The new iPhone 8 is meant to feature inductive wireless charging, but with a "sense of panic" at Apple over not being able to fix these major issues, the company might be forced to launch the iPhone 8 without it's new wireless charging feature.

Apple would stage the wireless charging feature into a future iOS 11.1 update, months after the initial launch of the iPhone 8. This would mean the iPhone 8 is gimped at a hardware and software level, holding features it is capable of but Apple is stopping them from working due to what appears to be a major flaw.
