According to rumours based on a report by Barron's Tech Trader Daily, Apple is going to start the production of the iPhone 8 much earlier than its usual production cycle. According to the tech buzz mills, Apple is supposed to come up with as many as three variants in the market of its new kid on the block: iPhone 8. We can expect a 5.8-inch iPhone, along with the regular 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone.

The report says: "The most intriguing data points that we have uncovered suggests that AAPL is ramping the next generation iPhones earlier than historical norms, although we have no indication that there has been any change in release plans for the iPhone 8/X. Builds have been pulled in a few months while aggregate next generation forecasts have increased 10% from last month to 122M. Additionally, AAPL has adjusted iPhone 7, 7 Plus, and SE production downward in preparation for the next generation launch."

Well, you don't need to be a rocket scientist to add things up. Rumours and speculations apart, the expectations are sky high as Apple readies to release an amazing piece of tech to mark their 10th anniversary. And this time it's going to need all the tinkering it can in its production cycle to make sure that it is able to supply the huge demand that the iPhone 8 is predicted to generate upon its release.

Facial recognition, wireless charging technology, curved OLED screen, polycarbonate plastic screen, augmented reality and so many other features will grace the new iPhone, according to the chatter.
