Hey folks we came to know that Apple will not be giving the home button in the upcoming iPad and iPhone. At first it sounded crazy that no home button for iPad and iPhone. But you will use new multitouch gestures to navigate to the home screen.
That’s not all, however. In addition to the home button disappearing from the iPad, we’re told that this change will make its way over to the iPhone as well. Apple employees are already testing iPads and iPhones with no home buttons on the Apple campus, and it’s possible we will see this new change materialize with the next-generation iPad and iPhone devices set to launch this year.
John Gruber has to say something really important:
“The physical Home button is impossible to miss. That it is the one and only button on the faces of these devices is a big part of why normal people are able to pick them, starting playing with them, and figure out how to get around with no help. How in the world would a normal person figure out or guess that they need to do a “five-finger pinch” to get back to the home screen?
I’m not saying these are bad gestures. But they’re like keyboard shortcuts on the Mac. For any command you expect normal people to actually find and use, there needs to be a visual way to find it. You can add a keyboard shortcut for expert users to memorize, but you can’t have only a keyboard shortcut. Same with these gestures.”
Now see a pic of iPad without a Home Button.
How does the iPad looks without a button? Doesn’t it looks weird? and the Major question to be asked is
How we will get into DFU or Recovery Mode?
