A Fast Company article on Tuesday said Apple engineers and designers have been working around the clock to fix software problems related to wireless charging and 3D sensing in the company's upcoming flagship smartphone, which has been referred to variously as the iPhone 8, iPhone Pro, iPhone X and other names.

There is no official release date yet for Apple's iPhone 8, but fans are expecting to get a first look at and more information about it a few weeks before the IFA trade show in Berlin. However, there is now limited manufacturing capacity for OLED display panels.

However, these issues did not prevent the iPhone 7 Plus from launching on time, and the delayed camera software was a minor inconvenience that didn't impact core functionality.

Although Touch ID is the favorite whipping boy for whatever delays or flaws the iPhone 8 might, it is apparently far from being the only source of worry for Cupertino.
