It finally happened. Apple nixed the home button on its newest and most expensive iPhone, the 10th anniversary edition known as the iPhone X.
Instead of a home button, the phone can be unlocked using facial recognition. For everything else where you would use the home button, fluid gesture controls will do the trick. Instead of holding the home button down for Siri, you can just say "Hey Siri" or press the larger side button.
Could this be the future of the iPhone? While the iPhone 8 and its home button are still an option, we'll have to wait and see if Apple completely does away with the home button when it releases its next iPhone - which will likely be September, going by the company's historical pattern.
