iOS 8 Mission Control Concept Video Shows Combined Interface for Control Center & Multitasking

If you're like me, you probably think we don't really need a home button on our iPhone or iPad's anymore ...except for Touch ID. But we don't need a physical button. It's the part that can often get issues, so why not just have touch screen buttons?

Designer Bill Labus, may hate tapping that Home Button, as much as I do. He made a concept of a unified Control Center and Multitasking screen (which is used to quickly switch between apps), activated by a swipe up from the bottom of the screen, removing the need to double-tap the Home Button.  The video of this concept was posted to YouTube by The Tech Block.

"I find double-clicking the home button to be irritating- there's a noticeable delay between the second click and the multitasking view appearing, and in my haste I often accidentally triple-click the home button, forcing me to wait while the OS bounces into, and back out of, multitasking." - Bill Labus

A really nice concept. I think it would make a great addition to iOS 8. If only Apple could make that Home Button a touch sensitive button (and not physical), as well.  Check out Bill's full post on his dribble page.
