iPhone 8 Might be produced earlier than we first thought | Mobile phone latest news Google+ Follow Smartfonefreaks on Twitter

Everyone and their mother is rubbing their collective hands in anticipation of the iPhone 8 which is slated to come out later this year, but now they might now have cause to holler and whoop.

According to information gathered by BlueFin Research Partners and shared by Barron's Tech Trader Daily, Apple may begin the production of the iPhone 8 sooner than usual.

While there has been some indication that Apple will step up production of the iPhone 8 starting in June, this does not automatically translate to the phone coming out earlier, so...err...while you can whoop and holler, it might not mean much.

According to reports, there has been 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.

Now looking at the information critically, it really does make sense for Apple to step up production especially considering just how many changes and new features the iPhone 8 is supposed to have. 

Starting production earlier means that Apple will have enough time to improve yield rates and work out manufacturing issues, and could potentially lead to better supply when the iPhone 8 launches in September.

What we know of the iPhone 8 so far is that it could feature an edge-to-edge OLED display, perhaps with curved edges, and a glass backing.

Wireless charging in some form is expected to be included in the device, but it is not yet clear if it will be Apple Watch-style inductive charging or a longer-range over-the-air charging solution. Also it's said to have a 
 faster, more efficient A11 processor, advanced biometrics like facial recognition or iris scanning, a new Taptic engine and 3D Touch advancements, and camera improvements. 

We will just have to wait and see how this all pans out. It is hoped that an earlier production helps Apple produce a proper phone that they can be proud of.
