Apple is rumored to bring a new Capture button on its iPhone 16 Pro and 16 Pro Max which we saw in leaked renders earlier this month. Now, The Information is reporting that Apple is testing the Capture button across the entire iPhone 16 range including the baseline iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus and we also get some more details on its additional functions.
The Capture button will be a physical button located on the lower right-hand side of the new iPhone 16 devices and will allow for instant image capture and video recording. Past rumors suggest it will sit flush with the phone’s frame and feature a force touch sensor for touch and pressure controls.
The new details are that it will offer half-press to focus and full-press to capture an image or start a video recording session. In addition, Apple is also rumored to bring swipe gestures allowing for zoom controls directly from the Capture button. These new zoom controls will come in handy on the smaller iPhone 16 Pro which is rumored to receive the 5x tetraprism lens.
