If you’ve been following Apple rumors since last year, you may recall that the iPhone 15 Pro has been widely rumored to include touch-sensitive solid-state buttons. It appears Apple will not replace the iPhone’s physical keys for at least a year. Apple supplier Cirrus Logic stated in a shareholder letter discovered by MacRumors that “a new product that we mentioned in previous shareholder letters as being scheduled for release this autumn is no longer expected to be released as planned.”

Cirrus is most well-known for manufacturing a number of components for the iPhone’s Taptic Engine. Apple is the company’s greatest client, accounting for 79 percent of its 2022 revenue. Cirrus informed investors and analysts in November that it was developing a new high-performance mixed-signal (HPMS) component (the same category as the Tapic Engine) and that it would be included in smartphones by 2023. This week, Cirrus stated that it had “limited visibility” regarding the viability of the product.

Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo stated in the autumn that the company planned to replace the physical volume and power buttons on its next flagship phone with touch-sensitive buttons, sparking rumors that the iPhone 15 Pro would feature a set of solid-state buttons. Last month, Kuo revised his forecast, citing Apple’s decision to alter plans due to “unresolved technical issues before mass production.” If nothing else, this event serves as a reminder to be skeptical of smartphone rumors, especially those that propagate months or even years before a product’s release.
