It's not dead yet (the Home button)

Cult of Mac Today
If you thought the good ol’ Home button was on its way out, think again.
The Home button has been a fixture on iOS and iPadOS devices since 2007, but Apple seems to be slowly phasing it out in favor of gestures and Face ID.
However, a leak of an entry-level iPad due later this year suggests Apple may not be done with the Home button quite yet.
To me, the Home button is anachronistic, but maybe Apple is right.
Touch ID continues to be popular with many people, and old habits die hard. I’ll bet there’s a sizable number of users who actively want a Home button and will buy a new iPad because it has one.

Went to Apple Store for AirTags. Sold out.

Sales rep. said there's new stock daily. But all go within 30mins of being on shelves. Sales rocketing because of airports/airlines losing luggage.

This helps lock users into iPhones + may drive upgrades for Precision Finding.
One more thing ...
