The front and back designs will remain similar, with the introduction of a new "Capture Button" and the expansion of the Action Button across all models.


The above-mentioned vertical camera layout similar to the iPhone X is designed to capture Spatial Video for the Vision Pro headset.

A new "Capture Button" will be added to enhance photography and videography, detecting multiple levels of pressure for focusing and capturing images.
