Apple fans eagerly anticipate the arrival of new iPhones every year, and the rumors about the upcoming iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max have been swirling for months. One of the most exciting new features is the capacitive solid-state buttons, which will bring new functionality and customization options.
A recent post on the MacRumors forums shed some light on how these buttons will work. The iPhone 15 Pro will likely have a unified volume button and a new customizable Action button that can be customized to perform various tasks. This includes the signature iPhone mute switch. It also has to toggle the orientation lock, activate the flashlight, low power mode, and more.
One of the standout features of these new buttons is the ability to customize their sensitivity. Apple is reportedly implementing a dedicated low-energy microprocessor that will be able to sense user presses and hold gestures. This chip will also power the Taptic Engine feedback, providing a more tactile and responsive experience.
Users will be able to adjust the sensitivity of the buttons in Settings. It will allow them to find the perfect balance between responsiveness and accidental presses. Another benefit of this new technology is that the buttons will be able to work with phone cases and even with gloves.
In addition to the solid-state buttons, the iPhone 15 Pro will feature a new low-energy chip. This chip will power the NFC, Bluetooth LE, and UW chips. This chip will work even when the phone is powered off, and the battery is completely drained, allowing for better efficiency and functionality.
