Rumor: iPhone 8 not delayed, enters trial production

Despite multiple rumors that the iPhone 8 could be delayed over design and production issues, tech blogger Benjamin Geskin claims to have a source who confirms Foxconn has “started trial production of 3 new iPhones (7s,7s Plus, “8”)” and that the “iPhone 8 is not delayed.” Many of the rumors around Apple’s possible iPhone 8 delays center around problems with the embedded Touch ID sensor, but Geskin claims, “Fingerprint identification was under-screen in testing machine,” which is being produced at a rate of “about 200 units per day” at this point. Geskin seems confident about Apple’s production schedule, but his optimism comes amid reports that Apple’s suppliers are struggling to meet the company’s demand for components, so time will tell.
