Apple's iPhone 16 Series Rumored to Include a Dedicated Video Capture Button: Insider Report
The iPhone 16 series is expected to feature a dedicated button for taking videos, according to Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman. This button, rumored to be called the “Capture Button,” would be exclusive to the Pro lineup of the iPhone 16 series. Gurman also mentioned that the lower-end iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus models would retain the new Action Button that was introduced in the iPhone 15 Pro models.
In terms of design, Gurman suggests that the iPhone 15’s design will be retained for the next lineup. However, the Pro models of the iPhone 16 series, namely the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max, will have larger displays than their predecessors. The iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max currently sport 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch Super Retina XDR OLED displays, respectively. Display industry analyst Ross Young predicts that the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max will have 6.3-inch and 6.9-inch displays, respectively.
The iPhone 16 series is expected to launch in late 2024, but leaks about the lineup are already emerging. It is rumored that the Pro models will be powered by an A18 Pro Bionic chip based on a 3nm process, while the regular iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus will have a toned-down version of the A17 Pro chip. The Snapdragon X70 modem is also expected to be retained in the phones. Additionally, the Pro models may come with Wi-Fi 7 connectivity and could feature a new ultra-wide lens on the rear.
In other news, Apple recently unveiled its first mixed reality headset, the Apple Vision Pro, at its developer conference. This was accompanied by announcements of new Mac models and upcoming software updates. More details about these announcements can be found on the Gadgets 360 podcast called Orbital, available on various platforms.
