The iPhone 8 will have a virtual Home button that resizes

Developer Steven Troughton-Smith has revealed Twitter details about the iPhone 8's virtual home button, claiming it resizes as needed to adjust certain tasks on the smartphone. Hallucinatory.

Specifically, Troughton-Smith described a "periphery" area of ​​the system user interface that expands or minimizes and shows or hides the iPhone 8's virtual home button as needed. There will be tab bars extending under this peripheral area, and no evidence of the ability of this part of the user interface to change color was discovered.

According to Troughton-Smith, this means that the indicator that Apple is building for the area of ​​the virtual home button "will have to contrast well" with any background and colors that appear on the rest of the screen.

Nor was there any evidence to suggest that any part of the application user interface is part of the start button area , ie Apple plans to keep the bottom of the user interface start button clean and uniform. Troughton-Smith mentioned that every time a user plays a full-screen video, the content hides the home button controls.

The idea of ​​a virtual area of ​​function on the iPhone 8 was detailed earlier this year in a report written by KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who said that the 5.8-inch screen on the device would have a screen Of 5.15 inches usable.

The remaining area of ​​the screen would be reserved for an area of ​​virtual buttons, including a start button , but Kuo's report never hinted that the function area could be resized or completely hidden when the user interface allows it.

In addition, Troughton-Smith published the measures of the upper status bar on the iPhone 8. Designer Olivier Charavel has already used these measures to create a model of what should be this status bar on the actual iPhone 8, including the intensity Of the signal and the battery indicator .

Earlier, Troughton-Smith said the new status bar seemed "more complex and powerful" in its design, and even said it could be interactive .
