VERIZON IPHONE 5, IPAD 2, AND FUTURE IOS DEVICES TO LOSE HOME BUTTONS?

Oh no say it ain’t so! This news probably won’t please jailbreakers (although initially, I’m sure they’ll find their way around it). BGR exclusively reported last week that future iOS Devices will. NOT. have. home buttons!

“We have exclusively been told that the reason Apple just added multitouch gestures for the iPad in the latest iOS 4.3 beta is because the iPad will be losing the home button. Yes, we are told that Apple, at some point in time, will remove the home button from the iPad’s design. Instead of button taps, you will use new multitouch gestures to navigate to the home screen and also to launch the app switcher.

That’s not all, however. In addition to the home button disappearing from the iPad, we’re told that this change will make its way over to the iPhone as well. Our source said Apple employees are already testing iPads and iPhones with no home buttons on the Apple campus, and it’s possible we will see this new change materialize with the next-generation iPad and iPhone devices set to launch this year.”

As an added piece of news to go along with this pretty drastic change if this rumor holds true, Photo Booth is making it to the iPhone and iPad as well. Although this sounds really crazy right now, we’d get more screenspace and I doubt Apple would do it if they didn’t think it was right.

How about you? What do you think? Are you going to miss the home button?
