iPhone 16 Models to Feature iPhone 15 Pro’s Cutting-Edge Technology

The Action button is expected to be present on the entire iPhone 16 lineup, with a new technical upgrade.

The Action button, initially seen on the Apple Watch Ultra and later on the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max, can be customized to perform various tasks, such as turning on the flashlight. According to a report by MacRumors, the button is set to receive an upgrade and may become a standard feature on all iPhone 16 models.

By introducing this upgrade, Apple aims to phase out the traditional mute switch, leading to cost savings in components and assembly. Additionally, the upgraded button is expected to offer improved reliability, thus providing various benefits to users.

The plan is to change the button from mechanical to a capacitive-type button, which will allow for additional functionality. This type of button is touch-sensitive and more resistant to dirt and moisture, offering increased durability and performance. Moreover, it could potentially replace other physical buttons, such as volume controls, thereby simplifying the overall design.
