Making inroads inside of India is a tough task to take on. Surmounting the challenge of serving hundreds of millions of people over areas of many disparate divides definitely calls for a ground game. It’s something Apple has long lacked. And since the market for premium smartphones and smartwatches is growing like a weed, it has set up shops in the country.

And you thought that taco emoji was soooo worth it, right?

Anyways, people usually don’t give these things much credit for doing what they do and what engineers have made them do.It didn’t need to be a button
Take the iPhone 5S with its home button. It implemented a fingerprint sensor on top of it and Apple thus created Touch ID.
