Implicitly Confirmed: iPhone 15 Pro Will Not Have A Static Button

An Important Apple Supplier Has Indirectly Confirmed That The iPhone 15 Pro And iPhone 15 Pro Max Do Not Have A Non-Moving Button.

Shareholders that the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max will not have a static button, contrary to initial rumors.

Cirrus Logic has a unit called HPMS that contains the haptic driver for the iPhone’s haptic engine. The haptic motor is the part that enables haptic feedback.

Ming-Chi Kuo, a well-known analyst, said that Apple would include two additional haptic motors in the new generation of iPhones and provide haptic feedback for non-moving buttons. Cirrus Logic has previously indirectly said that it would supply the parts needed for these buttons.

In the latest Cirrus Logic letter sent to shareholders, we read: “The new product that we have mentioned in previous letters and which is supposed to be introduced this fall, will not come to the market according to the previous schedule.

“As we currently have limited visibility into our customer’s plans for this product, we are removing the revenue associated with this component from our internal model.”

Cirrus Logic says it will continue to work with its “strategic customer” and likely introduce new HPMS components into smartphones next year.

According to MacRumors, Apple is Cirrus Logic’s largest customer, accounting for 79 percent of the company’s revenue last year. Analysts at Barclays say Cirrus Logic’s new letter likely rules out using a static button on the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max.

Last month, Ming-Chi Kuo said that Apple has changed its plans and no longer plans to add a static button to the iPhone. Cuo attributed this to “unresolved technical issues.” Despite not changing the usual buttons, the Mute slider may be replaced with a push button called the Action Button this year.
