There have been plenty of Apple rumors surrounding the iPhone 8 release date and diehard Apple fans can't wait to get their hands on Apple's latest product. It's been reported previously on several occasions that Apple wants to place the Touch ID fingerprint sensor underneath the OLED display. They'll also get iOS updates for years to come.

And again following pre-orders, the new handset will most likely be released on Friday, September 22, with shipments going out to customers who have ordered the device. Unlike the OLED displays made by Samsung, those produced in Vietnam by an affiliate of Samsung Electronics specifically for the iPhone 8 have the touch panel outside the screen.

Ever since the iPhone 5 that launched five years ago in September 2012, Apple charged at least $649 for a new entry level memory iPhone.

Still, the PMI report showed input costs rising due to higher prices for energy, fuel and metals. Purchase price inflation accelerated for the first time in seven months during August.

According to some commentators, the iPhone 8 is expected to be a massive step forward in design and honour the device's 10th anniversary, but from indications the new phone may turn out to be a flop.

So Apple is banking very heavily on the fact that it's tenth anniversary iPhone 8 will be a hit - but a new survey from an investment firm has cast doubt on that. It is unclear whether the iPhone 8 will be part of the program. This could mean that the company will be ditching the regular Rose Gold color variant that has been seen on so many iPhone generations in the past.

The report further said that they have received a box shot from the Royal Dutch telecom provider KPN. It's also said to feature a glass back to facilitate inductive wireless charging. One of the key reasons for this maybe the OLED display.

Apple will nearly certainly shift the pricing of its iPhone lineup around to accommodate the new flagship iPhone 8 and the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus. These panels are purchased at a price that twice more than what Apple is paying for LCD panels for iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. It's expected to start at $649 for the standard size and $769 for the larger-screen iPhone 7S Plus with the same storage options and colors.
