    it doesn't look like it. It looks the same as the 6/6s just without the ability to press in (fixed).

    Being flush would suck. I would rather have some sort of physical indication of the home button that I can find easily and quickly.

    Until next year, if/when they do flush screen. You will get used to it, and look back at a sunken fake button like it was a waste of screen space.

    Looks like it's recessed slightly from the photos I've seen.

    The flush button will come next year when it's built into the screen. We are easing into things...

    I'm a little anxious about the home button...been using iDevices for 8years now and I don't know how quickly I'm going to get used to it

    Also reviewers don't seem to like it so far

    From images the ring and button are still there they just do not move anymore.

    Same thing was said about the MacBook Pros. A year or so later, haven't heard any real lasting complaints.

    Recessed slightly, but feels way different and no longer like a button.

    Its not, its slightly recessed, same thing as the HTC 10. Look it up, since its readily available you'll have better luck getting more photos and impressions.

    There's a ring around it. But I think the glass itself is flush

    It would suck for disabled users to not have some sort of reference in the design....

    Why have that when you can tap/press anywhere within a certain region?

    If it was flush then it would be harder to 'feel' for it when not looking at the phone or in a dark place.

    Because you can't on this generation phone. The screen bonded fingerprint scanners aren't ready yet.

    Why not be able to use the whole screen, for that matter?

    I LOVE being able to find the home button by feel and not having to specifically look down at it every time.

    I've watched/read almost every review there is. I've only seen one person that said they didn't like it. Most of them said it was weird to get used to, but after just a short while they did, and they grew to like it more than the physical button.

    I wouldn't stress too much about it.

    I bet lots of users will hate the _ buzzes _ the Haptic button delivers. Even Pro Apple writers are letting on that it's a very poor implementation. Not a good sign.

    Besides rumors seem to suggest it'll be completely different on iPhone 8.

    No more Haptic button... :eek:

    How would this suck. I bet some blind users are appreciative of having it recessed. So they know where the home button is.
