According to the latest rumor, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will both feature a new Home button. The sources claim that it will be integrated into the display.

The report shared by Bloomberg reporters is based on data from reliable supply chain sources, so it is worth taking into account. The Home button will also provide haptic feedback similar to the one the trackpad on the latest MacBook provides.
