Apple is expected to launch two new iPhone models this year – the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. However, rumors are high that Apple is working on iPhone 7. The most awaited iPhone is also rumored to come without the home button that has been a part of every iPhone model till date.


The home button has been a part of the iPhone from its inception. This time, Apple has decided to go for a change by bringing something new out of the box. The whole design of the phone is going to be experimental, but imagining iPhone 7 without the home button will be something amazing.

According to, “Apple is working on eliminating the fringes of the housing cover iPhone, unsightly plastic edges that contrast with the aluminum housing.”

The tech giant is about to bring visual revolution to the whole model, which was much needed. The screen size may also increase without changing the dimensions.

According to some speculations, the iPhone 7 will come with a processor chip from Samsung. The Korean company is rumored to be making the chip for iPhone 7. It may also contain a dual-core or quad-core processor. A9 processor can be part of the new iPhone 7 without the home button. The phone is also rumored to be much thinner than its counterparts.

Though nothing has been made clear by Apple authorities about iPhone 7 release date and specs, BGR reported earlier that Apple has filed a patent for a new device without the home button. The phone may have a curvy display unlike other models in the market and it is worth waiting for.

According to the report, the curved display will present “an illusion of depth perception” capable of “mimicking a 3D experience.” The patent also explained that the media device “shows a bottom view of portable electronic device in accordance with the described embodiments.”

It was also mentioned in the patent that “a flexible display is shaped in such a way as to be inserted into a lumen of the enclosure. For example, when the lumen of the enclosure is circular or circular-like in nature, the flexible display can be wound, or rolled, up into a shape consistent with the shape of the lumen.”

It may be quite soon that Apple announces its new venture, the iPhone 7. Whether or not we’ll still see it with the home button, only time will tell.
