The introduction of four and five finger gestures in iOS 4.3 by apple may lead to decision to drop the home button from the next generation iPad and iPhone. The users would need to use the four or five finger pinch and swipe motions exclusively for the home screen and task switcher.
The interface will also change and the company is ready to develop more iOS parallels to Mac apps. Apple will charge extra for the iLife apps through the App Store. The home button was previously removed by Google and devices like Motorola Xoom have no front buttons.
