iOS 4.3 code reveals new iPhone and iPad models, No Home Button!
Looks like folks have been poking at the new beta 4.3 for iOS, seeded to developers today and they seem to have found, As history has repeated itself, New versions of iPhone and iPad. Namely, two new-generation iPhones (4,1 and 4,2) and three iPads (2,1; 2,2; and 2,3).
Ask us and we say, it’s the GSM and CDMA variants of the next-gen models (plus a WiFi-only iPad).
BGR is claiming it’s heard from sources that the next iPhone / iPad models will eschew the physical home button altogether in lieu of the new multi-finger gestures and that employees at Cupertino are already testing such devices.
Ask us : we already hate the fact that the Desire HD does not have Physical buttons. But, an iPhone without a home button, imagine using five fingers to zoom out on the iPhone with only 3.5″ of screen-real estate, to close an app, that just seems ridiculous to us. We seriously hope that, Apple keeps the home button, But, it does need a new design.
