About the iPhone 15 Pro, there have been rumours for a time. Numerous leaks also alluded to intriguing design modifications. For instance, the USB-C port has taken the place of the Lightning port, and a new mute button has been added. Additionally, it was reported that the iPhone 15 Pro versions would attempt to fully do away with physical buttons in favour of somewhat haptic ones for a “button-less” appearance. But perhaps this won’t actually happen.
Leading Apple vendor Cirrus Logic acknowledged as reported by MacRumors that the company had actually abandoned the switch from physical buttons to solid-state ones. The earlier rumour spread by renowned analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is confirmed by this information. “That said, among the HPMS opportunities we have discussed, a new product that we mentioned in previous shareholder letters as being scheduled for introduction this autumn is not expected to come to market as planned,” Cirrus Logic wrote in its shareholders’ letter for Q4 FY23. We are deleting the earnings associated with this element from our internal model because we currently have minimal insight into our customer’s future plans for this product.
In the past, it was anticipated that the high-performance mixed-signal (HPMS) segment of Cirrus Logic, utilised in iPhones, will supply two taptic engines for the iPhone 15 Pro versions. This would have given the impression of physically pressing the button without doing so. This claim makes a suggestion that the iPhone 15 Pro versions will no longer have Solid-State Buttons. However, this does not mean that the idea has completely failed. For its 2024 versions, the iPhone 16 Pro and the 16 Pro Max, Cirrus Logic’s HPMS could enable Apple to realise its vision of “buttonless iPhones.”
Nevertheless, there will nevertheless be a few intriguing adjustments to anticipate. A USB-C port and Dynamic Island are meant to be included with the complete lineup. According to rumours, the Pro models include smaller bezels, a bigger camera hump, and—for the iPhone 16 Pro Max—periscope lenses. The A15 Bionic chip will likely be found inside the iPhone 15 and 15 Plus, while the future A16 Bionic chip will be located inside the Pro models. Additionally, the series is anticipated to provide battery enhancements and performance gains, and arrive pre-installed with iOS 17, which is anticipated during WWDC 2023.
We can only wait for more information to appear online or for some official facts to arrive as the iPhone 15 series will most likely be unveiled in the second week of September.
