These models, unlike the iPhone X, will be made available in the second wave after the U.S. and China, where pre-orders begin September 15 and sales from September 22. The iPhone 8 is seen as an improvement on the familiar, but not the future. Both these smartphone is an upgraded version of previous edition, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus and comes with a new glass and aluminum design in three colours - space grey, silver and gold. Ironically, an even longer delay in the arrival of the iPhone X could get consumers to throw in the towel and pick up the iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus instead.

With pre-orders starting October 27 and units shipping November 3, the iPhone X will be in extremely short supply for the holiday season, and possibly for several months following it. While the 64GB iPhone X is priced at Rs 89,000 in India, its 256GB variant sports a price tag of Rs 1,02,000.

Apple needs the iPhone to go out on October 27 so that it can go into the Christmas stockings of extremely rich spoilt kids.

A new tariff plan for iPhone 8 customers starting from Rs 799 has been launched.

The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus models in India will be available for Rs 64,000 onwards. Pre-orders for it aren't looking great, but many believe that it's just because the iPhone X is overshadowing tremendously.

Interestingly enough, Apple always employs more than one manufacturer for a particular component as it gives the tech giant better leverage over price negotiations and also allows a swift supply of the product thanks to a steady flow of components.

Apple iPhone X is expected to hit the shelves more than a month after iPhone 8.

While the iPhone X loses the home button in favor of an edge- to-edge Super Retina Display, the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus will stick with 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch displays.

Reliance Digital is offering 70% Buyback Scheme on purchase of the new iPhone. If inventory is as constrained as Caso implies, delivery dates could be pushed out weeks into November and December within in minutes of the pre-order launch. The shipping of the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus begins from 29th September 2017.
