    The annoyance called Haptic Home Button.

    "Another thing I tried: the new home button, which uses a “taptic engine” to give you physical feedback when you press it — it’s pressure sensitive, too, so it can tell if you really mean to press it or just tap it. And it’s awful.

    On a MacBook trackpad, you get this uncanny feeling that you’re actually hitting a button. On the iPhone, the whole bottom of the phone just sort of “kicks.” It’s not bad haptics like you remember, with weird vibration, it’s just a new kind of bad haptics.

    It doesn’t feel like a button at all. It’s a bummer.”

    I just like the feeling of a physical home button. I am yet to try out new iPhone.

    It'll be interesting to see what the tactile experience is like.

    I definitely think it will be different. But like all things, it will be an adjustment period.

    Other than waking the phone up or using it for Apple Pay Touch ID, I never use the home button - I now just use Assistive Touch BUT I think it's a personal thing so I'll wait to see how it feels FOR ME, before commenting on it.
