    Interesting if they do pull a "portrait mode" and wait to release these via software later down the road. iPhone 8 could launch without software support for wireless charging and 3D sensor

    For those of us with the Apple upgrade program every month of delay will cost us $, I would support release and upgrade software when ready

    That is an interesting take on it. I wasn't even thinking about the apple upgrade program and the effects.

    I think that's the safest way to get Phones out quickly. If they perfect everything it won't be out till nov/dec.

    I feel like if wireless charging and the 3d/AR was something they wanted, it should have been a focus throughout development so they could get it out once the iPhone launches, not months later.

    And we all know they will never get it perfected. Technology just doesn’t work that way

    They didn't make AR that big of an issue with the iPP so I don't think they'll do the same. I feel like the main attraction will be the screen.

    But with the rumors of the enhanced back camera taking advantage of this for regular pictures seems they would really be hamstringing themselves by waiting to release that feature.

    They did the same with portrait mode so I don't see why they wouldn't do it again.

    It's funny to me that Apple customers are ok with this, but if Microsoft or Google did this their customers would be upset, and Apple customers would be laughing at them.

    I for one, would be in the wait until all the features are working correctly. It is one thing to have a bug here or there, but to have a large function present, but not working by design seems silly to me. To be fair, I'm not buying it either way, so it really doesn't matter to me.

    I agree. Something that they are going to tout as being a selling feature, not having it ready at launch seems like a bad move to me. And you are right, if this was any other company they would be getting bashed for it

    I'm thinking more like Jan/Feb and then I'm no longer confident in Apple to release a finished product to be honest. The question is "do I want to pay upwards of $1,400 for an unfinished iPhone?"....I don't think so.

    Agree. If it was the regular price, I could deal with some things not being ready at launch. But when you are putting down that kind of $$ that better be a finished product, not half baked just to reach some sort of "deadline"
