Apple is expected to ditch the Home button with the iPhone 8, but that could create some new problems, like, “How will you get back to the Home screen?”

Switching between apps wouldn’t be the same without a Home button to click. An interesting new iPhone 8 concept out of Italy explores how changes within iOS could provide a seamless experience if Apple removes the only navigation button on the iPhone.

Check it out:

The iPhone 8 is expected to feature a bezel-free OLED display that curves at the edges. By embedding Touch ID into the display, Apple will be able to reduce the size of the bottom bezel. A thin bezel at the top will likely be necessary for the selfie camera and rumored 3D sensor.

Rumors have also speculated new iPhone 8 features will include wireless charging, 3D sensors for facial recognition, augmented reality tech, improved dual-lens cameras and an all-glass body.

Apple isn’t expected to unveil the next-generation iPhone until this fall.
