Most people who bought an iPhone 7 are over the whole headphone jack thing. While Phil Schiller’s courage remark will be the butt of sardonic tech quips until Apple’s dying days, the furor over the decision to forgo the 3.5mm port has all but died down. Whether you’re on Team Dongle or Team Bluetooth, the transition has been relatively painless, and most of us don’t even think about it anymore.
But now Apple is gearing up to make another controversial move with the iPhone 8. The elimination of the front-facing home button has been one of Cupertino’s worst-kept secrets, but a recent rumor suggests more than the button is going away. According to highly accurate KGI Securities analysis Ming Chi-Kuo, Apple won’t be moving the Touch ID sensor to the back of the phone or under the display as expected—it will be removing it altogether.
