Rendering of the iPhone 15 on the Internet

Ming-Chi Kuo posted on the Internet: “My latest investigation shows that the volume keys and power keys of two new high-end iPhone 15 models may use solid-state key design (similar to the iPhone 7/8/SE2&3 Home key design) instead of physical /Mechanical button design. There will be Taptic Engines inside the phone to provide force feedback on the left and right sides, making the user feel like they are pressing a physical button. As a result of this design change, the number of Taptic Engines used in each iPhone will go from the current 1 to 3. This design may also appear on Android flagships in the future. Therefore, the existing Taptic Engine suppliers Luxshare Precision (first supplier) and AAC Technologies (second supplier) will be important beneficiaries.
