The upcoming iPhone 16 is about to get a snazzy new addition – the Capture Button. And guess what? It’s not just a fancy name; this little gem is all set to revolutionize how you record videos.
Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman has spilled the beans in his latest newsletter. The iPhone 16 is gearing up to include a “new dedicated button for taking video.” That’s right, the Capture Button is more than just a shiny new toy; it’s your fast track to capturing life’s moments in motion.
Let’s paint the picture of where you’ll find this magic button. Picture your iPhone 16, and on the bottom right side, there it is – the Capture Button, sitting pretty where the mmWave antenna used to be on U.S. models. And for those without mmWave, no sweat – the Capture Button fits right in.
This isn’t your old-school mechanical button. Oh no, Apple’s going all out with a capacitive button, complete with haptic feedback and a force sensor. Think about it – a light press for a photo, a harder press for a video, maybe? The possibilities are endless, and so is the speculation.
But why stop at regular videos? The iPhone 16 is expected to step into the world of spatial videos. Imagine recording a video that you can later relive in 3D with the Vision Pro headset. Talk about being a director of your own life’s movie!
And it’s not just for the Pro models. The iPhone 16 lineup is bringing this feature to everyone, making spatial video recording a standard affair. So, whether you’re capturing your kid’s first steps or that epic concert, the iPhone 16’s Capture Button is set to be your go-to.
So, what are you waiting for? Start planning those video shoots, because the iPhone 16 and its Capture Button are about to change the game. Keep your eyes peeled for more juicy details, and get ready to step into a more immersive video recording experience!
