The iPhone 8, or whatever it ends up being called, is set to be announced next week at Apple’s September 12 event. That much we know. What we don’t know is when we can expect it to be shipping to customers. That may not be too far off as new images suggest Foxconn is already shipping out units to the United States.
Images posted by the site MyDrivers show the popular Silicon Valley delivery service Morrison express packing up pallets to be shipped out of Foxconn’s Zhengzhou Technology Park where it assembles iPhones.
The images in question were poor quality, which means it’s tough to read the manifest, but it lends itself to the belief that these are in fact iPhones being shipped to the U.S.
Nothing was confirmed from the images, but it does fit in nicely with the timeline of Apple ramping up shipments ahead of the Apple event and the subsequent availability of the iPhones is two or three weeks. With the event being held on September 12, it has been speculated that September 15 will be the date for pre-orders with September 22 being the date the new iPhones go on sale.
Again, nothing was confirmed, but Apple will have to eventually ship iPhones State-side, and it might have already started to do so, according to the images.
