According to latest reports, the new home button in iPhone 7 will not physically depress when pushed. Meanwhile, a leading tech portal also revealed that the upcoming iPhone 7 would be water-resistant.
If rumors are to be believed, the new static home button will enable Apple to manufacture the device with reduced thickness. The expected thickness of the upcoming iPhone 7 will be around 6 mm, which is very less than the existing models.
In 2015, Apple introduced Force Touch trackpad on the 12-inch MacBook and MacBook Pros that stimulate the effect of a click with haptic feedback. If Apple manages to integrate a home button which doesn’t move, then it has borrowed the feature from MacBook.
Capable of sensing pressure, the Force Touch trackpad coupled with the Apple Watch and 3D Touch display on iPhone 6s series will also enable you to distinguish a simple tap from a hard press.
The Touch ID fingerprint sensor can also be used in apps. It can also be used on the home screen in iOS 10 without actually pressing the button.
The rumors about the possible integration of Force Touch ID or 3D Touch ID surfaced a few months back. The latest reports confirmed the presence of new feature in iPhone 7.
In the meantime, few reports have emerged about the upcoming iPhone 7 that the device will also be called as iPhone 6SE. Moreover, the upcoming iPhone 7 will also eliminate the traditional 3.5mm headphone jack.
You will be able to work with lightning connector port using special EarPods. There are rumors about the possible release of a new Bluetooth-enabled wireless charger. On the specifications front, the 5.5-inch variant of iPhone Plus will be equipped with a dual-lens camera in addition to a magnetic Smart Connector for charging.
According to the latest report from Macotakara, the upcoming iPhone 7 will be available in a dark shade of black, which resembles the latest Mac Pro. Apple will retain space gray, gold, rose gold and silver color variants.
iPhone 7 to feature pressure-sensitive home button
According to reports, Apple iPhone 7 will feature a pressure-sensitive home button, which makes use of the company’s revolutionary Force Touch technology. In addition, to improving home button, you can also expect a dual-lens camera, which will be capable of capturing bright and detailed images even in low-light conditions.
The new iPhone 7 home button will be designed in such a way to make you feel it while clicking. However, the sensation will be generated by a haptic feedback engine.
The new camera in the iPhone 7 will enable users to zoom into the focus point without losing clarity. Since the new iPhone 7 will not be integrated with a headphone jack, you have to make use of either wireless headsets or buy new headphones with lightning connectors.
The interesting point to note is that the upcoming iPhone 7 will have an additional speaker in place of the headphone jack. We expect Apple to bundle lightning earphones with the package for all customers who pre-order the device.
We all know that iPhone 7 will be unveiled within the next few days. Most likely, Apple will integrate these design changes to the device. We will keep you posted about all the latest developments. Stay tuned to PC-Tablet.
