The iPhone 8 reportedly won't launch with all the goodies

Reports indicate that if the tech giant is unable to pull it off by the specified internal launch date, then the highly anticipated iPhone 8 might suffer a long delay, which will inevitably give its competitors an advantage.

Included in the list of woes the company is apparently facing is wireless charging.

A new report claims Apple is struggling to iron out software issues that are rendering wireless charging and another major feature unusable for now. What's been consistent with these rumors is that the Apple's latest flagship device will come with an entirely new design along with new technologies and features. This lines up to a very similar Tweet published by Apple watcher John Gruber just a couple of days ago. Sources claim that there is "a sense of panic in the air" at Apple as engineers scramble to iron out software bugs that are affecting wireless charging and 3D facial recognition. The feature has been rumored to be a replacement for a Touch ID fingerprint sensor that also isn't operating the way Apple had hoped. While there are no hardware related issues, some software issues demand to be solved right away.

The source believes Apple will likely have the 3D software working in time.

But that's not all.

The one piece of technology that nobody was courageous enough to deploy in phones this year is a fingerprint sensor placed under the display.

Bank of America Merrill Lynch lowers its Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone shipment estimates for this year by 11M after a supply chain visit, according to CNBC.

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.

Preparing to celebrate the iPhone's ten-year anniversary, Apple will reportedly pull out all the stops, hardware-wise.

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, a reliable voice when it comes to future Apple iPhone features, flat out doesn't think Apple is going to include Touch ID in the OLED iPhone altogether. A source told Fast Company that it may end up shipping the iPhone 8 with the hardware installed.

Possibly the most exciting feature on the iPhone 8 is its screen. Last year's iPhone 7 Plus's Portrait Mode wasn't enabled until after the phone went on sale.

Hosseini says that "recent checks confirms [sic] the recent media reports regarding Apple facing integration challenges with the OLED version of [iPhone 8]", and notes that those challenges pertain specifically to the integration of the fingerprint scanner into the display.
