From the picture above, many people predicted that Apple could use this material to improve the accuracy, longevity of the physical buttons, and the most likely candidate is the Home button. The usual physical buttons designed very cumbersome but accuracy is not high, and especially the life of these keys very poor. The most typical example is the iPhone's Home button, the button often become inaccurate and damaged after a short period of use. The reduced elasticity is one of the main reasons leading to a short life span, and this new material is expected to be solved it.
