iPhone 7 Could Sport A New Kind Of Home Button

X

More potential features of the upcoming iPhone 7 are emerging, with reports indicating that the home button could be in for a significant change.Business Insider has reported that analysts at Cowen and Company believe the iPhone 7 will be decked out with a Force Touch home button, meaning Apple would do away with the physical button, with the button instead sitting flush on the phone.

Force Touch is Apple’s technology which can distinguish between a light tap and a deep press.

Separately, 9to5Mac has reported that the home button will feature haptic feedback to simulate a click, employing the same approach as Force Touch.

Suggestions that the home button will be replaced follow previous reports that Apple will drop the headphone jack, which in turn has seen fans go online, protesting its potential exclusion.

The Lightning connector is set to serve as a port for both charging the phone and for connecting headphones, The Wall Street Journal had reported last week, citing people familiar with the matter.

Meanwhile, it has previously been reported that Apple could extend its iPhone product cycle, taking three years between full-model changes of the devices, with Apple’s 2017 model likely to see major changes.
