I would rather have the iPhone 8 launch slightly delayed than see the device's fingerprint scanner moved to the back of the phone.

The latest update about Apple's upcoming 10 anniversary surprise phone, the iPhone 8, is reportedly going to be delayed, at least for the delivery.

Finally, Apple could delay production, but announce the handset alongside the "iPhone 7s" series. Apple will be setting a competitive price range, so a $1,000 smartphone appears to be more improbable, the report details.

"This is not the first time that we've heard about a potential delay with a new iPhone; however, our contact was so emphatic about the delay that we are taking this data point more seriously". Fast Company first reported the iPhone 8, which will feature an 5.8-inch OLED display panel, and that it will cost upwards of $1000 compared to other models like the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus which won't feature the new panels. As of now, the most outrageous priced model of the iPhone 7 is the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus, powered with 256GB of internal memory, which offers for £919 in the UK.

PrEP is approved in Scotland
It followed a series of legal battles in England over whether the NHS or local authorities should pay for the medication. In 2015, a study in the Lancet found that PrEP was 86% effective in preventing new cases of HIV among high-risk adults.

Soon after the release of the Apple iPhone 6s, some users started reporting about a battery issue and Apple later came out to confirm that there is an issue with some of the units and that they will be working to compensate their users for the faulty smartphone. The report added that Apple could sell as many as 90 million iPhones in the last three months of 2017.

Apple is expected to follow the trend and also has agreed a deal with the display division of Samsung for its iPhone 8 160 million curved displays that are anticipated to launch this autumn. That would easily make it the costliest iPhone to date.

Initially, iPhone 8 is expected to hit the market in September.
