iPhone 8 not delayed, claims well connected Apple leaker

Apple’s iPhone 8 is not delayed and has entered trial production ahead of the scheduled September due date, it has been claimed.

That’s according to Benjamin Geskin, a serial tech leaker with connections close to Apple’s supply chain.

On Twitter, Geskin said sources at Apple's key manufacturing partner Foxconn told him that the iPhone 8, along with the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus, had entered production.

The source said Foxconn was making as many as 200 iPhone 8 units a day.

Geskin also said that the units had Touch ID embedded within the screen, flying in the face of recent rumours that Apple was planning to ditch its fingerprint scanner in favour of 3D facial recognition.

Apple is expected to unveil the iPhone 8 in the next two months. Many insiders believe supply will be severely constrained, with some predicting the device won’t be readily available until November.
