Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty said that “despite investor concerns that the OLED iPhone shipments” would push its release to November or even next year, the management “sounded confident on upcoming product launches this fall.” The earlier release window is expected to generate more sales for the company for the fourth quarter.

New design will make consumers want to upgrade

Analysts also point out that even if the iPhone 8 gets a delayed release date, it will initiate a “supercycle”. They are confident that the company’s new design approach will make it very attractive for consumers. The public has always expected that just like before, Apple will release an “S” model before it moves on to the next significant upgrade.
