iPhone 7 might have not have a physical home button, but a 3D Touch home button instead

Apple’s obsession with reducing the thickness of its products is quite common amongst those who keep up with the headlines. iPhone 7 has been rumored on countless occasions that it will not feature a 3.5mm headphone jack and users will have to use the Lightning port in order to plug in their earphones or headphones. Now, another rumor tells us that the smartphone might not feature a physical home button at all, but a 3D Touch one instead.

To make you familiarized with what we’re trying to tell, Apple’s iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus came with the company’s 3D Touch display. This display, when tapped with a small amount of pressure, sent a vibrational sensation to the user that gave them a feel that they are actually pressing a physical button. This is what called as a haptic feedback. According to Macrumors, the absence of a physical home button could give Apple more freedom to reduce the thickness of its iPhone 7, and the placement of a 3D Touch home button when pressed, could give the user the exact same haptic feedback sensation like they’re actually pressing the real home button.

We also believe that the iPhone 7’s camera sensor is going to be upgraded one, and while the following is not a huge change, a 14 percent increase in battery capacity is still something. iPhone 7 could feature a 1,960mAh battery, which only means that the Plus model is going to sport an even larger capacity than its predecessor, the iPhone 6s Plus. Apple’s A10 chipset is going to be running inside all models, and its improved chip design is going to deliver a higher efficiency metric.

While iPhone 7 will definitely be better than iPhone 6s in terms of hardware specifications, all we’re looking at right now are huge efforts from Apple to further the thickness of iPhones. Apple, how about you increase that thickness and allow your mobile devices to feature massive battery capacities in the future?
