Leaked iPhone 7 Front Panel Reveals Touch-Sensitive Home Button
Two new images showing the front panel of the iPhone 7 have recently appeared on the Internet. What is interesting about these images is that they depict a touch-sensitive Home button instead of the physical one that was present in Apple handsets since the very first model. The photos also reveal narrower bezels of the front panel.
The images have been spotted on the website called mobipicker.com. Even though their origin is unknown and the quality is rather poor, the front panel looks quite similar to the one that may be used for future iPhone.
According to the website's source, the button is level with the rest of the bezel and does not depress like a traditional clickable button. Instead, the button is said to be touch-sensitive, requiring users to perform taps, or tap-hold actions for functions like invoking Siri.
Apple is expected to unveil the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in September. Both handsets may get new antenna bands, better cameras and a number of other hardware improvements. According to the latest rumors, Apple may also launch the Apple Watch 2 alongside new smartphones.
