If we listen to the rumors, we are pretty sure that the iPhone 15 Pro will arrive with solid-state power and volume buttons (i.e. non-physical), and now information is coming out on how these touch panels might work when the phone is turned off.

In a new post on the MacRumors portal, an anonymous leaker claimed that a new microprocessor will help for the solid state buttons of the iPhone 15 Pro to materialize, making them able to detect keystrokes even when the phone is turned off.

The microprocessor in question is rumored to replace the “super low power” mode currently used in the iPhone 14 Pro, which allows applications like “Find My” and “Apple Pay” work almost without energy consumption.

This is important news for Apple fans who are skeptical of the functionality of the iPhone 15 Pro’s potential solid-state buttons. these new panels will be able to detect pressure, retention and a “version of Apple’s 3D Touch” when the phone is turned off.

The presence of a new microprocessor should also mean that these buttons will not depend on the operating system to workso you can always perform actions such as a factory “reset” in case we have problems with the mobile.

According to the leaker, supposedly the same who hinted that iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus will feature Dynamic Islandthe new microprocessor is currently being tested with and without haptic vibration motor feedback, and will handle the ‘Find My’ function, as well as Bluetooth and Apple Pay payments.

The source also claims that this small chipset will allow you to increase or decrease the volume of your iPhone 15 Pro faster depending on the pressure which applies to each button.

It will also allow you to control the volume by sliding your finger up or down on the buttons. According to reports, Apple hasn’t decided on its preferred method yet. by its release.

Finally, this anonymous leaker points out that he is Apple cannot disclose the existence of this new microprocessor until the introduction of the iPhone 15 Pro officially in September, although the company may just “drop it in the tech specs.”

As for the rest of the features that could come to the iPhone 15 Pro (and the rumored iPhone 15 Ultra), a the chip update is taken for granted (the A17 Bionic) exclusively for the most expensive iPhones, with recent leaks hinting that this processor could make the iPhone 15 Pro as fast as a MacBook M1. The iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus, on the other hand, are expected to inherit last year’s A16 Bionic.
