Apple button
« on: December 19, 2020, 07:12:22 AM »

My wife has an iPad Pro v3 (2020 model) with the large screen. It provides face recognition and has no fingerprint reader or Apple home button. I can’t imagine how I would get on without the button, which I use to get back to the shell, and when I have tried her machine I am completely lost. I really wish Apple provided ‘with’ and ‘without button’ models as a choice.

Agreed, buttons are better.

When touch screen smart phones first appeared I held off from buying one for a very long time, because I hated the idea of not having tactile buttons to answer/reject calls.  I was convinced I would accidentally reject calls I wanted to accept, and vice versa.

A decade or so later with various generations of iPhone my mind has not changed.  I still encounter a brief moment of dread when the damn thing rings... will my wet, or gloved, or shaking (if cold) finger work?   Will I be able to swipe in the right direction?  Will I need to use two hands, thereby dropping something I am holding? Or letting go of a handrail in a perilous place, and falling over?

With the buttonless iPad, how do you know which way up you are holding it?  That might matter for the sakes of cameras/microphones.

easy to tell, the power button should be top right.
if it isn't then you don't have it "top up".

On the Air 4 the power button is the fingerprint reader ! Not sure why they didn’t use Face ID
