Apple vendor Cirrus Logic may have accidentally leaked big news about iPhone 15 Pro and Ultra models
Of course, this may not be a case of “we caught you in the act” discussing your company’s contribution to Apple’s new solid-state buttons for the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Ultra, but it certainly looks like it might fit. And if that’s not enough, Cirrus Logic CEO John Forsyth said on an earnings call this month that the new component will hit the market in the “second half of next year”. . This delay would include the typical September release for the premium iPhone 15 Pro and Ultra 2023 models.

This theory is supported by two analysts from the British banking company Barclays, Blayne Curtis and Tom O’Malley. The pair said the new component that Cirrus Logic talked about in the shareholder letter will most likely be part of the additional Taptic Engines needed to drive the haptics of the solid-state buttons on the iPhone 15 Pro and Ultra models next year.
Last month, TF International analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that the more expensive models of the iPhone 15 Pro (and Ultra) will sport solid-state power and volume buttons, which will require two additional Taptic Engines for these devices. And yes, this would also require Cirrus Logic’s new HPMS component to drive the additional Taptic motors.
Top analyst Kuo also expects solid-state power and volume buttons to be installed on the most expensive iPhones next year
In his tweet, Kuo said, “My latest investigation indicates that the volume button and power button of two new high-end iPhone 15/2H23 models may adopt a solid-state button design (similar to the home button design of iPhone 7/8/SE2 & 3) to replace the physical/mechanical button design.
So it would certainly seem like we should expect next year’s most expensive iPhone 15 Pro models to be without physical buttons that can wear out over time. They can be more touch sensitive, making it easier to adjust volume on handsets. It would also be used as another way to differentiate the non-Pro iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus models from the more expensive iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Ultra.
