Many people in the recent months (present company included) have had their doubts about Apple's ability to produce the iPhone 8 in time for its traditional mid-September launch window. And this has all to do with the tons of sketchy analyst predictions that have been flying around recently, such as this one from Bank of America, or this other one from Morgan Stanley (which directly contradicts its own words from just a month earlier).

But while limited device supplies still aren't completely out of the question, the chances of Apple delaying what will probably be the biggest iPhone launch since the original one ten years ago are — to put it mildly — slim.

Of course... the factories can churn a particular iPhone model out in high-numbers... but the raw-materials and individual Parts have to be there in sufficient quantity to sustain those numbers.

And Apple will still claim to have limited numbers to make the blind sheep wait weeks in front of the store.
