Apple plans to announce the iPhone 15 series by the end of 2023. While this seems far. But the leaks of the next set of iPhones have already started surfacing. The company has confirmed that the next set of iPhones will have support for USB-C. Now, next comes Apple’s plan to ditch the physical button design. The Apple iPhone 15 Pro models may be different from the previous ones in design.
Design Difference In New iPhones
As per the resources, Apple iPhone 15 Pro and Apple iPhone 15 Pro Max models may have solid-state button designs. This is shared by Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. Through this, the users don’t have to physically press the button. It will respond itself. This is the same as the home button design seen on iPhone 7, iPhone 8, and a few other models.
Kuo tweeted on Twitter, “My latest survey indicates that the volume button and power button of two high-end iPhone 15/2H23 new iPhone models may adopt a solid-state button design to replace the physical/mechanical button design”.
As per the cited sources, it will have Taptic Engines, which will be “located internally on left and right sides to provide force feedback to make users feel like they are pressing physical buttons.”
It hints that Apple will have more space to put in a bigger battery inside the devices. However, the company has not clarified this right now. The cited source says, that the upcoming iPhones will come with three Taptic Engines, instead of one vibration motor that is available on current devices.
It will offer a solid-state button design. Even the iPhone 15 series is said to finally feature a USB-C port. Apple has reportedly confirmed this to The Verge.
The Pro models will likely retain the punch-hole display design seen on this year’s iPhones. It will be powered by Apple’s next-generation A17 Bionic chipset and run on iOS 17.
