iPhone 15 Pro: No Solid-State Buttons Confirmed – Good or Bad News for Fans?

So, The iPhone 15 Pro has been the talk of the town lately, with rumors suggesting major design changes. Among these, the replacement of the Lightning port with USB-C and the adoption of a new mute button have been widely discussed. However, one of the most anticipated features may not come to fruition after all: the “button-less” design, which was expected to replace physical buttons with haptic ones. Here’s what we know so far.

Physical Buttons are Not Dead Yet!

According to a recent statement from Cirrus Logic ( mac rumours ), the transition to solid-state buttons has been ditched in favor of physical buttons. This confirms an earlier rumor from well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. In its shareholders’ letter for Q4 FY23, Cirrus Logic stated that a new product expected to be introduced in the fall is no longer coming to market as planned. Although this does not signify the end of the plan, it suggests that solid-state buttons will not be a feature of the iPhone 15 Pro.

What’s Next for Buttonless iPhones?

While the iPhone 15 Pro may not be entirely “button-less,” there are still several interesting changes to look forward to. The entire lineup is expected to have a USB-C port and Dynamic Island. The Pro models are rumored to have thinner bezels, a larger camera hump, and a periscope lens (for the iPhone 16 Pro Max). The iPhone 15 and 15 Plus are likely to pack the A15 Bionic chip, while the Pro models are expected to have the upcoming A16 Bionic chip. The lineup is also anticipated to offer battery improvements and performance boosts and come with iOS 17 out of the box at WWDC 2023.

What About the iPhone 16 Pro and 16 Pro Max?

While the iPhone 15 Pro may not have solid-state buttons, Cirrus Logic’s HPMS may still help Apple achieve its goal of buttonless iPhones for its 2024 models. The iPhone 16 Pro and 16 Pro Max may still feature this design, among other new features.

When Will the iPhone 15 Series Be Released?

The iPhone 15 series is expected to be released in the second week of September, with further details likely to surface online or be announced officially. Until then, we can enjoy the leaks and stay tuned for more information!


The iPhone 15 Pro may not have solid-state buttons after all, but there are still plenty of exciting changes on the horizon.
