The iPhone 15 Pro May Feature Capacitive Touch And Customisable 'Action' Buttons
The upcoming iPhone 15 models are rumoured to be sporting capacitive touch buttons in lieu of mechanical buttons
Capacitive touch buttons are flat buttons that are triggered when your finger comes into contact with them — it utilises the electrical properties of the human body as input. Instead of pressing down a button, you just need to gently touch to activate a button. It works similarly to 3D touch buttons.
