No more buttons on iPhone 15?

The next iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max could see the disappearance of the power and volume buttons.

According to the latest indiscretions gathered by Taiwanese analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the volume and power buttons on the sides of the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max may cease to exist. More concretely, they will be replaced by invisible "touch" buttons, similar to the Home button of the iPhone 7 and 8.

iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max, physical buttons replaced by taptic sensors

The addition of "taptic" motors will provide a slight vibration and therefore a tactile feedback so that the user understands that he has pressed, even if the surface is homogeneous, without growth. A proven technology therefore, and somewhat distant from a patent filed this year by Apple and describing such invisible buttons, but using an optical system.

According to Kuo, after this iPhone, high-end Android smartphones should infiltrate the breach and offer them as quickly, but after Apple, such functionality.
