Apple To Kill Home Button
While the button has been a constant in iPhones, Apple is reportedly developing new technology that could lead to a number of changes in future phone designs.
Crediting sources in Taiwan’s IC design industry, Digitimes reports that Apple is internally developing touch and display driver integration (TDDI) single-chip systems for its iPhones.
“The TDDI single-chip solutions will also come with integrated fingerprint sensors,” the report states. “The integrated design would fit into future iPhone designs – models with ultra-thin and ultra-narrow displays, and with a whole plane design eliminating the home button.”
