At this point, it’s no secret that Apple is working on the iPhone 8 — a premium and more expensive iPhone that would launch alongside the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus in September this year.
Multiple reports from this week alone have hinted at the possibility of Apple delaying the launch of the iPhone 8 due to component issues and software not being ready in time.
Until last week, there were rumors that the iPhone 8 may either come with a fingerprint scanner integrated in the OLED display or Apple may place it at the rear like the Samsung Galaxy S8.

Earlier today, Apple confirmed that the iOS 10.2.1 update greatly helped in reducing random shutdown issues that many iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s users were facing on their devices. As per the data received by the company, the “improvements” made in iOS 10.2.1 led to random shutdown issues reducing by more than 80 percent on the iPhone 6s and by over 70 percent on the iPhone 6.
