If you follow rumors about upcoming iPhones – and believe me, I do – then you'll likely have read about the addition of a new 'Capture Button' on the iPhone 16. I first covered the possibility – which Apple reportedly call Project Nova – back in September 2023 (when my iPhone 15 still had that new-phone smell).
