In iOS 10, you were able to activate the App Switcher by deep pressing on the left edge of the screen. This feature no longer exists in iOS 11. Could they have gotten rid of it in preparation of virtual volume and lock buttons? Even if so, I don’t think they’ll get rid of the physical buttons just yet, there’d be too much of an uproar. But perhaps the curved edges will act as long button bumpers, locking the device if you deep press anywhere on the right edge, adjusting volume if you deep press anywhere on the left edge. There would be visual animations to go along with the 3D Touch of course. This would aid in their ultimate goal of creating a “single sheet of glass” that can be held in any direction and operate the same; the phone would always know which side the volume rocker should be on. Also, my phone with iOS 11 occasionally glitches and shows the lock screen sideways, just like the iPad can do. Let me know if anyone ever sees the iPhone lock screen upside down too. Perhaps the ability to hold the phone in any orientation, just like the iPad, is coming even for a “smaller” phone. The only hang-up is the speaker/sensor cutout on the ‘top’ in some unverified leaks. But the final schematic/parts leaks are pretty much nonexistent at this point. Right? What do you guys think?
