Apple is committed to developing an iPhone without physical buttons. A well-known industry expert has said unequivocally that the revolutionary upgrade may initially appear on the iPhone 15 Pro that will be released this year, before Apple incorporates it into the iPad tablets as well.
Cirrus Logic is the primary winner for canceling physical buttons and the change to adopt solid-state buttons on the 2H23 high-end iPhone 15 models. https://t.co/CNfZOYwRXn

It was previously revealed the year before that the Cupertino company intends to swap the physical buttons on iPhones with solid-state versions of the same sort of button. It is reasonable to anticipate that certain components, such as the tactile feedback, will be modified to resemble that of the home button on Apple’s iPhone SE 3. (2022). The power/lock key as well as the volume controls should then be removed and these buttons should take their place on both sides.
Design for the iPhone and iPad that lacks any ports or buttons
Apple has selected a supplier for its solid-state buttons, according to a report by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. According to the information provided by the source, this design will only be implemented in the most premium or professional versions of the iPhone 15. However, he also suggests that the adoption of this technology in future iterations of the iPhone and iPad might be contingent on how well it is received by consumers.
There have been rumors that Apple will introduce a gadget that does not have a connection port in addition to eliminating the buttons. The reason for this, despite the fact that it may seem silly, is that a legislation mandating USB-C standards was only recently passed. Instead of hurrying to produce a port-less handset, however, Apple is complying to the initiative of the EU by substituting Lightning with USB-C beginning with the iPhone 15.
Titanium might be used for the chassis of either the iPhone 15 Pro Max or the upcoming Ultra edition, which would be another way in which the two models are differentiated from one another. It is also possible that there will be a fourth back camera in the shape of a periscopic sensor. In the meanwhile, it is reported that every model in the lineup will launch with Dynamic Island before Apple implements its concealed Face ID on the iPhone 16.
