When you miss the iPhone’s bodily dwelling button, you’re not alone. President Trump misses it, too.
How do we all know? As a result of The Donald tweeted it to his 66 million followers on Friday night.

To Tim: The Button on the IPhone was FAR higher than the Swipe!

Trump swapped his Android handset for an iPhone in early 2017 when all of Apple’s handsets nonetheless had a bodily dwelling button.
In the identical 12 months, the tech large launched the iPhone X, the primary Apple handset to function an edge-to-edge show — and no dwelling button. With the brand new design, customers needed to swipe up from the underside of the system to entry the house display screen.
The timing of Trump’s tweet lamenting the lack of the house button suggests he lately upgraded to one among Apple’s newest handsets — the iPhone 11, 11 Professional, or 11 Professional Max.
However regardless of being one of the highly effective folks on the earth, we don’t see Apple altering course and including a bodily dwelling button to the iPhone 12 when it comes out (most likely) subsequent 12 months.
What to do …
Options? Effectively, Trump may dive into his iPhone’s settings and add an in-display dwelling button (Settings>Contact>Assistive Contact — extra detailed directions right here), or take into account returning to Android for one thing like Samsung’s Galaxy S10 and Notice 10 telephones, which have in-display dwelling buttons. Although contemplating the significance of his job an’ all, he’d need to make certain it has the repair for that dodgy fingerprint scanner.
But when Trump actually needs a house button and an Apple cellphone, he’ll have to modify to the iPhone eight, which Apple continues to promote, or take into account the iPhone SE 2, if and when it seems.
