So long then, iPhone home button…

… it was nice pressing you. Well, a t least some of the thousands and thousands of times. Apple has finally abandoned a feature that’s been a staple of its smartphones since the very start, over a decade ago: A physical home button.

Fingerprint readers that hide underneath the displa...
