1/5 Are you waiting eagerly to get some exciting insights into the Apple iPhone 15 specs? Though there is still a year's time for the new iPhones' launch (expected in September, 2023), the leaks and rumors about it are creating a buzz amongst the fans. And as per the latest update, it is being said that the volume button and the power button of the two high end iPhone 15 models, iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, may adopt a solid state button design similar to the home button design of iPhone 7, iPhone 8, iPhone SE 2 and iPhone SE 3.

"My latest survey indicates that the volume button and power button of two high-end iPhone 15/2H23 new iPhone 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," he tweeted.

He went on to say that due to this design change, the number of Taptic Engines used in each iPhone will increase from the current one to three. As a result, the existing Taptic Engine suppliers, Luxshare ICT (1st supplier) and AAC Technologies (2nd supplier) will be significant beneficiaries. (AFP)

Apple is planning to launch the iPhone SE 4, a more budget-friendly option for fans who don't want to pay a premium for the iPhone flagship series. This affordable alternative is set to be launched in 2024. Last year, Apple launched the iPhone SE 2022 (3rd Generation) as a less expensive option while featuring a compact and classic look of the iPhone. However, the next iPhone SE 4 is expected to bring a lot of exciting features and upgrades to the table. Here's what you should expect from the iPhone SE 4.

iPhone SE design overhaul!

Several reports and leaks suggest that the iPhone SE 4 is expected to move away from the compact 4.7-inch display that iPhone SE 3 has. It is anticipated that the upcoming iPhone SE 4 will get a new and larger 6.1-inch display, incorporating the design of the 2018 iPhone XR, as suggested by leaker Jon Prosser. Various renders have surfaced online that support this leak, indicating that the iPhone SE 4 will resemble the iPhone XR rather than feature a new design.

Moreover, iPhone SE 4 will feature thinner bezels and a notch-style design.

Arrival of Face-ID on iPhone SE 4

The next iPhone SE is expected to get Face ID instead of Touch ID along with the major design upgrade, Tom's Guide report suggested. This way, Apple will get rid of Touch ID from all of its iPhone models.

iPhone SE 4 Chipset and 5G

Similar to the iPhone 14 Pro models, it is possible that the iPhone SE 4 will come equipped with an A16 Bionic chipset. However, there is still uncertainty over the new chipset on the iPhone SE 4. Just like the iPhone SE 3, iPhone SE 4 will get the 5G connectivity.

Apart from this, whether iPhone SE 4 will get any camera and battery improvements is unknown.
