IPhone 8 Gestures Will Replace The Home Button

Today, we've got a fresh, alleged iPhone 8 related image for you.

According to the Wall Street Journal, sources claimed that Apple has scheduled a product announcement event on September 12 that will include the expected three new iPhone models: the iPhone 7s, the iPhone 7s Plus, and the iPhone 8. This has been a staple ever since the first iPhone launched ten years ago, but according to a new report the iPhone 8 will not have any semblance of such a button - not even a software-rendered one. Alternatively, Apple may end up using its usual haunt in San Francisco; the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium. However, it has been unclear how the iPhone 8 would work with the loss of the home button. Gabalex Capital Management LLC's holdings in Apple were worth $21,549,000 as of its most recent filing with the SEC.

The iPhone 8 release date is claimed to be the week of September 22, with the Apple special media launch event suggested to be on 12th.

It sounds like Apple is also introducing a face-scanning system that would recognize a user quickly and efficiently.

There's a lot that's changing in the iPhone 8.

It is also said that Kapil's behaviour has miffed Sony and they have warned him by sending a notice. The Baadshaho team reached to the sets on time, but Kapil Sharma didn't show up at the sets.

It appears that new iPhone 8 gestures will replace the functionality of the home button. A variety of high-end Android phones, such as the Samsung Galaxy S8, support wireless induction charging, and with certain third-party cases you can add the same functionality to your current iPhone.

Of course, the iPhone that makes it to consumer hands could be quite different from the concepts Apple is testing, so don't take today's report as confirmation the iPhone 8 is doing away with the home button. Apple has a one year low of $102.53 and a one year high of $163.12. Furthermore, unlike other companies, Apple is also selling its brand and this always inflates the price of any Apple-made product. Additionally, the smartphone has an area at the top where Apple is planning to bundle its camera and sensors, including its new 3D facial recognition sensor.

Several other large investors have also recently bought and sold shares of the stock.

Apple has tested gestures with a new "thin, software bar" at the bottom of the screen, according to images seen by Bloomberg. And the device's announcement will most likely be paired with the announcement of updated iPhone 7 and 7 Plus models, traditionally branded as "S" devices to indicate the hardware revision.
