A new report suggests that Apple's iPhone 7 will be released sooner, and it will be launched on Sept. 7. The report added that the new device has no "home" button-so how possible it could be?
After Apple urged its iPhone and iPad users users to upgrade their iOS software due to a spyware attack, there are reports appeared online that the new device, iPhone 7 will be launched on Sept. 7. The tech giant will hold its annual Sept. gala event on the seventh day of September, where the company also reveals its new device.
Aside from iPhone 7, iPhone Plus will be also released in Sept., according to Forbes. A tipster Evan Blass revealed the dates when these devices will available on Apple Store.
Blass is confident that iPhone 7 and iPhone Plus will go on sale on Friday, September 16, while the pre-orders through online Apple Store will be available on Sept. 9. As per advice of the source, it is better to get pre-order in as quickly as possible because the stocks are low at the launching date.
There are reports suggest that 2017 iPhone may not have a "home" button unlike other iPhone models. So how could it work?
"Home" button is used if you want to go back to the main screen. Why Apple wants to ditch this button?
Apple wants to make a larger screen so it can eliminate some bezel while keeping the overall footprint, according to The Next Web. Previously, the tech giant introduced 3D Touch for iPhones, which works as a "home" button, however, it is more contextual.
Touch ID is another feature on iPhone and iPad, that recognizes fingerprint. According to the source, Sonavation, an electronic manufacturer that pioneered a way to slip fingerprint sensors, would eliminate the need of Touch ID.
