Software issues with the iPhone 8 might lead to launching it with disabled key features

Software issues with the iPhone 8 might lead to launching it with disabled key featuresFast Company reports that according to an unnamed source "with knowledge of the situation" the guys at Apple are hectically working on fixing software issues with the upcoming iPhone 8, which is the company's 10th anniversary iPhone. If those issues are not fixed, the odds that the device is launched without some key features are high. These include the wireless charging feature, which might be deactivated upon launching the device and activated later in a similar fashion to the camera's Portrait Mode in iPhone 7 Plus. There are similar issues with the 3D sensor, which according to the reports, should be a front-facing one, and again there are software problems that need to be rectified for it to work properly. In addition to that, delays are also expected due to the lack of enough OLED panels for the new model, which will be Apple's first iPhone with such a display. Rumours state that there will be an under-display fingerprint sensor as well. In addition to the iPhone 8, it is expected that Apple will announce two other smartphones that succeed last year's models and will be named iPhone 7S and 7S Plus, respectively.Source
