Apple might bring force sensors to its Action button on the iPhone 16 lineup.
Recent evidence suggests that ‘Project Atlas’ would be integrating an Action button with force sensors that have capacitative capabilities and pressure sensitivity for a variety of uses. Apple is believed to be adding a ‘Capture’ button adjacent to the power button. The Capture buttons are labeled ‘Project Nova’ and fall in line with the plan to make the volume and power buttons capacitative, labeled as ‘Project Bongo’
The rumor has been repeated, but not from reliable analysts such as Ming-Chi Kuo or Mark Gurman. The reason for having the Action button for the iPhone 16 lineup is believed to be the same as adding USB-C and Dynamic Island. Developers will have an easier time coming up with new ways to use the feature as it will be on every iPhone 16 model.
