According to the latest rumors shared by reliable supply chain sources, the next-generation iPhone may become waterproof and dustproof and get a touch sensitive Home button instead of the physical one.

As noted by reliable supply chain sources, the demand for Apple’s new 4-inch handset called the iPhone SE is incredibly strong in China. In fact, the device is so popular among the customers that it is taking the market share from Asian vendors, namely, Huawei, Xiaomi, Vivo and Oppo. The reason for such strong demand is most likely connected with the price of the SE. You see, the iPhone SE is the cheapest smartphone Apple has ever created.
Apple has reportedly hired Chris Porritt, former Aston Martin Chief Engineer and Tesla Vice President of Vehicle Engineering. According to the latest reports from reliable tech news websites, the expert will focus on “special projects” that most likely include the development of the long-awaited and widely-rumored Apple car codenamed “Titan”. Porritt can possibly substitute Steve Zadesky who left Apple earlier this year and who was believed to be a lead of the car project.
