"Our conversations with the Supply Chain suggest that the iPhone 8 will ship 3-4 weeks delayed given technological issues which Apple and its suppliers are working through", said the report, obtained by CNBC.
Fast Company claims its Apple source is describing a "sense of panic" inside the company as team's rush to bring all the new technologies together. We believe Apple's facial recognition solution should work from many angles and in low-light environments.
Fast Company says one of the features that might be delayed is wireless charging.
The leak sources claim that the problem with wireless charging and 3D scanner are connected with software, not hardware.
Many rumors say that Apple will introduce the iPhone 8 in September. But even though the hardware modules needed for the feature to work are good to go, the software reportedly isn't up to par yet. And according to Fast Company, that software is not yet working reliably.
Several reports in the past have claimed that Apple has been battling with a number of issues which might delay the top-end iPhone model beyond the estimated September timeframe. Apple rival Samsung Electronics Co Ltd (OTCMKTS:SSNLF) has been tapped to provide most of the displays for the new iPhone, but whether the quantities Apple needs will be available for launch remains up in the air. Because of this, it has yet to decide on where to place the Touch ID fingerprint reader.
A pair of fresh reports have arrived pointing to iPhone 8 production challenges, and appear to be preventing Apple Inc.'s (AAPL) shares from taking part in a Wednesday tech rally.
There's still some time for Apple to ideal the technology, and the fact that Qualcomm and Vivo have recently launched similar tech (though it's not yet available in a phone) is promising. If things aren't ironed out in time, the company may release the first batch of handsets with inactive wireless charging hardware and just activate the feature on a future update.
The portrait mode refers to a holdup in the iPhone 7 Plus's portrait mode, which was added a month after it was launched because the tech behind it wasn't ready at the time. But reportedly, the new device will not look like any previous iPhone because, it will adopt a new shape. You'll have to wait to actually get one.
