iPhone 15 Pro Buttonless Design
On the evening of October 27, the official announcement of the fourth fiscal quarter earnings report showed that the sales performance of the iPhone 14 Series was not bad, and Apple CEO Cook said that overall satisfaction with the iPhone 14 Series was as high as 98%.
Just when everyone is still discussing the iPhone 14 Series, Ming-Chi Kuo, who has always been famous for breaking news about Apple, released a heavy burst of news about the iPhone 15 on his Twitter handles, which said that in addition to the use of USD-C ports, the next generation iPhone will also another major upgrade – The Buttonless Design.
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 (similar to the home button design of iPhone 7/8/SE2 & 3) to replace the physical/mechanical button design.
There will be Taptic Engines located on the internal left and right sides to provide force feedback to make users feel like they are pressing physical buttons.
Due to this design change, the number of Taptic Engines used in each iPhone will increase from the current one to three. As a result, the existing Taptic Engine suppliers, Luxshare ICT (1st supplier) and AAC Technologies (2nd supplier) will be significant beneficiaries.
It is expected that high-end Android smartphones will also follow Apple’s design to create new selling points, which is a structural positive for the mobile phone vibrator industry.Ming-Chi Kuo said.
In addition to major upgrades of iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max’s changes to the volume and power buttons, the new generation of iPhones will also see changes in the interface.
Ming-Chi Kuo said that the iPhone 15 would use the USD-C port instead of Apple’s proprietary Lightning port, both to meet the new EU regulations and to be more in line with mainstream standards for file transfers. The Lightning port has been eliminated on the latest iPads, so this change is likely to appear on next year’s iPhone 15 as well.
In addition, previously there were many explosions that the iPhone 15 Pro will use the 8P lens, to further improve the imaging. However, Ming-Chi Kuo predicts that the rumored iPhone 15 Pro with an 8P lens is unlikely, meaning the machine will not have an 8P lens.
