    I would rather they get rid of the volume rockers and silent switch on the side. Those are so annoying when you accidentally hit them and the UI takes over, and they feel uncomfortable when holding the iPhone both in portrait and landscape. Ever since they switched from the square design iPhone and made them bigger, I've noticed this happens 2x more. All those features are easily accessible with Control Center anyways.

    I just hope whatever Apple does is done thoughtfully and is not just some band-aid solution like what Apple did for when you're in one app and click on something that takes you to another. Getting this absolutely right is more important than pleasing the few techies bored with the current iPhone design and obsessed with the top and bottom bezels.

    It obviously is, because no one has done it yet.

    Also, if the screen would flip in any direction, it wouldn't matter what orientation your iPhone was in. That would benefit people who want their headphone jack on the top as well.

    Home button is here to stay. I don't see any benefit of removing it. None.

    Don't be obtuse.

    I object to the last line of the post. The remaining opinion is just that. An opinion.

    Keep your Nexus. And have good joy of it. Keep Android.

    I prefer iOS.
