Solid-State Buttons has been with us for a while, as the generation proceeding physical home buttons. Apple’s agenda is still to avoid mechanical failures, saving development burden and failing to provide a secure and long –lasting pleasant user experience. We will see it happen most probably by sometime next year.
After overcoming many problems in this respect, Apple will undoubtedly like very much to avoid seeing the story repeating itself, therefore, in future Apple Watches, we will see the company moving into the using of a touch-sensitive, solid-state button. In addition to the avoiding of mechanical problems as said, the removal of a physical button is to enable the use of a larger battery, better water-proofing, anti-shock hermetic screen, etc.
Apple Watch Series 4 will bear a new design with a larger display, could come with blood-pressure sensors and monitoring apps and additional sensors that will enable larger amounts of data collection on the user.
