If you miss the iPhone’s physical property button, you are not alone. President Trump misses it, also.
How do we know? For the reason that The Donald tweeted it to his 66 million followers on Friday evening.
Addressing Apple CEO Tim Cook straight, Trump wrote, “To Tim: The Button on the IPhone was FAR much better than the Swipe!”

Trump swapped his Android handset for an iPhone in early 2017 when all of Apple’s handsets nonetheless had a physical property button.
In the very same year, the tech giant launched the iPhone X, the very first Apple handset to function an edge-to-edge show — and no property button. With the new style, customers had to swipe up from the bottom of the device to access the property screen.
The timing of Trump’s tweet lamenting the loss of the property button suggests he not too long ago upgraded to one particular of Apple’s most up-to-date handsets — the iPhone 11, 11 Pro, or 11 Pro Max.
But in spite of getting one particular of the most strong men and women in the planet, we do not see Apple altering course and adding a physical property button to the iPhone 12 when it comes out (in all probability) subsequent year.
What to do …
Options? Nicely, Trump could dive into his iPhone’s settings and add an in-show property button (Settings>Touch>Assistive Touch — much more detailed guidelines right here), or think about returning to Android for a thing like Samsung’s Galaxy S10 and Note 10 phones, which have in-show property buttons. Although thinking about the value of his job an’ all, he’d want to be confident it has the repair for that dodgy fingerprint scanner.
But if Trump definitely desires a property button and an Apple telephone, he’ll have to switch to the iPhone eight, which Apple continues to sell, or think about the iPhone SE two, if and when it seems.
