iPhone 8 Could Be Announced Next Month At WWDC 2017?
We've been hearing a lot about Apple's upcoming iPhone 8, and pretty much everyone is expecting the handset to be announced sometime in September. Surprisingly, though, a JPMorgan analyst now has it that the iPhone 8 could very well be unveiled next month, at WWDC 2017, at the same time with iOS 11.
The JPMorgan analyst actually noted that there's a "high likelihood" that the next-gen iPhone would be officially showcased in June. Apple may want to do that in order to stir excitement among consumers, though this would probably have an unwanted effect on sales of current iPhone models. Of course, right now, there's no way of telling if this is indeed Apple's plan.
The last handset announced by Apple during a June WWDC event was the iPhone 4 from 2010. Since then, all new high-end iPhones were unveiled and released in September or October (the iPhone SE, introduced in March, doesn't count, since it's not a high-end model). All in all, seeing the iPhone 8 in June would be a shocker for everyone.
Even if the iPhone 8 will be announced at WWDC (and that's a big if), JPMorgan says that Apple isn't ready to launch it before September. Well, WWDC 2017 debuts in about a month, on June 5 - we'll see then just how much truth this fresh report contains.
