No home button on Apple’s next iPhone?
Apple removes home button in Apple’s next iPhone
- Patent reveals system to use ultrasound to replace buttons
- Could be used as a fingerprint sensor as well as a button
‘Apple is developing touch and display driver integration (TDDI) single-chip solutions for its iPhones. The TDDI single-chip solutions will also come with integrated fingerprint sensors’.
The integrated design would fit into future iPhone designs – models with ultra-thin and ultra-narrow displays, and with a whole plane design eliminating the Home button.
Why to use Button-less design??
The Company may discontinue its traditional design and come up with all new button-less design for its new iPhone 7. The home button which is being used in current iPhone can be eliminated completely to provide bigger space on the screen.
