iPhone 8 Will Not Have a Home Button According to Rumored Specs

Apple has not revealed the release date for the iPhone 8, yet speculations about the highly-anticipated device continue to circulate over the internet. The latest on its rumored features seem to confirm the scrapping of the Home button.

Images of the alleged dummy phone were leaked recently and it confirmed some of the talk about Apple’s latest gadget featuring a bezel-less display. The 5.8-inch OLED screen, meanwhile, envelops the whole front face of the device which is similar to that of the Samsung Galaxy S8 Edge.

While Apple fans are still trying to get used to the audio jack-free iPhone 7, the Cupertino-based company is trying to force-feed another innovation. Instead of the Home button at the bottom, users will see a Touch Bar that will likely include a Touch ID and fingerprint sensor, which will be integrated into the display.


If the rumors prove true, users won’t need to push a button; rather, they just have to rest their fingers on this specific spot to access the menu.

The rumored specs for the iPhone 8 also elude to an upgrade of the secondary speaker for the device. This is a departure from its design for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus which utilized the earpiece as a secondary speaker, but didn’t really impress users.

This change will reportedly enhance the audio quality. However, there are no specifics yet, particularly on whether the quality will be similar to the primary loudspeaker on the iPhone 7 dual stereo device.

The iPhone 8 will supposedly also be as thin as its predecessor (7.1mm) and have the same size overall. It should, however, look larger due to the bezel-less display. The other rumored specifications include wireless charging, 3GB of RAM, and a “3D-sensing front camera.” It’s also rumored that the device will come bundled with the wireless AirPods to replace the earpieces that come with the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

Previous reports alleged that the iPhone 8 will have 30% more battery life, thanks to having an L-shaped battery pack. If that proves true, the upgrade will likely push the price of the device over $ 1,000, which is $ 200 more than the current generation of Apple’s flagship phone.

The iPhone 8 will reportedly be released in the fall of 2017, although Apple has yet to confirm this.

Leaked Screenshot Shows Start Button Is Back In Windows 8.1

Windows Blue is now officially Windows 8.1. It will enter into a public beta in June. It’s rumored that the start button and a boot to desktop mode will be offered alongside numerous other updates. Thanks to a leaked screenshot, we can seemingly confirm one of those rumors.

Paul Thurrot’s Supersite for Windows shared the following screenshot today that shows the Start button is back in Windows 8.1, and it’s looking better than ever:

Leaked Screenshot of Windows 8.1 Show Start Button

The start button will behave mostly as it did in Windows 7 with a few key Windows 8 eccentricities. For starters, hovering over the Start button changes it color in much the same way the Start charm changes color in the current build of Windows 8. It’s also impossible to turn off the Start button, at least for now. That should ensure that newcomers to Windows 8 won’t be confused by the lack of a start button.

Thurrot also reveals two more really interesting tidbits about Windows 8.1. The first is that you can use your own wallpapers now as backgrounds in the Start menu. Previously, you could only use a small number of Microsoft-designed illustrations and colors. Secondly, a boot to desktop mode is indeed present, but it is turned off by default. It’s understandable as Microsoft is still trying to sell consumers on the walled garden Start screen experience.

Microsoft will presumably make all of this and more official later in June when it releases the Windows 8.1 public preview on June 26.

LinkedIn Launches Company Follow Button (How to Add It Now)

linkedin logo fabricintroductory3

Looking to generate more followers for your awesomely optimized LinkedIn Company Page? (It is awesomely optimized, right?) This morning, LinkedIn made it just a little bit easier to generate company followers with the launch of its new follow button. Like Twitter’s follow button and Facebook’s like button, LinkedIn’s version makes it simple for your website visitors to follow your company’s LinkedIn page with just one click. No navigating to the LinkedIn website required!

And yes, you should want some more followers. In a recent study of over 5,000 businesses, HubSpot found that traffic from LinkedIn generated the highest visitor-to-lead conversion rate at 2.74%, almost 3 times higher (277%) than both Twitter (.69%) and Facebook (.77%). In other words, increasing your reach on LinkedIn will likely increase your website’s LinkedIn referral traffic, and because of the powerful conversion rate of LinkedIn traffic, you’ll likely see an increase in leads, too!

Convinced you should spend some time building the reach of your LinkedIn Company Page? Here’s how to add the new follow button to your website. It’s easy!

How to Install the LinkedIn Follow Button

1) Visit https://developer.linkedin.com/plugins/follow-company

2) Enter your company name or ID. (Or select your company as you begin typing and the dropdown menu appears.)

company name follow button23) Choose your button’s count mode preference — whether or not you’d like the button to display your LinkedIn Company Page’s follower count.

4) Click “Get Code,” and voila! Copy and paste this code onto your website and blog where you’d like the button to appear (your About Us page, your blog’s sidebar, and your homepage are great places to start). Now you’ll start easily converting website visitors into new LinkedIn Company Page followers.

But … Do More Than Just Add the Button

When your website visitors click the LinkedIn follow button on your website, they’ll automatically follow your company if they’re already logged in to LinkedIn (or they’ll get prompted to log in first if they’re not). As a result, these visitors will start receiving the status updates you publish to your LinkedIn Company Page in their LinkedIn homepage’s updates feed.

But the value of adding the LinkedIn follow button is dependent on how effectively you use your LinkedIn Company Page to begin with. If you rarely or never post status updates to your company page, the value of the new followers you generate from the LinkedIn follow button is moot.

So if you don’t have company status updates installed on your company page, learn how to do so here. And start using them regularly! While you’re at it, start improving your company page so new followers have a reason to follow you to begin with. Here are a few blog posts that will help:

And, what are you waiting for? Go add the LinkedIn follow button now! And start following HubSpot’s LinkedIn Company Page while you’re at it ;-)
