cupertino - A thin software bar will replace the new iPhone's home button. That reports Bloomberg based on sources and pictures that it has seen.
Apple is currently launching the launch of three new iPhones coming month. According to Bloomberg, one of those models, a new high-end device, has so many changes that are one of iPhone's biggest updates in the ten-year history of the product.
The thin software bar that has to replace the home button can be dragged by the user to the center of the screen to unlock the phone. Once in an app, a similar gesture starts multitasking.
The new model is similar to that of the iPhone 7, but has an OLED screen that is slightly larger than that of the iPhone 7 plus occupying almost the entire front. The new screen, with rounded corners, is also longer than that of the iPhone 7 Plus, which can show more of, for example, a web page.
At the top there is also a cutout for sensors and the camera. As a result, the status bar that is normally there is now divided into a left and a right half. On the left side is the time, while on the right is shown, for example, how long the battery is left before charging the device.
Apple often tests different designs and details, so Apple may eventually come up with something else.
