With WWDC just around the corner, iPhone 15 rumours are heating up.
Unlike previous iPhones, the iPhone 15 Pro is expected to ditch its physical buttons and replace them with solid-state haptic engines that mimic the feel of a button press.
iOS 15 also introduces Record App Activity, which allows you to view which apps have used your sensors over a seven day period.

The Apple TV app on the iPhone has been updated to let you use Siri to control it. It’s a small change, but it means you can control your TV from your phone without the need to use a separate remote or switch apps.
A new ‘Action Button’ that works like the mute switch on the Apple Watch Ultra is also expected to make its way to the iPhone 15. Similar to the new feature on the iPad Pro, you can set this button to do something different than the default action, which in this case is to silence your phone.
Other rumors surrounding the iPhone 15 are less ground-breaking. For instance, a dummy unit seen by Unbox Therapy showed that the Pro models will get a titanium frame that is more premium than the aluminum of previous iPhones. The dummy also shows a smaller camera bump and USB-C, which is a no-brainer since Apple is moving away from Lightning to address European laws that aim to reduce electronic waste. In terms of design, rumors suggest that the iPhone 15 will retain a pill-shaped volume button and a distinct indent that will split it into functional halves for up and down volume controls. This will replace the old-school buttons that were more tactile and gave satisfying clicks when you pressed them.
The new iPhone 15 will likely feature a host of useful voice-based features that will allow users to control their devices with only a few simple commands. In addition to allowing users to answer calls with their voice, the iPhone 15 will also include the ability to create and use unique personal voices that can be used on different Apple products such as a Mac or iPod. Apple says the feature, called Personal Voice AI, will be able to recognize voices in any language and accents and requires only 15 minutes of training. While many are worried that a repository of custom voices could be misused, Cupertino promises that personal voice data will never be shared with third parties.
Despite what you might think from early CAD leaks, it appears that the long-rumored unified volume rocker may not be happening. According to MacRumors, the iPhone 15 Pro will get a single pill-shaped button that can be customized for multiuse like the Apple Watch Ultra’s Action Button. The most likely function would be to replace the mute button, but it could also launch the camera app, toggle light/dark mode, activate Low Power Mode, take a screenshot or screen recording, or trigger a Shortcut.
Another rumor suggests that the iPhone 15 will retain the physical mute switch but will use solid-state haptic buttons instead of the clicky metal one that we’ve grown to love. These will be powered by dedicated haptic engines that specifically mimic the feel of a button press. This should help mitigate any issues that might be caused by a lack of satisfying tactile feedback.
Last spring’s iOS 14 update was a massive improvement for Apple’s iPhone, with huge privacy improvements like app tracking transparency and Privacy Nutrition Labels. This year’s iOS 15 and macOS Monterey updates take things further, with powerful new features like Apple Watch unlocking and iCloud Private Relay, which works a bit like a virtual private network by routing your web traffic through separate relays.
One of the best new iPhone privacy features is Intelligent Tracking Prevention, a tool that stops marketers from using your IP address to track you online. The feature will also stop email marketers from being able to see when your emails are opened, and it prevents browser autofill data from being saved after you close a tab.
Other privacy upgrades include an expanded App Privacy Report, which will show you how frequently apps have used your location, camera, photos, contacts, and microphone over the past week. The App Privacy Report can be accessed by going to Settings > Privacy & Security > App Privacy, where you can view a snapshot of your apps’ activity and access history. A new Lockdown Mode will protect your iPhone against malware, phishing attacks, and advanced cyberattacks. The feature is aimed at people who could be targeted by malware or spyware, including politicians, military personnel, investors, dissidents, lawyers, activists, and celebrities.
