‘iPhone 7' Latest News & Update: Home Button to be Replaced by Pressure Sensitive Surface?

By Staff Reporter , Updated Aug 09, 2016 12:10 PM EDT

Prior to the expected date of release for the iPhone 7 this September, the latest rumor about its specs comes in the form of its home button. According to the Telegraph, the physical button that we see on the iPhone 6S series will be replaced by a haptic feedback that will essentially allow Apple to create larger iPhones.

Interestingly, the home button will still be visible on the bottom part of the device; only, it will not have the characteristic of being physically pressed. Users can only touch the panel lightly and depending on the touch sensitivity, the iPhone 7 will do what it's programmed to do. The vibrating (haptic) response will confirm that the desired action has been properly adhered to.

The latest iOS10 update has also brought new changes on the iPhone series, obviously removing the swipe to unlock feature of the device. This latest update is also expected to appear on the next iPhone 7 series. The iPhone 7 is also rumored to have a bigger primary camera located at the back, slightly protruding, but allows the latest innovation on taking images in different situations.

Meanwhile, the latest rumors about the iPhone 7 specs also have something to do with the cease of the 3.5mm headphone jack and will be replaced by the lightning earphones. Although none of these rumors were actually confirmed by Apple, it pays to learn something about the upcoming iPhone 7, even if it means a 50 percent chance of getting near to the truth.

The iPhone 7 is expected to launch on the 12th of September and if that date proves to be true, expect Apple to host a conference prior to the unveiling. Are you looking forward to see the next iPhone 7 series? Don't miss the latest update on the device by reading on GamenGuide.com
