Apple removes Home Button in new iPhone X and also announces iPhone 8

Apple held their annual iPhone unveiling today and it looks like the company’s war on buttons will continue. The iPhone X will remove the Home Button and replace it with a fully glass screen. Meanwhile, the iPhone 8 will offer an incremental upgrade over the currently-available iPhone 7, and it’ll retain the Home Button.

More details on both phone models can be found after the break.
