Apple Supplier Appears to Confirm No Solid State Buttons for iPhone 15

Posted May 5, 2023 at 9:54pm by iClarified
An Apple Supplier appears to have confirmed that the company will not be introducing solid state buttons for the upcoming iPhone 15.

When solid state buttons were first rumored, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted that Cirrus Logic would be the primary winner from the cancellation of physical buttons. This is because the company was expected to be the exclusive supplier of Taptic Engine Controller ICs for solid-state buttons.

Last month, multiple sources suddenly predicted that Apple had abandoned plans for the new buttons and now in their 4Q23 shareholder letter, Cirrus Logic has seemingly confirmed the news themselves.

A new product that we mentioned in previous shareholder letters as being scheduled for introduction this fall is no longer expected to come to market as planned. As we have limited visibility into our customer's future plans for this product at this time, we are removing the revenue associated with this component from our internal model. While this is undeniably a setback, we are proud of our execution in this program. Our customer relationship remains very strong as we continue to collaborate on a range of technologies and products in the HPMS space.

Given the company's statement, it remains unclear if Apple has any plans to bring solid state buttons to the iPhone in any future generation. For the latest updates, please download the iClarified app or follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and RSS.
