IPhone 8 could make you wait to unlock two key upgrades

If this report is accurate, it seems as though Apple is under tremendous pressure to deliver the iPhone 8 that it wants and what its fans expects. So, for customers that absolutely must have Touch ID and don't find all the other features that will be exclusive to the OLED iPhone (OLED display, full-face display, 3-D sensing, and so on) all that compelling, Apple will still offer a solid product set. And according to Fast Company, that software is not yet working reliably.

Included in the list of woes the company is apparently facing is wireless charging. The iPhone 8-let's call it that for now-will reportedly use a type of inductive charging, where the phone sits directly on a separate charging device.

Apple has also run into problems with its new front facing 3D sensor, which is reportedly being utilised in lieu of a TouchID fingerprint scanner. Again, the sensor hardware is not the problem, but rather the accompanying software.

Basically every new feature or technology Apple is rumored to introduce with its iPhone 8 is rumored to be late or problematic in this or that regard.

Whatever shape the iPhone 8 launches in you shouldn't have too long to wait for it, with a September or October launch likely.

Apple has faced declining revenues over the past several years, and the iPhone remains the company's best-selling brand.

The Touch ID sensor might delay iPhone 8 OLED production even further, assuming Apple still plans to include it into the screen.

As for the location of the Touch ID fingerprint reader, which some claim will be missing from the new phone, the Fast Company source says that "in all likelihood" it will be embedded under the display.

The Apple iPhone 8 will be going up against the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, which is expected to be unveiled next month.

One of the first rumours to circulate about the iPhone 8 was the inclusion of an all-glass OLED display. This year, we may be getting three devices, including one that could cost as much as $1,200.

Apple may finally add support for wireless charging with the iPhone 8, following news that Foxconn is researching the technology for Apple devices. Insiders believe that the hardware giant will use the Qi wireless charging standard, or a variant.

Seriously, though... with a price like that, the new iPhone better come with wireless capabilities, a wireless station, and a little blender ready to whip up frosé at the drop of a dime - but I digress.

If they don't get it right in time, it could mean a delay in the 10th anniversary iPhone's production and delivery.
