iPhone 7 Home button may not be love at first feel
Tech journalists who got their hands on an iPhone 7 Wednesday sometimes felt uneasy with what they were touching.
The most off-putting feature seemed to be the Home button. The once satisfying click of the button has a new sensation thanks to a Taptic Engine. The response to its touch ranged from “awful” to “weird” to the more delicate “it will take some getting used to.”
“It doesn’t feel like a button at all,” Dieter Bahn of The Verge wrote. “It’s a bummer.”
