On the iPhone 15 Pro series, the two volume buttons will merge into one.
Earlier this month, sources said that with the release of the iPhone 15, Apple will remove the proprietary volume switch from its smartphones, and it will be replaced by a single volume rocker. Leaked CAD renders confirm this information.
In the flagship models of the iPhone 15, two volume buttons will merge into one. And the switch to switch to silent mode will become a regular key, according to 9To5Mac.
At the same time, there are rumors that these buttons will become touch-sensitive, which will mimic the feeling of pressing in the spirit of the Home button in the iPhone SE. Instead of a physical click, the components will provide tactile feedback using the built-in Taptic Engine.
These changes will be firmware-exclusive – the base iPhone 15 and 15 Plus will still have two mechanical buttons and no changes are expected. But these models will get Dynamic Island, which in the current generation is the exclusive “firmware”.
iPhone 15 Pro will rise in price for the first time since the release of the iPhone X
As you know, since 2017, Apple has kept the “standard” price of Pro-versions of the iPhone at $999 and has not increased the cost of its smartphones in the US for several years. However, this year the situation will change.
According to the source, the starting model of the iPhone 15 Pro will cost customers $ 1,049 instead of the usual $ 999. This is due to the fact that the company will have to pass on the upgrade costs to consumers.
In particular, the Pro versions of the iPhone will replace the steel frame with a titanium one, and will also receive a powerful A17 chip, a periscope camera lens, even more memory, and solid-state sound buttons. Plus, in addition to the updated filling, this may also be due to high inflation in many countries of the world.
