iPhone 16’s new Capture button will purportedly be able to detect multiple levels of pressure

This iPhone 16 Pro concept is by Yanko Design.

The iPhone 16 lineup’s new Capture Button will be able to detect multiple levels of pressure to emulate a two-step shutter button from dedicated digital cameras, according to a Weibo leaker (per MacRumors).

Weibo user “Instant Digital” says the Capture Button’s main function will be to trigger image or video capture, but a light press will enable the user to adjust focus. It will allegedly be located on the right side of the smartphone.

As for the iPhone 16, here are other rumors about the 2024 smartphone line-up:

° The iPhone 16 will sport a Capture Button on the right side of the phone that’s mechanical rather than capacitive and will respond to pressure and touch.

° The iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max will be available with double the maximum storage capacity as the iPhone 15 Pro models.That is, there will be a 2TB maximum storage options.

° iPhone 16 Pro models configured with 1TB of storage could feature slower read/write speeds to reduce costs,

° Qualcomm’s latest cellular modem may be limited to the iPhone 16 Pro models.

° The ‌‌iPhone 16 Pro‌‌ and ‌‌iPhone 16 Pro‌‌ Max will feature an increase in display size compared to the ‌iPhone 15 Pro‌ and ‌‌iPhone 15 Pro‌‌ Max, measuring roughly 6.3 inches and 6.9 inches, respectively. 

° The iPhone 16 Pro may feature an upgraded Ultra Wide camera with a 48-megapixel sensor.

° All iPhone 16 models will feature a significant upgrade in microphone specifications.
