By eliminating the home button in its tenth-anniversary device, Apple wants to transform the way people use the iPhones, The Next Web reports. It has made adjustments to its device for introducing a bezel-less iPhone 8. According to Bloomberg, the newly leaked images of the flagship device indicate that it will replace the physical home button with a thin bar at the end of the screen and gesture controls.
According to reports, some might have expected a virtual home button but instead, users will be able to drag the thin bar to the center of the screen to open iOS 11’s multi-tasking panel. It can be further dragged up to return to the home screen. Also, it has been reported that a dock similar to the ones on iPads running iOS 11 will be implemented by Apple. It does not explain how users will be able to access it though.

It might get messy when things are done a bit fast such as playing a game that requires a user to flick upward for controlling a character or object. But the new iPhone may change the habits of its users by providing them with a beautiful bezel-less screen.
