The tech giant has an iPhone Upgrade Program that allows customers to get a new iPhone when it comes out for just a little over $30 per month.

LG Display, Apple, and Samsung Display have refused to comment on what is going on, but according to statistics taken from April of 2016, Samsung holds a 97.7 percentage in global OLED production, meaning the vast number of resources at the company's disposal will be handy for Apple, but at a price tag.

The iPhone 8/Edition was plagued by production glitches early in the manufacturing process, according to a new report from the WSJ.

These attempts to embed the Touch ID in the display led to some delays, so production was put back by about a month just for this reason. iPhone 8's production was further delayed after Apple made a decision to include OLED screens into its new phones, similar to those used by Samsung.
