The next year’s iPhone 15 Pro models are now expected to feature a solid-state design for providing a haptic feedback instead of physical mechanical buttons.
A popular analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said in a tweet that a solid-state button will work identical to the 2nd-generation Touch ID which aren’t moved physically and provides a small clicky haptic feedback through Taptic Engine.
So, Apple is reportedly planning to include total of three Taptic Engines in the iPhone 15 Pro models. A few years ago, the major change was also rumored to feature on Apple Watch but it never happend till now.
Owing to this major change, Kuo expects shipments of Tap Engine will grow by 80% to 100% which will be definitely supplied by China-based manufacturer – Luxshare.
Moreover, it is currently speculated confirmed that the forthcoming entire iPhone 15 will have USB-C support as Greg Joswaik confirmed that Apple will have to comply with the EU rule.
