Forbes Discloses the iPhone 15’s Spied Design

Forbes has been keeping readers informed about the most recent design and feature news while closely monitoring the iPhone 15 leaks. This has always been the case with iPhone releases in the past; months before to the new iPhone’s debut, Forbes had previously revealed its features to the public. Apple will reportedly replace the physical volume and power buttons on its high-end iPhone 15 models with solid-state (immovable) buttons that provide haptic feedback. This is according to Forbe’s analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. We are also aware of its codename.

Similar information was leaked by the mysterious ShrimpApplePro, who tweeted that Apple is developing a “iPhone without a physical button.” Bogo is the project’s codename. Kuo spoke forward to defend his knowledge, saying;

According to my most recent poll, the physical/mechanical volume and power buttons of two high-end iPhone 15/2H23 new iPhone models may be replaced with solid-state button designs (like the home button design of the iPhone 7/8/SE2 & 3),

According to Kuo, Apple will install haptic motors known as Taptic Engines, which give consumers the impression that they are tapping real buttons, on the inside left and right sides of the upcoming iPhones. It’s interesting to note that Kuo says he anticipates premium Android devices to swiftly embrace this style.

Will the iPhone 15 support USB-C?

In support of USB-inclusion C’s in the iPhone 15 line, Mark Gurman has provided details on how Apple would introduce the move to users.

Although Apple seems displeased that the government is interfering with its product plan, switching from Lightning to USB-C is beneficial for customers, according to a report.

Gurman claims that USB-C ports would actually be added to iPhone 15 models, meaning that they will be available for the entire range rather than just the Pro/Ultra, as other leaks allege, even though Apple did not expressly state that it will add a USB-C connection to new iPhones.

“You can guarantee that the move won’t be characterised as a government action when Apple releases the iPhone 15.” It will be promoted as a means to make charging for Macs, iPads, and iPhones simpler.

Surprisingly, Display expert Ross Young disclosed the following in a fresh supertweet to his premium followers:

“Apple has not yet decided on the SE4’s display. It is thought to be looking at 5.7′′-6.1′′ LCDs from 2 manufacturers as well as 6.1′′ OLEDs from 2 sources.

It is quite uncommon for Apple, which is renowned for working many generations in advance, to still be debating something as fundamental as the size of its next iPhone SE. Still, I think I understand the reason. The business had been persuaded by booming sales of the enormous 6.7-inch iPhone Pro Max models and weak sales of the 5.4-inch iPhone Mini line (which led to its discontinuation). However, the iPhone 14’s poor sales have prompted them to reduce the number of iPhone 14s being produced.

This was not intended to occur. Many people, including me, predicted the iPhone 14 Plus would be the most popular iPhone 14 model due to its combination of a big display area and a long-lasting battery at a (relatively) reasonable price. Instead, Apple is divided between 6.1-inch OLED displays and smaller, more affordable LCD choices. The latter might further erode sales of the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus at the low end after buyers choose Pro versions at the high end, where the price disparities diminish when stretched over a 2-3 year carrier contract.

Apple needs to think about this, so. Furthermore, the business still has time on its hands to assess longer-term sales of all iPhones before making a choice because Young stated in a follow-up supersweet that the iPhone SE4 won’t be released until 2024.

Because Apple probably erred in its product categorization approach for the first time in years, the choice has major ramifications. The placement of other product lines, including as the entry-level M1 MacBook Air vs its M2 successor and entry-level iPads and iPad Pros, has also been questioned as a result of this approach.

In fact, I wouldn’t be shocked if the business changed its mind about how it will position M1 models generally and decided to either replace the models totally or continue selling them at a discount like the M1 MacBook Air, risking more cannibalization. It’s a problem that Apple has to solve across many product lines because it’s getting worse.

Although the idea seems odd, it makes logic. Apple has a lot of expertise with haptic motors and has been using them in its MacBook touchpads since 2015 without incident. Additionally, the corporation reduced the size of its haptic motors to debut “3D Touch” on the iPhone 6S, but failed to make the feature’s functioning obvious.

Its comeback feels appropriate because this was a rare instance of Apple producing excellent hardware but failing to find a software application. Moving elements also have a bigger probability of failing, therefore the change ought to boost dependability and cut down on maintenance expenses. It could also make things more water resistant. Given that there will be motors on both sides of the phones, the technology may potentially be expanded to provide DualSense-like feedback in games.
