Force Touch Home button coming to iPhone 7 according to analysts

According to a report in 9to5Mac, Apple could launch two new iPhone devices this August. 9to5Mac received an anonymous tip about the iPhone 7 that incorporates haptic feedback in the Home button.

Haptic feedback on the Home button could simulate a click in a way that's similar to Force Touch on the main screen of the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus. This tip aligns with the predictions of iPhone 7 using "Force Touch Home button" according to analysts. This comes in addition to the prediction that the Home button will not be a moving physical part and will work more like the trackpad on MacBook computers.

Analysts further predict that iPhone 7 will gain waterproof capabilities unlike the troll advertisements on 4Chan in recent history and it will ditch the headphone jack and instead will come with a speaker grill. The latest generation will be available in one more "Space Black" colour in addition to the existing Silver, Space Grey, Gold and Rose Gold. These rumours come right after the previous reports of the iPhone 7 coming up with a bigger camera module.
