why can't the 'virtual buttons' be a 'five button' dock where Touch ID and a 3dTouch home region is reserved.
That said, I'm not yet convinced... I'm waiting for where the ear speaker and camera will be placed on the bezel. I'm wondering if it's 5.15" because we still need a .6" bezel at the top for a front facing camera and ear speaker.

My 6s with a cracked screen [barely] survived a 3 second dunk in 6 inches of water this weekend.
Within the hour I had blow dried it for 10 minutes, and after getting poor results, I then buried it 8 hours in a pound of rice (best desiccant you can get).
Before the rice, I was still getting an issue with recognizing no headphones (NOTE: reason why the headphone jack is an issue is that there appears to be a electronics that detects a jack in place, and it is very water sensitive) , and it wasn't charging, and it took several tries to get it to backup to iTunes (to the point I was concerned I had toasted it). After the rice, everything seems to be good (48 hours and counting).
I'm counting down the months to my iP8, as I have a couple 'Pepsi Syndrome' events a year.

He literally took the wind out of the sails of all the haters and naysayers predicting more doom and gloom for Apple and Swift.
When you make your own compilers AND your own SOC (CPU, GPU, RAM, Cache, etc.), and your own OS, you have an amazing level of high powered genius in the room, and the potential for a lot of research and publications. and my guess is This IS Apple's Competitive advantage, and I wouldn't be surprised that the compiler designers, the chip designers, and the Kernel developers are limited by Apple Management in what they can say to the world writ large.
I don't think it's the case here, as I see Chris moving on to a new technical challenge, and not to be the next Richard Stallman.
