Apple to remove home button in upcoming high-end iPhone, report says

Apple to remove home button in upcoming high-end iPhone, report says

Here's everything you need to know about the iPhone 8 release.

Apple apparently has several iPhone designs in testing, including one that eliminates a home button - either physical or digital - entirely. However, don't take our word for it... Any major change in how the iPhone is used is likely to be greeted with excitement among tech fans and bafflement among everyday users.

iPhone is breaking up with the home button. Now, according to Bloomberg, we may have an answer.

Across the bottom of the screen there's a thin, software bar in lieu of the home button.

With different devices out for testing it is hard to say which one will end up as the final device at the launch but with these big variations on the look and interaction on the iPhone 8, it looks like Apple is making big changes to their next flagship.

Bloomberg, ahead of the all but certain September debut of the iPhone 8, has a breakdown of how it'll run. Customers have to click on the home button to come back to their starting apps grid. Just like the iPhone, the dock on the iPad right now also stretches from one end of the screen to the other, but with iOS 11, it seems that Apple has introduced a floating-ish dock to the iPad, and that could also be brought over onto the iPhone 8.

Apple is gearing up for the launch of its latest anniversary edition iPhone.

Pakistan using India as excuse to pursue Afghan policy
The minister also noted that if necessary he would visit the United States to discuss the issue with the country's leadership. Pakistan supports an Afghan-led, Afghan-owned politically negotiated solution for sustainable peace in Afghanistan , it said.


Apple has started development work with Samsung Display, the sole OLED supplier, and other parts makers earlier than usual, sources said. Some people are referring to these extra bits of display as "ears". At the moment, the iPhone 8 will be radically different from its predecessors.

When is the iPhone 8 release date?

This leads me to believe that, as far as Broadcom dollar content in the new iPhones goes, there's no difference between an iPhone 7s and a premium OLED iPhone. Perhaps each "ear" will have its own unique set of gestures when a user interacts with it.

The iPhone 8 will feature wireless charging, a glass build, a vertical dual camera setup, facial recognition and much more.

The facial recognition feature will also rely on infrared tech to scan faces in the dark, ideal for tweeting in bed.

Instead, the status bar will be split into left and right sides, which some Apple employees call "ears" internally.

In recent months, a screen that covers most of the front and face scanning technology have been rumored for the device. PearlID will use a front-facing infrared sensor to scan a user's face.
