The next rumors machine iPhones no stop. Having basically exhausted all the new features and hardware planned for the next handsets, it seems, the mainstream international press seems to have turned its attention to another very important aspect about the gadgets: its availability forecast.
A rumor a few weeks ago stated that the iPhone X production chain would be delayed and that the device would only reach consumers' hands a few weeks (or months) after the release of the iPhones 7s / 7s Plus, which in In theory, they would be simpler to produce because they have many features in common with today's 7/7 Plus iPhones. Well, now, another source contradicts this information and claims that no, the spectacular OLED-screen iPhone and other new features hit the shelves next to its more modest brothers.
According to DigiTimes, which cites information from the Chinese site Economic Daily News, the iPhone X production chain is perfectly aligned and meeting all deadlines, with the mass production of the handset starting in June as TSMC starts manufacturing at this time the wafers silicon for chip mounting A11. This opens the way for the smartphone to be available in October, along with other models to be released.
Apparently there was a problem in the production of the new device: the manufacture of a new type of circuit board was not yielding the expected results, so it was speculated that the new iPhone would "delay" (October when it is expected that new iPhones hit the market, but until Apple announces / promises something, not a "delay" itself). Now, however, the issue seems to have been resolved and consumers will have their new smartphones in their hands at the time that is already common in terms of iPhones late September or early October.
It's good to always remember, though, that all this is no more speculation than any information about Apple that doesn't come out of Apple's own figurative mouth. As for all this, I say, let's just sit down and when Tim Cook and his class have news. To tell us, we will be alert and excited to find out how Radiohead would say, without alarms and without surprises.
