[New machine] iPhone 15 Pro broke the news: pressure-sensitive vibration instead of physical buttons

On the iPhone 7 series, Apple designed the Home button as a non-pressable design. After recognizing that the finger is pressed hard, it will simulate the feeling of mechanical pressing through vibration feedback. According to the news, the iPhone 15 Pro will also use the same design for the volume button and power button. The Taptic Engine vibration motor is added to the top of the fuselage to achieve more accurate vibration feedback.

From the design point of view, there are good and bad, and there are advantages. For example, the problem of damage to the mechanical mechanism can be reduced to a certain extent, but the disadvantages seem to be more obvious. If such a design is used, the buttons of the mobile phone case will inevitably be cancelled. The vibration simulation still can’t achieve the crisp feedback of the actual pressing, but considering Apple’s future development in the direction of no interface, there is also a certain possibility of this change.

In fact, in order to eliminate the opening of the iPhone, Apple made changes in the product very early. The iPhone 7 added IP67 dust and water resistance, and the internal air tightness increased. In order for the barometer to work normally, the headphone jack was canceled and an air pressure exhaust was added. gas device.

The iPhone 12 began to introduce MagSafe, changing the charging method and expanding the ecology of the accessories field. Unfortunately, the charging speed is still a turtle speed. The data interface has been cancelled on the Apple Watch, and the wireless transmission protocol has been used to flash the machine after the sale. The iPhone 14 Pro has further narrowed the receiver, so no interface is bound to be a general trend. Of course, the benefits are better air tightness and stronger dust resistance. Water resistance, how long do you think the interface of the iPhone will be realized?
