Report: iPhone 7 may feature 3D Touch home button

The new iPhone 7 may do away with the standard home button in favor of a touch-sensitive 3D Touch home button, Macotakara reports. The speculation echoes a report from last week that the new device will use haptic feedback to mimic a click rather than relying on an actual button press. Unnamed supply chain sources said the improved home button is flush with the body and will not actually depress when pushed, even though users will feel the sensation of pressing on a button. Doing away with the physical home button may aid in Apple rumored efforts to make its iPhones more waterproof, but if recent leaks are any indication, it won’t drastically change the look of the phone.
