iPhone 15 Pro’s Action Button to Boast Nine Versatile Functions, Revealing Enhanced Capabilities
The possible functions of the Action Button include:
Accessibility: Toggling accessibility features like VoiceOver or Zoom.
Shortcuts: Running any custom or downloaded shortcuts from the Shortcuts app.
Silent Mode: Muting and unmuting the phone.
Camera: Launching the camera app.
Flashlight: Turning the flashlight on and off.
Focus: Activating or deactivating a specific Focus mode.
Magnifier: Launching the Magnifier app to zoom in on small details using the camera.
Translate: Possibly launching the Translate app and initiating translations.
Voice Memos: Opening the Voice Memos app and possibly starting or stopping a recording.
These details found in the iOS 17 code suggest that the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max will indeed have an Action Button with various functionalities. However, as this is based on a beta version, there’s a possibility that features may change before the official launch in September. Alongside the Pro models, the iPhone 15 lineup is also expected to include a standard model and an iPhone 15 Plus, offering users a range of options to choose from.
