....the physical 'home' button......will have a thin software-based bar along the bottom of the home screen relying on gestures [ so some say similar to Palm's WebOS on Palm Pixi/Veer ].......


......and change in the app Dock....


Here's What the Status Bar and iPad-Style Dock Could Look Like on 'iPhone 8'

.....Earlier today, well-connected Apple reporter Mark Gurman said the so-called "iPhone 8" will have a thin software-based bar along the bottom of the home screen, controlled by gestures, in lieu of a physical home button.

Gurman also said the Dock, which houses up to four commonly used apps, will be redesigned with a new interface similar to the one on the iPad version of iOS 11. Above it, there will still be six rows of apps, with up to 24 apps per page.

The status bar is said to be split into left and right sides, which some Apple employees supposedly call "ears" internally. By default, the left side shows the time, while the right side displays Wi-Fi, signal bars, and battery life.

With those details in mind, graphic designer Olivier Charavel created a mockup of what the Home screen could look like on the iPhone 8.

Charavel also shared a mockup of Apple's Health app as an example of what apps could look like on the iPhone 8 accordingly.

Gurman said users can drag the gesture bar up to the middle of the screen to unlock the device. When inside an app, a similar gesture starts multitasking, and users can continue to flick upwards to close the app and go back to the home screen.

Guilherme Rambo shared a video that demonstrates how it could look once the Dock has been summoned, based on Apple's iOS simulator for developers.

Exactly what I was thinking. You'd have to have some sort of low-level sensor still available somewhere on the device to replace that functionality.

Same with the software controlled iPhone 7, one of the volume buttons along with the sleep/wake button.

Oh goody, now the iPhone will look like an Android phone. That's innovation for you.
