The mystery of the iPhone 8 home button may finally be solved due to a new leak.
According to a report from Bloomberg, from its own viewing of images and sources familiar with the device, the iPhone 8 will be controlled entirely by the iOS 11 software. Across the bottom of the device, users will find a thin software bar that can be dragged to the middle of the screen to open the phone. Once inside you will that a similar gesture opens up multitasking, and drawing even further upwards will close an app and take you back to the home screen. If you simply enter multitasking you will be able to flip through standalone cards for each of your apps.
Users that have tested the iOS 11 beta for iPad have already seen a preview of what to expect.
The notch at the top of the iPhone 8 screen that will house the front facing camera and earpiece will be embraced by the iOS 11 software with the area surrounding the cut out displaying information such as cellular reception and Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity being displayed.
The iPhone 8 – along with the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus – is expected to make its debut at an Apple event rumored to take place on Sept. 12.
