Apple's iPhone 7's sales performance is strikingly similar to its predecessor's-and that's not necessarily a good thing, according to a new study. Once these materials arrive at Apple headquarters, reports should provide further indication of the potential iPhone releases.

Per a fresh report from Nikkei Asian Review, Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) suppliers tasked with producing components for the company's upcoming OLED iPhone 8 "has hit a snag as suppliers struggle to ideal key components including display, wireless charging and printed circuit boards". The image, however, doesn't show any rear Touch ID button, suggesting that it will be embedded in the front. The report also adds that Foxconn is making modules that will be incorporated into the handsets, but it is unclear whether all iPhone models slated for release in 2017 will come with the new function. LG Display is also supplying screens for the Apple Watch and a significant affect may occur if the reports extend to be true.

Several tipsters shared an image that is reportedly sourced from Weibo, showing the rumored schematics and interior of the OLED iPhone 8.

CIRP's data suggests there might be more for Apple to worry about than how its iPhone 7 compares to the iPhone 6s.

In addition, analysts from the massive investment bank JP Morgan have suggested that Apple is now working with Broadcom on wireless transporting for new iPhone units.

This kind of technology may be a ways off, but once it gets here, it could open up a new world for wireless charging.

Like other wireless charging techniques, including more conventional "inductive" charging, the design would require both a transmitter and receiver to work.

Recent reports claim that the Touch ID fingerprint sensor and 3D recognition sensor of the upcoming iPhone 8 are causing headaches to its manufacturers. "With only 10 percent of 7 and 7 Plus buyers switching from an Android phone, now 3-6 months after the launch of those models in September 2016, we see how the premiere iPhone models sell mostly to the installed base of iPhone owners".

The router would essentially use dual polarization and dual frequency antennas, which could help offer a longer charging range - so eventually you could be able to walk around your house while your device is charging one day.
