Digitimes, citing unnamed sources, reported that Apple suppliers were shipping just 40 percent of the components originally ordered for the premium phone. The new version starts at $799, compared with $769 for last year's model. Don't be surprised if those buyers pass on the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus and opt to wait for iPhone X sales to begin before throwing their hard-earned money at Apple.

Compared to other smartphone making companies that are usually known to emphasize on specifications during its launch events, Apple does otherwise.

Apple is not releasing iPhone 8 sales numbers, but last week when the iPhone 8 officially hit store shelves, there were worrying signs.
