According to a report by JP Morgan analyst covering Apple, Rod Hall, Apple is expected to launch its iPhone 8 this autumn. All the while, Apple has been announcing its new iPhone in September during its annual keynote. Hall suggests that the delay in production will lead to a decrease in the initial number of the iPhone 8 available for purchase, however, it will not affect the launch date.

The iPhone 8 is expected to sport an OLED screen rather than the current LCD screen used on the iPhone 7 Plus.

The report also points to a higher retail price of the new iPhone. The average selling price may be as much as US$100 more, raising the price to US$1,100. 

According to various rumours and leaks, the new iPhone may feature a 5.8-inch OLED display, a faster A11 processor and a glass body with edge-to-edge display. It will also do away with the iconic home button. However, the much-anticipated Touch ID may be replaced by facial recognition.
