iPhone 8 To Completely Ditch Home Button In Favour Of ‘Software Bar’
With the tech giant Apple’s Event taking place next month, the news does not stop circulating. According to the latest rumors, the long-awaited iPhone 8 may see its Home button replaced by a “Software Bar.”
This new bar will be responsible for all tasks that were intended for the Home button. Since then, users of iPhone 8 should use this new tool for Multitasking and to access the Home Screen and the Control Center. In addition, a dock, similar to the iPad in iOS 11, should also be included in the new iPhones.
According to a reliable media “Bloomberg” and other sources close to the tech giant Apple, the Cupertino company will have tested several options and weighted very well the removal of the Home button on the iPhone 8.
The tech giant Apple finally decided to opt for a new solution that should be based only on gestures. These gestures should be active when you drag this new bar up. From there, users can perform all kinds of tasks involving Multitasking.
This new feature is, in a way, similar to the new Dock in iOS 11: to evoke it simply slide your finger from bottom to top. But on iPhone 8, if we continue to slide this Software Bar, we will have access to several features, which we usually access through the Home button.
Without a doubt, what the tech giant Apple wants to take advantage of the available space on the screen to the maximum while adding new features.
There are only two weeks left until September 12, when the new iPhones launch event is due to start selling 10 days later. Until then we are waiting for more news to show us what the tech giant Apple is preparing for all its users and Apple fans.
