  • Apple to Introduce First iPhone without Home Button within Next Two Years Time Frame

Apple Incorporated is to introduce the first iPhone without a physical home button within the time frame of the next two years.

The workers and staff at Apple are busy tinkering away at a special iPhone without any home button whatsoever. It is still a long way off, so the consumers can sit pretty for awhile. The year 2017 is the time period during which it will probably get released for public consumption, according to AppleInsider.

This removal of the home button is indeed a radical step. It is almost like the doing away of the gear system in ultramodern cars. The missing home button will simplify things and make for smoother and easier handling. The goal is something which will require a major overhaul of the inner workings of the iPhone hardware. But nothing is final. As they say there is many a slip between the cup and the lip.

The whole project could be condemned to the dustbin of history if things don’t go well. All the iPhone aficianados can do is keep their fingers crossed and secretly pray for the miracle to occur without any technological hitches. 

Apple’s plans are as usual set in an atmosphere of secrecy and clandestine behavior. The home button being absent will lead to a lighter and more efficient iPhone. And it will look good too without the protrusions.

The beauty factor cannot be ignored since its design will be simply flawless once the home button vanishes from the scene. However, the touch ID scanner will remain since it is such an important and crucial part of the iPhone.

Nevertheless, the mechanism employed for the fingerprint identity system will change for the better. Apple has always evolved and never stays in one spot for long. After all, “Stay Lean, Stay Hungry” was the motto of its founder, the late and great Steve Jobs. 

Apple seems to be cooking something but it is a closely guarded secret. Display driver integration single chip solutions are the name of the game according to some rumors. A fingerprint detection methodology in the handset’s display would be the ideal thing.

We know that Apple is working on it. What we don’t know is how it will achieve what seems a near impossibility. Some of the most intricate and complex interior of the seamless systems of Apple shows that the huge corporation deserves the massive profits accruing to it from the annual sales of its products. For they are simply the best in the world.
