We are expecting to see the home button on the new iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus when they launch later this year, although future iPhones may ditch the home button.
According to a recent report, Apple is planning to remove the home button from future versions of its iPhones, although this could take a few years.
Apple is apparently developing a new touch and display driver integration (TDDI) for future iPhones that will also come with integrated fingerprint sensors, this would mean that the company would no longer need a home button on their iPhone.
The TDDI single-chip solutions will also come with integrated fingerprint sensors, said the sources. 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.
This definitely will not be included in the new iPhone 6S and 6S Plus handsets when they launch this year, this could be in next years iPhones or we may have to wait for the year after that for Apple to remove the home buttons from its iPhone.
