cupertino - Apple has a state of panic around the new iPhone. Software issues could cause delay in the production and delivery of the next iPhone, reports Fast Company based on a source. If problems are not resolved quickly, it may even be possible for important features to be disabled at launch.
The new iPhone, which may be called iPhone 8, iPhone Pro or iPhone X, is expected to be presented this fall. Presumably, the device will accommodate several new technologies that have not been seen in iPhones. However, some of them would be difficult to work well with the iPhone.
One of those new features is wireless charging. The software for this is not yet complete. If it fails to make the wireless charging work well, then Apple might just ship the first wireless charging hardware. However, the hardware will be disabled and will only be activated at a later time.
Similar problems would arise with the new 3D sensor, which Bloomberg press office says on the front of the device, and recognizes the user's face to unlock the iPhone. Apple would be having trouble working the sensor properly, again not the hardware but the software being the problem.
Also, the cover screen, with which iPhones have not been equipped until now, would cause Apple to take care. The problem is that there are only a few oled production facilities. Meanwhile, Apple would not be out where the fingerprint sensor should come, as the cover screen occupies most of the front of the phone. The sensor is expected to end up in the screen.
