Apple Will Reportedly Kill The Home Button And That Sucks

According to a new report from Mark Gurman, Apple will kill the iPhone’s physical home button in 2017. Don’t get it twisted, this isn’t the iPhone we’re going to see in a few weeks; it’s the iPhone after that. And killing the home button is a very sad idea.
