The iPhone‘s home button could see its biggest change yet on the iPhone 7.
The latest rumor suggests the iPhone 7, which won’t be a radical departure, could come with a touch-sensitive home button that won’t actually be clickable.
Isn’t it strange enough that most of the leaked iPhone 7 images have only shown the rear part of the device? Well, even though it was being expected that the front part of the phone will remain unchanged, the elements can surely be modified. Some new leaked photos have been tipped to us today and show the front side of the iPhone 7. And you will be surprised to know that the upcoming iPhone might have a touch-sensitive home button!
The button is touch-sensitive and users will have to perform tapping actions for various functions, like tap and hold for Siri, double tap to see the running apps, etc. The Touch ID might be significantly smoother and faster due to this change.

In iOS 10, Apple has reworked how the unlock screen works with the home button. In tandem with a new feature that activates the screen immediately when the phone is lifted, you will now press to unlock the phone instead of swipe to unlock.
