Apple is looking for an appearance boost by transforming its iconic home button to a perhaps a more appealing software home button. Though there have been quite a few changes in most of its core features, this is the first time that the technology giants are thinking of experimenting with their home button appearance. It was recently that the company upgraded the software recognition.
“Apple is internally developing touch and display driver integration (TDDI) single-chip solutions for its iPhones, according to sources in Taiwan’s IC design industry,” says DigiTimes. “The TDDI single-chip solutions will also come with integrated fingerprint sensors, said the sources. The integrated design would fit into future iPhone designs – models with ultra-thin and ultra-narrow displays, and with a whole plane design eliminating the Home button.”
It is believed to be a smart, since the home button gives it an odd resolution. They can now push to the 1080p resolution without any glitches. The same touch ID sensor available on the iPhone 6 and 5S will be used for the software home button. Even though it is not confirmed this new feature is most likely to be a part of iPhone 7 that is awaiting launch in 2016.
