Will The iPhone 7 Be Missing This Major Feature?

There are still months to go until Apple unveils its latest, the iPhone 7, but that hasn't stopped the rumor mill from working overtime.

Pictures have emerged alleging to show the new model, and it's missing one very important feature.

If the rumors are true, the next iPhone will have a touch-sensitive menu button.


Website Mobipicker speculates that the press-down menu button will be a thing of the past.

The post reads,

As you can notice in the leaked photos of the White-colored iPhone 7, the lower and upper part of the bezel are narrower now, and the front camera and proximity sensor have been repositioned. But the thing worth noticing is the home button, which seems to have dropped the circular metal ring around it as we saw in the previous iPhone.

Mobipicker's source says the button is touch-sensitive and cannot be manually pressed. It says you'll have to tap and hold for Siri, and that this new feature will greatly improve Touch ID capabilities.

We can't know for sure, but meanwhile we'll be here, pressing buttons the old-fashioned way and holding out for another rumor -- that we'll soon be able to get our hands on the first blue iPhone.

The future is bright.
