    Probably find out quickly. I'm thinking after having every iPhone since the first, I probably will. But like everything, I'll get over it as I learn the new UI.

    I don't think I'll miss it. I'm looking forward to learning new gestures. It kinda gives me the excitement I used to get years ago when I got a new phone.

    I would love to have a virtual home button although I have to admit that physical button is better.

    In the last few days I have noticed how much easier I (hope) FaceID will be instead of TouchID in just looking to unlock an app instead of having to touch the home button. It could actually make things quicker so long as apps are updated to support FaceID.
    Agree. Hopefully that is a quick update and not super delayed like many were with TouchID.

    The good news is any app that supported TouchID automatically supports FaceID.

    The iPhone X has no home button. It DOES have FaceID and a webOS-inspired swipe up to go home gesture instead. You think you're going to miss the home button?

    Personally, having used (er, LOVED) webOS years ago, I'm not going to miss the home button one bit. Seems like a lot of wasted space to me, give me more screen, and smart gestures to interact with the UI!
    If I get the iPhone X, I’m sure I’d miss the hone button initially, but I won’t have any problems adjusting to not having it. More than likely, I’ll get mad at my iPad Pro and iPhone 8 for still having it....

    I uses iphone 7 plus since earlier this year after a very long time with blackberry. My last blackberry device is passport. When i first move to bb10, i don’t really have any problem adapting to the gesture with no home button. But when i moved to iphone, I constantly swipe my iphone up. So for me, it is about time iphone remove the button. It is too old school.

    I won’t miss it. If I was going to miss it, I would have ordered the 8. I’m prepared to be without it.

    Home button? No. Fingerprint sensor, very much so.

    I think having no home button is the future for iPhone.

    Nice. I did not know that. should save a lot of apps from needing to be updated.

    I can't remember where I read that, but it was quoted from one of the interviews after the keynote. I think it was either Frederighi or Schiller that said it.

    I googled it and there was an article on iMore that said the faceID code is just replacing the touchID so you are right and they won't need a special update.

    Definitely will kind of. I was a JBer since the first iPhone. The home button has always been important to me for DFU mode and the app switcher. Then there was the hardware issues on I think the iPhone 4? Anyway ever since then I have had the accessibility Home button on my screen. I’ll give this new setup a chance after all I rock it on my iPad Pro without the accessibilty home button. If I can’t get down with it though hopefully I have a fallback

    How will all of these apps work now that use touch id to over ride entering your login password each time? You will have to use face ID to sign in to all of your bank apps?? That is so unorthodox and the main reason I will not be getting the X.

    The way Apple coded FaceID is that any app that used TouchID as a login automatically works with FaceID. You won't have to do anything differently.

    It will be a lot different....Touch ID vs face ID. I have to raise the phone to my face to unlock an app...Silly in my opinion

    Open app, FaceID automatically scans and unlocks. You'll be looking at the phone already if you opened the app. It's not like an Iris scanner or other facial recognition. You don't have to hold the phone right in front of your face. You just look at the screen. Or at least that's supposed to be how it works.
