    Amid reports that Apple is struggling to work out software kinks associated with the iPhone 8’s 3D cameras, a new research note from Merrill Lynch (via CNBC) claims that the launch of Apple’s next-gen iPhone may be pushed back by three to four weeks. If this timetable pans out, it would mean that the iPhone 8 may not arrive on store shelves until mid-October. While this is certainly frustrating news for anyone eager to upgrade, a mid-October launch isn’t all that bad given previous claims that the iPhone 8 release might be pushed all the way back to November.

    As for the impetus behind the delay, analysts Wamsi Mohan and Stefano Pascale echo previous reports which claim that Apple is still trying to get a grip on a few technical hurdles involving the iPhone 8. Citing anonymous sources within Apple’s supply chain, Mohan and Pascale believe the technical issues at hand center on the iPhone 8’s Touch ID sensor and the device’s 3D camera sensors.

    More at iPhone 8 release date reportedly delayed to October

    Why do people buy an Apple product:confused:

    I assume they want the quality & performance. Apple is unlikely to rush products that are not yet ready. Most of the delays I've read about is tied to the software. They may release the product followed later with the SW updates that will unlock the features.

    If you want a dangerous that is rushed to market there are other brands that do that e.g. Samsung Remember the problems with the Note fiasco ;)

    There are also many Chinese brands which copy the physical appearance of iPhones but without the the SW features.

    I don't understand why ppl must get the latest stuff.. I learnt from bad experience that it's better to wait 6 months after the launch to get it..by than all the bad news n kinks will hopefully be worked out..new phones have a high chance of issues when first launched..look at note 7 n the gay phone antenna gate..
