Apple’s iPhone 15 Pro could get solid-state power and volume buttons with a new report adding fuel to the fire already started by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
Kuo had already suggested that the iPhone 15 Pro models would not have clicky buttons, with Apple opting for harder buttons that would respond to touch and vibrate a motor to simulate a click.
Now, Barclays analysts Blaine Curtis and Tom O’Malley believe a component supplier has hinted at the same thing.
Cirrus Logic is a company that makes components designed for Apple’s Taptic Engine vibration motors, and its CEO John Forsyth recently said the company is working on “strategic customer engagement” on new components for smartphones next year.
MacRumors Reports that Barclays analysts see only one way going.
When looking at potential use cases, the biggest change in the new iPhone models next year is the removal of buttons, which would require additional drivers for the haptics engine, making it the most likely use case for new content.
The reason for solid-state buttons is simple — they won’t let any water in Making an iPhone more water resistant will ensure that those who get the phone wet are less likely to break it Apple is also believed to be working on ditching the physical charging port for the same reason.
If Apple follows its previous release cadence, we can expect it to announce the iPhone 15 lineup along with the iPhone 15 Pro in September next year.
