Tim Hardwick, for MacRumors:
The iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max will use a new ultra-low energy microprocessor allowing certain features like the new capacitive solid-state buttons to remain functional even when the handset is powered off or the battery has run out…
For a while, I’ve been thinking that the iPhone may be my next phone. I thought they’d refine a few things, and also switch to USB C finally. But the idea of these “new capacitive solid-state buttons” make me think otherwise_._
The user ersan191 posted comment on the post, which I think mirrors my thoughts on the recent “improvements” to the iPhone:
Seems like they are running out of things to overengineer at this point.
