In the Network appeared new details about the iPhone 8”

And a new report from Fast Company suggests that with only two months to go, AAPL engineers are struggling to get key features to work.

And even if both of those features are disabled at launch, arguably the biggest feature of the iPhone 8 is seemingly in better shape, with the source saying that "in all likelihood" the fingerprint scanner would be built into the screen.

Software problems with new features, such as 3D face detection, may ultimately cause significant delays for the company.

This is the biggest problem Apple faces with the launch of iPhone 8, expected in September. All the necessary hardware components were already inside the iPhone 7 Plus, but Apple had to release a software update to activate Portrait Mode.

There's a sense of panic at Apple as iPhone 8 problems persist, reports Fast Company. The iPhone 8 will reportedly feature inductive charging, likely based on the Qi wireless charging standard or a variant of it. But this design means the company has to either relocate the Touch ID fingerprint sensor to the back of the new iPhone (as Samsung did with the Galaxy S8), somehow embed it under the OLED display, or replace it with another biometric security method -that 3D sensor.

Fortune confirmed that Apple Inc. would use OLED technology in its new iPhone series. So instead of that, the iPhone 8 would rely on facial recognition technology. This time, however, it isn't the new hardware that's the problem but the software using those hardware.

Many rumors say that Apple will introduce the iPhone 8 in September. The report suggests that these are software issues and employees at the company are working around the clock to fix it.

Hosseini says that, with respect to the premium iPhone 8, Apple "adding too many features appears to be backfiring". However, there is now limited manufacturing capacity for OLED display panels. But reportedly, the new device will not look like any previous iPhone because, it will adopt a new shape.

Foxconn employees also confirmed that the iPhone 8 will somewhere between the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus in terms of size, although the new design will shave off some inches by removing the top and bottom bezels, and will feature a larger screen than the iPhone 7 Plus as a result (seen above).

Beyond those major manufacturers, Apple - and other smartphone makers - are facing stiff competition from Chinese manufacturers who often sell their phones at much lower price points than Apple. Because of this, it has yet to decide on where to place the Touch ID fingerprint reader. Along with the iPhone 8, the company will announce the iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus.
