Several rumors have advanced since the iPhone 15 Pro will hit the market without physical buttons.
But now a patent reveals exactly what Apple’s solid-state button will look and work like. And the news is quite interesting.
iPhone 15 Pro: solid-state button will react to various types of pressure and force
In the next generation of iPhone, Apple will continue to differentiate base models from Pro models [email protected]
There have already been several rumors that have advanced that the next iPhone 15 Pro will arrive without physical buttons. Apparently, Apple wants its iconic smartphone to be free of bulges and wires and is trying to find the best solutions to make this wish come true.
However, several regular Apple informants, such as analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, have for some time been advancing that the next iPhone Pro model will replace the physical buttons with solid-state buttons.
In other words, the buttons will appear on the screen and respond to interactions with feedback that will simulate the reaction of conventional physical buttons.
But now a patent registered by Apple has been revealed that shows that these solid-state buttons can bring more functions.
According to the documentation presented, the power button, as well as the volume button on the iPhone 15 Pro will support force detection. This means that both will respond to different types of force or pressure to perform different operations.
But let’s go to practical examples. Lightly pressing the volume button will increase the sound gradually and slowly, while pressing harder will bring the volume to maximum faster.
The same concept will be applied to the on/off button. But here different pressures translate into different operations. This allows this button to function as a kind of shortcut button that provides quick and immediate access to a series of functionalities.
It should be noted that the solid-state buttons will only be integrated into the iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max (or Ultra, we still don’t know the final designation). This will be one more attribute that will differentiate the more advanced models from the base models.
