Will Apple ever brings back Home Button on 2018 iPhone XI (or iPhone X2)?

Based on rumors, Apple plan to sell 3 iPhone this year with one iPhone – the top most premium one – is rumored to have price tag that even more expensive than last year iPhone X.

There’s should be some new things apart from the standard iOS 12 every iPhone will get (read here my iOS 12 wish lists), upgraded Processor – likely A12, possible higher RAM and higher storage capacity, better camera – it should be either a new component or a new premium functionality specific for the top most premium iPhone – to justify the price increase.

Does it make sense to bring back Home Button with Touch ID to Next Gen iPhone?

While a new third camera does make sense – Huawei started it first with its P20 series Android smartphone – but bringing back one of the most sought missing feature – the Home Button with Touch ID sensor – also does make sense. At least to me.

With some companies (Chinese phone maker companies) managed to make fingerprint scanner to work under the screen, there’s a slight possibility that Apple is considering to bring back the Touch ID for Apple next major release of 2018 iPhone, dubbed as iPhone iPhone XI or iPhone X2 or whatever Apple will call it later.

Main reason to bring the missing Home Button and/or Touch ID is to make user experiences more convenient, because although Face ID is sophisticated and cool but it’s slow – especially compared to Touch ID when it comes to unlocking device. Touch ID also able to store 5 different fingers unlike Face ID which can only store 1 face.

    I love my iPhone Home Button and can’t live without it! I really hope Apple comes out with a new phone like the iPhone 8 Plus but better with the button, i’m not a fan on the X and refuse to update. If a new phone comes out though like the iPhone 9 Plus in 2019 with a home button ill be the first in line! 🙂

    As we all know, new iPhone has been released. And 3 of them now are all edge-to-edge full screen. Now the chance for Apple to bring back home button is getting slimmer and slimmer. Hoping on the new year, Apple will introduce the iPhone SE successor together with Home Button 🙂
