Apple Kicks Home Button to the Curb on iPhone 8

Apple Kicks Home Button to the Curb on iPhone 8

Instead of pressing the home button to perform functions such as calling up Siri and viewing app screens, users will maneuver around the iPhone 8 using gestures.

In addition to eliminating any semblance of a home button, Gurman also notes the iPhone 8's OLED screen will be taller and larger than the iPhone 7 Plus, though the phone itself will be sized close to the iPhone 7.

Meanwhile, Apple is expected to launch the iPhone 8 on September 12. The Company's products and services include iPhone, iPad, Mac, iPod, Apple TV, a portfolio of consumer and professional software applications, the iOS and OS X operating systems, iCloud, and a variety of accessory, service and support offerings. With Apple expected to eliminate the concept of a home button entirely and effectively turn its flagship iPhone into one big screen, numerous classic iPhone user interactions will have to change along with it.

New iPhones typically go on sale within two weeks of Apple's launch events. Assuming that the September 12th is the new iPhone 8 launch date, then here are all the iPhone 8-related keynote dates you need to know. The image above suggests that the previous leaks were accurate to suggest the phone will have an L-shaped battery.

What can 3D sensors do?

Apple is also said to be planning updated versions of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, presumably dubbed iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus.

Rivals such as Samsung already offer wireless charging - with phones topping up simply by being placed on a compatible charging pad.

Last month RBC Capital said it also sees Apple's market value rising to US$1trn as it expects upside to the release of the new phone.

The report cautions that it could only say Apple has "tested" the new gesture controls and that it's likely one of multiple solutions for making up for the lack of a home button. That means having a way to slide the display halfway down-currently achieved by double-tapping the home button-is more important than ever. The power button on the right side is physically longer to make it easier to press. Facial scanning technology already has been seen on other phones, including Samsung Corp.'s (SSNLF) Galaxy S8 smartphone, released in April, and its Note 8 phone, expected to launch September 15. Bloomberg's report clears it up by stating that the cutout will be visible while people are using apps and Apple won't hide it by giving the status bar at the top with a black background.
