The Apple iPhone 8 may not have a Home button

26 August, 2016 Apple


While the entire world is busy with speculating about the iPhone 7's unveiling next month, Bloomberg has recently published a report on the iPhone 8, which is probably still in the drawing boards. Even though the iPhone 7 would most likely resemble the current-gen iPhones in many ways, the iPhone 8 might be a different beast altogether.


At the core of the redesign lies the decision to remove the physical Home button usually found in the middle of the bottom panel. Obviously it will still be there, but as a part of the display. This would mean that the future iPhones may have nothing but an OLED edge-to-edge display (as per rumors) in front. The touch-sensitive sensors integrated in the display will give the user a vibrating feedback to mimic the sensation of actually pressing a physical Home button. Since we have already seen something like this with the MacBook trackpads, we imagine that it is quite a plausible possibility. The OLED panels on the other hand are definitely coming, but whether they will make it to the iPhone 2017 models is something that we will have to wait to find out more on.
