Apple CEO Tim Cook just gave us the strongest sign that the iPhone 8 release date will indeed happen in September.
Today's earnings call by the Cupertino company forecasts a strong quarter spanning July 1 through the end of September. That's the best sign iPhone 8 won't be late.
Apple projects revenue will be between $ 49 billion and $ 52 billion, according to the company's fiscal 2017 guidance. That's higher than its $ 45.4 billion this past quarter.
This helps dispel months of iPhone 8 delay rumors that had analysts guessing its so-called 10th anniversary iPhone won't come out until October, November or even 2018.
