Rumor: "iPhone 8" may hit stores months after announcement; white front and Touch ID on the power button would be unlikely

I have to be honest: neither do I, who get paid to keep up with all the news related to the Apple world day after day and therefore already have some practice in organizing my brain to archive the news in the most practical way, I am able to follow the vicissitudes of the machine of rumors about the mystic “IPhone 8”. It's such a speculation here, a source close to the subject, an expert who belies a rumor on the other side so much that I honestly see no one else to believe except, of course, Apple itself, in a few months.

However, if it is to be believed before the official announcement, the Japanese blog Macotakara A very promising option our colleagues on the other side of the world are not usually making a point, with reliable sources and almost always accurate rumors. And, after months of not saying anything about the current state of affairs in the planning of the "iPhone 8", they are back with a report that brings some really appetizing information.

According to the report, Apple will, as expected, present the “model premium”With the likely“ iPhones 7s / 7s Plus ”at an event in September; This more expensive device, however, is expected to take a few months before it reaches stores, the publication cites that the release could be for the first half of the first fiscal quarter of 2018, which begins late October this year. In addition, there would be a great possibility that the initial period of sales would be limited by lower demand stocks.

About the device itself, the site claims that the "iPhone 8" * should not, as several recent rumors have already fanned, bring a white-front option apparently, it would not even be possible to produce the device this way, according to the report (the reasons for this impossibility, however, were not explained).

But the chance of Ma moving the Touch ID to the button off the iPhone also seems unlikely, according to the Macotakara; the Japanese claim that the parts related to this component do not bring any special sensor layers or anything, suggesting that the button will be, as usual, just a button at all. On the other hand, the site did not mention whether Apple could capture the golden egg hen and implement the biometric sensor underneath the screen, as we had hoped, or have to move it to a less appropriate location (or even extinguish it). completely).

At least, the report reiterates that the next iPhone will actually bring a face recognition system, which may complement or even replace the Touch ID.

Anyone willing to change their bets or have their brains already melted completely with so much speculation?
