    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!

    Yes, I will miss it, but I welcome the change. Looking forward to something new a different from Apple. Four years with the same design was a bit much.

    I will not miss it. Mainly because I ordered the iPhone 8. So I guess the correct answer will be yes I will miss it. I like it more than ever since 3D Touch.

    I'm not married to the home button, but I will miss it if the new swiping navigation turns out to be as annoying as it looks. That's one of the reasons I'm not committing to the X right now. I have to at least hear about how well it works from people who have had more than just a few minutes with the phone.

    I think everyone will get used to it. If I use an Android or Windows phone and come back to my iPhone, I am always tapping beside the home button for the back button, but for some reason it never works.

    I like the changes to a gesture based system. I loved webos as well. But I won't get the X this year. I'll wait to see what they release next year.

    Nope, not at all, I love gestures and if Blackberry had to app ecosystem I would have gone BB10, so this the iPhone X is the phone I’ve been waiting for ever since.

    I suspect the first hundred times I attempt to click the non-existent home button, I will miss it greatly. But, I'll adapt and soon it will be as though it never existed. Either that, or I'll take it back and swap it for an 8.

    As a former Blackberry 10 user, I am looking forward to using gestures to unlock and navigate the device. I loved OS10 and would probably still be using it, if they had the app support.

    I am looking forward to OCT 27th when I can preorder my new iPhone X.

    I won't miss the home button that much since I like the gesture method to change apps.

    I’m not really going to know how much I’ll miss the home button until I’ve had my hands on an iPhone X for a week or so. I’m a creature of habit and I know I’m going to be ghost pressing the crap out of the home button for at least a week but I’m hoping I can re-train myself pretty quickly.

    I had the GS8 so I got a little use to no home button. Although, those devices (and other Androids) and onscreen buttons. They I see it is that 2 main functions I used the home button for (go home and recent apps) are the gestures I have to get used to. The other functions that I use (Siri, Apple Pay, etc) have just been relocated to the side button. So yes it will take some getting use to. After all been using a home button on an iPhone since 2007. But it is time to get rid of it. I'm looking forward to the change.

    If you are several screens away from the home screen what will be the shortcut to get to the home screen? Currently you click the home button to take you to the home screen.

    Thanks

    I’m only going to miss the home button when I need to quickly and quietly access my phone at work during times when I don’t want it to be so obvious I’m accessing my phone. I feel like face id will make it a little more obvious to those around me but not a deal breaker or anything I’m actually overly concerned or worried about as I’m sure there will be ways to figure out how to discreetly unlock by face.

    It does, doesn’t it?
    It’ll be nice to have access to both Face ID and Touch ID on an iPhone.. maybe in the upcoming years.

    I don't think I will miss it. That being said, it will probably take me about a week or two to get used to not having the home button, but I like the move towards gestures on the OS.

    Thanks for that, but that doesn't answer the question. That will take you to the screen that the app is on, but if that screen is three or four screens away from the home screen what is the shortcut to get to the home screen?

    I do too!
    I enjoy gestures to be honest.

    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.
