Another iPhone 7 Tipster Reveals A Significant Home Button Change

There has been speculation that Apple was going to completely revamp the home button feature in the iPhone 7. In October 2015, Piper Jaffray managing director and senior research analyst Gene Munster predicted that the home button on the iPhone 7 could be eliminated in favor of a digital button that would utilize 3D Touch. About 6 months later, supply chain sources told Storm Media that the iPhone 7 will have a touch-sensitive digital button rather than the traditional physical button separated from the display — which would make the front of the device completely flush. And this past week, sources with the Japan-based Apple news blog Mac Otakara agreed that the iPhone 7 will have touch-sensitive 3D Touch home button.
