Some critics cited Apple's decision to delay the launch of the iPhone X, which the company has dubbed "the future of the smartphone".

"We believe the fullscreen design and facial recognition features will drive replacement demand for the iPhone X", Kuo explains.

Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities said in his latest research note that complete supply-demand equilibrium for the iPhone X won't be achieved until at least the first half of 2018 due to serious supply constraints. A11 Bionic also integrates an Apple-designed GPU with a three-core design that delivers up to 30 percent faster graphics performance than the previous generation.

During Apple's iPhone X launch presentation, Apple marketing chief Phil Schiller described Face ID as "better" than Touch ID.

While production delays tend to be commonplace with any new iPhone release, the delay associated with the iPhone X is somewhat unprecedented. In fact, it may be the most wanted smartphone maker on the face of the planet.

If you're eager to put down $1,000 or more for Apple's new bezel-less, OLED-equipped iPhone X, you'll probably want to be awake and ready at the company's preorder page come October 27th. That's right - they think these 10 stocks are even better buys. The screen-to-body ratio of this gizmo is the highest ever seen till now. With iOS 11, both iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus support HEIF and HEVC for up to two times compression and storage for twice the photos and videos. iPhone 8 Plus features dual 12-megapixel cameras and introduces Portrait mode with Portrait Lighting, bringing dramatic studio lighting effects to iPhone, allowing customers to capture stunning portraits with a shallow depth-of-field effect in five different lighting styles. Pricing and Availability ● iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will be available in space gray, silver and an all-new gold finish in increased 64GB and 256GB capacity models starting at $699 (US) from apple.com and Apple Stores and is also available through Apple Authorized Resellers and select carriers (prices may vary). With pre-orders of the Apple iPhone X not beginning until October 27th, Apple will actually ship "0" devices in the third quarter, down from the two million to four million previously expected.
