According to what has been heard lately, Apple is all set to kick-start the iPhone 8 production, much earlier than its expected schedules. Boutique research firm, BlueFin Research Partners, has strongly suggested that the iPhone 8 production will begin much before in order of time.
“The most intriguing data points that we have uncovered suggests that AAPL is ramping the next generation iPhones earlier than historical norms, although we have no indication that there has been any change in release plans for the iPhone 8/X”.
The report has also stated that the Cupertino giant is tightening its production lines for iPhone SE, iPhone 7, and iPhone 7 Plus, as it is focusing on shifting its resources to the manufacturing of its new series of devices.
BlueFin added in its report,
“Interestingly, our present reads suggest a 300% increase in iPhone 8/X builds in the June quarter, now sitting at 9M. As a result, overall June quarter builds have increased from 45M to 48M, with the sharp increase in iPhone 8 offset somewhat by modest declines in legacy models. In the past, builds of upcoming releases began in earnest early in the September quarter, so this is a departure from AAPL’s normal build cadence”.
It is widely conjectured that Apple is either aiming for a good stock of iPhone 8 smartphones before launching them in the markets or looking to have some extra time on hand to iron out the flaws and defects if any.
