Drumroll please…the first piece leaked from what’s claimed to be the new iPhone is…a home button. Woohoo! Available to purchase through the usual vaguely shifty Chinese sources like TVC Mall and True Supplier, which claim it to be an “iPhone 5 Home Button”.
So, what makes these any different from the existing iPhone home buttons? It’s the base, which is a rounded circle in the new ones, as opposed to a normal circle with iPhone 4S’ button. It’s a difference that’s entirely beneath the surface of the phone, so not one that’s easily spotted.
These part leaks may or may not be real — we all remember what happened prior to the iPhone 4S. However, what it could indicate is that there will still be a physical home button on the new iPhone, something that most people seem to want.
