What is a "solid state" home button, and how is it different from the 6s button?
Can you also confirm that the iPhone 7 no longer uses sapphire in any of the components? A scratch test with different Mohs scale mineral picks on a YouTube channel (JerryRigEverything) showed that both the home button and the camera cover scratch with a pick of hardness 6. Quartz has hardness 7, so that will mean that any sand in your pocket will not only leave scratches on the aluminium body but on the camera and home button as well.
I recon Apple is winding down its large-scale sapphire production experiment.
