Elsewhere, the image shows a new dual lens camera which is positioned vertically, as opposed to horizontally as it is on the iPhone 7 Plus.

The one risk, though, is that the longer that it takes for Apple to meet demand, the more time Apple's competitors will have to mount responses and bring more competitive products and technologies to market.
