Apple iPhone 8 is one of the most anticipated smartphones this year, and considering all the new features Apple is integrating with the latest iteration of the iPhone – It should be. And by the looks of it, Apple is pushing all out at every front to make the iPhone 8 not only up to the mark but to exceed all the expectations. But the journey so far has not been an easy ride for the Apple Engineering and Design teams – from the start Apple team has faced problems relating to Hardware features as well as software integration. According to the latest report from Fast Company highlight the further struggles with some of the key features to be integrated in the iPhone 8 and how Apple teams are frantically working to iron out the issues before the launch of the phone later this year.
According to Last evening’s report Apple is working tirelessly working to fix all the software issues plaguing the phone before the launch so as to have a flawless launch without compromising on any of the features at the launch. It also wants to avoid any production delays and complications due to such issues. The report even went on to mention that the Apple teams are working ‘Feverishly’ because if the software problems aren’t resolved quickly, then the new flagship iPhone could even launch with major features disabled.
One of the major issues Apple is struggling with is iOS integration with iPhone 8’s front facing 3D Sensor and speculations are that Apple might miss this one at the launch and enable it via a software update in the future. Another issue which might be missed at the launch is the Wireless charging, for which Apple has been facing some serious issues. And lastly the touch ID, where Apple is still trying to figure out what will be the most appropriate location for the Touch ID, though most of the speculations are that it may be placed under the Display itself.
The iPhone 8 is expected to be announced around the last quarter of this year.
