Rumor: Apple removing Home Button on the next iPad and iPhone?
 
Boy Genius is reporting that, according to a source, iPad 2 wonít have a physical home button and will rely completely on the multitouch gestures introduced in the iOS 4.3 beta. They were also told this change may be extended to the iPhone 5 later this year.
We have exclusively been told that the reason Apple just added multitouch gestures for the iPad in the latest iOS 4.3 beta is because the iPad will be losing the home button [...] Our source said Apple employees are already testing iPads and iPhones with no home buttons on the Apple campus, and itís possible we will see this new change materialize with the next-generation iPad and iPhone devices set to launch this year.
In addition, they state that Photo Booth (more evidence of a front-facing iPad camera) and iLife apps will be available on the iPad around the same time the iPad 2 hits the market.


Is this good or bad?

i wonder with the disappearance of the home button, if Apple is making moves to make the iphone screen bigger.

I dont think that they will. The home button is too useful.
Will the iPad and iPhone home buttons go away? Probably not
