We are familiar with rumors of Apple releasing two iPhones this year with larger displays. Other rumors have included a Sapphire display and solar charging. While most of us wait for the phones to arrive, a new pre-release rumor is already around the corner. Apple might come out with a phone which might be without the trademark home button.
Similar rumors also made rounds just before the release of iPhone 5S. Extra-hard Sapphire Crystal glass could help iPhone keep the Touch-ID capabilities and also get rid of the physical home button.
It is being said that Apple, which is looking to produce larger screen phones, is trying to keep the size of the phone compact by getting rid of the home button. By getting rid of the physical user space, the phone will have more room to fill the display.
Some hackers have already made it possible by changing their home button to only require a touch rather than a button press.
