iPhone 15 Pro models to feature button less design and USB-C port

TF Securities analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo claims that the upcoming iPhone 15 Pro lineup will feature an all-new buttonless design and USB-C port.

This year the EU passed a new rule for all OEMs to switch to USB-C ports in their portable devices to offer consumers the convenience of using a common charger and reduce e-waste by eliminating the need to purchase different chargers for different devices.

At a recent conference, Apple’s marketing chief confirmed that the company will finally adopt the USB-C tech for future iPhones in compliance with the law. Although the directive instructs manufacturers to switch to USB-C ports by the Autumn of 2024, Kuo believes that the tech giant would implement the change next year, along with a new buttonless design.

iPhone 15 Pro to be equipped with additional Taptic Engines to support buttonless design

Apple uses Taptic Engines in iPhones and MacBooks trackpads to give a feeling that they were physically depressed. For example, MacBooks’ trackpads do not move when they are pressed down but give a feeling that they were because of Taptic Engines.

Now the tech giant is going to expand the same tech in the buttons of the 2023 iPhone Pro lineup, probably to maintain the gap between standard and Pro models.

According to the analyst, the volume and power buttons on iPhone 15 Pro will feature a solid-state button design instead of the physical button design. The high-end iPhone models will be equipped with more Taptic Engines to provide force feedback to users.

Kuo speculates that the iPhone 15 Pro design change will inspire Android manufacturers to make the switch as well.

It is also reported that iPhone 15 Pro models will feature a “punch-hole” display, periscope lens with 5x optical zoom, 8GB of RAM, and a new iPhone 15 Ultra would replace the iPhone 15 Pro Max model.
