iPhone 7 (6SE?) rumored to adopt pressure-sensitive home button… again

It’s starting to feel like we’re going round in circles discussing the next-gen iPhones, which are probably just a month away from kicking off pre-orders, and have recently leaked in working order, albeit the pictured and recorded designs weren’t necessarily final.

Still, many credible tipsters and knowledgeable sources answered our most important questions, some more than once, in detailed reports of late, and today, “people familiar with the matter” cited by Bloomberg add to the pile of plausible, repetitive iPhone 7 rumors.

Yet again however, the “new models” aren’t given explicit names, so 6SE remains a possibility, with the “larger iPhone” (re-) confirmed to stand out thanks to a dual-camera system first and foremost. This is supposed to “produce brighter photos with more detail”, as well as “retain more clarity” when zooming in, the two sensors simultaneously taking a picture, which the device will then merge together for the best available color reproduction.

Meanwhile, it’s practically etched in stone at last that both the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus or Pro shall replace existing physical home buttons with pressure-sensitive ones using a form of Force Touch technology to simulate a click and provide “feedback to the user via a vibrating haptic sensation” No words on the non-protrusive new keys bringing true water resistance to the table, unfortunately.
