According to a report by Macotakara, the iPhone 7 will have a new feature – a capacitive home button with support for 3D Touch.

The device would sport a virtual button that could simulate the physical sensations of the current button, thanks to haptic feedback.

It would operate on the same technology as Force Touch trackpads on MacBook Pros.

In addition to enhancing the robustness of the smartphone, this development would also help to make the device more waterproof.

The Japanese site also reports that a Space Black version of the iPhone 7 will be introduced, adding up to a total of five colors, including space gray, gold, rose gold and silver.
