Apple refuses to iPhone 7 Home button to make it thinner

For these qualities the company is willing to sacrifice the autonomy of the mobile device. In the words of Ive, Apple's smartphone modest autonomy on a single charge can not be considered a disadvantage because the resource allows users to have a thin, light and stylish gadget.

On the Apple smartphone has traditionally used the Home button, power button and turn off the device, the volume of the two switches, as well as a lever for putting your phone into silent mode. Disclaimer Home key will occur with a probability of 50% already in the iPhone 7, but may be delayed a decision until the iPhone 8 to indicate the source.

Touch ID sensor, is likely to be integrated into the display panel smartphone, not moved to the rear portion as a Nexus 5X and 6P, since the ability to unlock the smart phone without having to take his hand must remain claim in Barron's.

"The introduction of 3D Touch to iPhone 6s - first step in Apple's rejection of a button Home. This will use the vacated space to increase or decrease the screen of the device itself, "- said the expert.
