Just yesterday we were talking to you about the future design of the iPhone 16 and how this design could receive references from the iPhone X, a device that is seven years old. However, the design will not be everything for this iPhone 16 but there will be new features that will define the differences with respect to the iPhone 15. One of those differences will be the capture button, an additional button located in the sidebar with haptic technology and that the latest leaks suggest that It will work like a button on a camera: If we press halfway it will allow it to focus, and if we press it all the way it will take the photo.

First focus, then capture: this will be the capture button on the iPhone 16

He new capture button of the iPhone 16 is being confirmed in leaps and bounds with the passage of time. There are many analyzes and reports that place this new capture button on the right side edge of the new iPhone 16. This location has some extra implication and that is that on iPhones with mmWave technology (some selected countries including the United States) will have to move this antenna on the left side since they currently occupy the right side. In the rest of the iPhone, as in the case of Spain, there will be no change because they do not have this antenna and the capture button will also be located on the right side.

The technology that this capture button will have seems to be that it will be haptic and will allow different actions to be carried out depending on the treatment we give it. That is, if we slide to one side or the other we can zoom, for example. A new report published on the social network Weiboo by the user Instant Digital ensures that The capture button will work like the button we have on cameras. That is, with a complete route with two stops. If we press lightly halfway, we will focus, if we press all the way to complete the journey We will take the photograph.
