Report Corroborates Force Touch Home Button for iPhone 7

Posted by · 10796 views · Translate

Another report is corroborating rumors that Apple plans to equip its next generation iPhone with a Force Touch home button.

Analysts at Cowen and Company cite "field checks" which reveal that Apple will replace the physical Home button with a new button that sits flush with the rest of the phone. The button uses Force Touch and haptic feedback to replicate the sensation of being depressed.

Notably, this lines up with a leaked photo from earlier this month that claimed to show a touch sensitive Home button that sits flat with the rest of the bezel.

In April, DigiTimes predicted that Apple would move from a push Home button to a touch sensitive 'direct induction' Home button that provides haptic feedback (vibration) when pressed. Just yesterday that prediction was reiterated by a 9to5Mac source.

Production of the iPhone 7 will be getting underway soon. Please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for the latest leaks and updates.

It's fake guys. Look underneath there's no port or speakers.

Great! A button that gives 0 feedback. Did I press it? Wait I did oh it didn't work. Press harder? Did I press to hard? Buttons are buttons when they react like buttons only.

Did you not read the article? If you did what did you not comprehend on why they might do this? What's the difference if the button actually moves when pressed or makes a click sound and/or a vibration when pressed. They might implement different presses or strengths for different actions. Have you ever tried or played around with various android phones with no buttons? It's will be just like that but better implemented with Touch ID also.

You really should have tried the force touch trackpad of the new MacBook.
