MacDailyNews Take: Besides the myriad UX design possibilities, losing the Home button opens up intriguing physical possibilities ranging from more screen real estate in the same sizes as current iPhones, iPad, and iPod touch devices to current-sized screens in smaller- (shorter-) bodied iOS devices. Apple likely already does know how to integrate Touch ID into the display:

• Apple granted key U.S patent for Touch ID fingerprint recognition integrated into Multi-Touch display – May 18, 2016
• Apple supplier LG Innotek embeds fingerprint sensor into display – May 4, 2016
• 3D fingerprint sensors under Gorilla Glass may let Apple kill iPhone’s Home button – July 21, 2015
• Apple working on eliminating the Home button on iPhone, iPad, sources say – June 22, 2015
• Apple files for patent to move Touch ID fingerprint scanner from home button to display – February 9, 2015
