Lately, the Apple rumour mill has been speculating that the company is working on two new iPhone models: an overhauled iPhone 8, said to have a new bezel-less design,  OLED display, wireless charging, some sort of augmented reality features, and a more pedestrian iPhone 7S model.

But while there have been reports that the iPhone 8 would be delayed until later in the Autumn than usual, a new research note from Deutsche Bank suggests that the new iPhone might not be out until as early as 2018.

According to the research note, “several supply chain reports have suggested that key component shortages and technical challenges could delay the release of a high-end iPhone .”

Deutsche Bank also cites a ValueWalk report that claims sources within Foxconn are only expecting Apple to order parts for an updated iPhone 7S and 7S Plus for the Autumn.
