iPhone ‘Home’ button rumored to be heading for the exit
The iPhone 7 just lost the headphone jack and it looks like the next iPhone is about to lose something else. Rumors have it that the iconic home button is about to make an exit.
Since the controversial removal of the 3.5mm headphone jack from the iPhone 7, rumors have started to circulate on the internet that the flagship iPhone model for 2017 will be replacing the home button with a fingerprint scanner and a virtual equivalent, reports TechRadar.
Apart from the home screen, past rumors hinted at a curved AMOLED screen and glass back.
The iPhone is already at it’s 7th iteration and already Apple has done something near unthinkable with the departure from the 3.5mm headphone jack. It’s not too difficult to imagine the company going for an even bolder design choice for the iPhone’s 10th version. Either way Apple promised that they’ll be releasing a groundbreaking product in 2017, so consumers can only wait and see. Alfred Bayle.
