the iPhone 8.
Some have suggested the company could unveil the iPhone 8 in September, but hold back its release until significantly later in the year. Perhaps even as late as November.
Assuming this happens it would mean the phone would be revealed alongside the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus, which are also tipped to land in September.
A later launch would allow Apple to build hype, but may affect the wider sales of the iPhone, which have flagged over the past year.
According to some tech-watchers, the iPhone 8 could be the first Apple phone to sell for over £1,000.
