The first major difference every new iPhone X owner will notice is the lack of a physical Home button. Muscle memory will keep many people tapping a non-existent button, at least for a few days before they get used to swiping up. For those who prefer tapping a button, there is a work around - you can create a virtual Home button using iOS's Assistive Touch feature found in the Accessibility settings. Here's how to do it on iPhone or iPad:
Replacing a broken home button with a virtual one can be achieved using stock iOS Accessibility settings, or with a variety of jailbreak options. In some cases, using a virtual home button is preferable to pressing the physical button even if there's no malfunction involved. vHome is a jailbreak tweak that provides a slick option to add virtual home and sleep buttons to iOS.
Once installed, vHome adds a representation of the iPhone 5 home button as an overlay to the iOS display. The virtual button will act just like the physical version, with a single or double tap duplicating the function of the real thing. vHome gets interesting when this virtual button is relocated to the top half of the screen. In this case, the button will change into a likeness of the sleep/power button.

The Taiwanese website's supply chain sources believe that the so-called "iPhone 5S" will be released sometime in August alongside the rumored budget iPhone. Previous rumors have also suggested that the new iPhone will feature a new 13 megapixel camera with a larger rear flash, and it will be available in an iPod touch-like array of colors.
