Usually there negative rumors out of the Asian supply chain. Not this time.

The rumblings of potential delays Apple faces with the new iPhone 8 are possibly not existing. A Chinese newspaper reports that the new iPhone is right on schedule.

Apple will unveil the new iPhones in September, and the sale begins in October, according to a Chinese-language Economic Daily News (EDN) report, quoted by Digitimes.

TSMC will begin to fabricate the wafer starts needed for the production of A11 CPUs on June 10 and to deliver the chips in volume quantity in the second half of July, the report says. Apple's iPhone assemblers Foxconn Electronics, Winstron and Pegatron are accelerating the recruitment and training of new workers in China in preparation of mass production of the new iPhones.

The report does not mention the iPhone 7S and the iPhone 8 specifically. So far delay rumors have only been associated with the iPhone 8. Rumor say that Apple has issues with the fingerprint scanner integrated in the screen.
