Next iPhone to have no home button?

Next iPhone to have no home button?
When Apple release iOS beta, we usually check the new features. But for some, they dive their nose into it and have a look around. It makes them feel more like home. Well, here we have again, rumours for Apple’s next iPhone. In the iOS codes, you’ll see ‘iPhone 3, 1’ which is the iPhone 4 that we all have right now, and there’s also the ‘iPhone 3, 2’ which is Verizon’s CDMA iPhone. But then there’s another ‘iPhone 3,3’ which means there’s another yet-to-be-revealed iPhone 4? This might be the white iPhone 4 that will never see the day of light.
In the codes there’s also two new-generation iPhones (4,1 and 4,2) and three new iPads (2,1; 2,2; and 2,3), which matches previous rumours of the 3 versions of iPad 2, which are GSM, CDMA, and WiFi-only models. There’s not much to know from here, besides a missing iPhone 4, three new models of iPad 2, and new iPhones using iOS 4.3.
However, BGR is claiming it’s heard from sources that the next iPhone / iPad models will eschew the physical home button altogether in lieu of the new multi-finger gestures and that employees at Cupertino are already testing such devices. Cool, at least in the future we don’t have to worry about iPhones with damaged home buttons.
