iPhone 8 mass production has reportedly started, device on track for regular September launch

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.

And according to the generally reliable leakster @OnLeaks, mass production of the device has already started:

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

Even after posting this, he still insists that Foxconn can only mass produce 5M per month. His calculator app is seriously broken. “We have been churning out 140,000 iPhone 6 Plus and 400,000 iPhone 6 every day, the highest daily output ever, but the volume is still not enough to meet the preorders,” http://bgr.com/2014/09/17/iphone-6-sales-demand-foxconn/

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.
