For anyone who has been anxiously awaiting the release of Apple's upcoming iPhone 8, sorry, but you may have to wait even longer than you thought.

(If this is the first you're hearing of Apple's next phone, check out more details here.) The company's forthcoming product has been beset by rumors of delays, and the latest one is a doozy.

According to Business Insider, a report has been making the rounds saying that the iPhone 8, which has been rumored to drop on various dates throughout Fall 2017, may now end up getting pushed to 2018. The report comes from the news site ValueWalk, and was cited last week by analysts at Deutsche Bank, lending credibility to the veracity of the report.

It notes that while the iPhone 7S and 7S Plus are scheduled to arrive in September, people within Apple manufacturer Foxconn don't believe that Apple will be placing orders for them to manufacture iPhone 8s for this year.

As Business Insider notes, a delay like this from Apple would be surprising and, ultimately, they say it is "unlikely" that the phone won't arrive until 2018. However, the fact that Deutsche Bank is standing behind the rumor has everyone on-edge and, of course, dreading any additional wait. (After all, the phone does look pretty awesome.)
