Apple's iPhone 7 is being tipped to feature a new home button, and will be both waterproof and dustproof, according to a new report.

There have been rumblings of late that the iPhone 7 will be waterproof, and now a new report indicates that the handset will be both water- and dustproof.

A source somewhere in Apple’s supply chain told DigiTimes that Apple’s new device has completed its third round of testing. As well as its resistance to the elements, the new iPhone is also being tipped to feature a new home button.

This new button is said to be more of a sensor than a button, so you’ll just have to place your finger on it rather than press it.

This is just the latest in a series of reports and rumours in recent weeks; there have been leaks, rumours, and even a patent indicating that a waterproof iPhone is on the way.
