Apple will remove physical buttons on iPhone 15

iPhone 15 will change the way we use phones. Apple will remove the physical buttons in it.

Apple is a company not particularly known for rushing to make changes to its portfolio. Suffice it to say, the introduction of the Dynamic Island is the biggest change to the look of iPhones since 2017, when the world first saw Apple’s notch. However, this does not mean that there have been few changes between generations. The camera system has been redesigned, the phones have received a less polished look, and now the change from USB-C to Lightning should be added to the list of changes, which Apple admitted in an interview. However, this is not the only change we can expect in next year’s model.

It is believed that the iPhone 15 will also get rid of physical buttons

As for Apple, like what, but the attempt to remove the physical buttons is quite a lot. a similar move was made first on iPods and later on iPhones to ditch the Home button in later models. Meanwhile, the phone’s volume control and mute buttons have remained unchanged for years. However, Apple has apparently stated that this cannot be the case, and the company’s customers can no longer use this outdated technology, so they will trade up to the next version of the phone. For what? Instead of physical buttons, iPhones will have haptic counterparts, as was the case with the Home button in 2016. According to the leak, such a solution should be considered more durable and convenient than traditional buttons.

It should be noted here that Apple is not the first or even one of the first companies to test such an idea. Huawei Mate 30 Pro can already boast of “virtual volume buttons”, and iea haptic triggers are known to everyone who uses, for example, Asus from the ROG series. However, while the touch-sensitive areas work just as well for games as they do for other apps (squeeze the phone/tap the back cover to launch a specific app), keep in mind that the volume and power buttons perform a slightly different function.

All because, at least in my case, these buttons are often used “blindly”. Knowing where they are, I can adjust the volume of my headphones without taking my phone out of my pocket, and in the morning I don’t have to search for a power button that turns off the alarm and sets it. sleep mode. So I can see at least a few areas where the lack of physical buttons might be inconvenient, but I don’t really see what advantages such a system would have. The only thing that comes to mind is easier waterproofing, since liquid will have fewer holes to enter the device.

Will you replace physical buttons with haptics?
