The iPhone 15 Pro is shaping up to be a groundbreaking device with a host of innovative features. Among the most exciting additions is the replacement of the mute switch with a versatile Action button, similar to the Apple Watch Ultra. This game-changing multifunction button promises to revolutionize the way users interact with their iPhones. Let’s dive into the details and explore what this button has in store for us!
The revelation about the Action button comes from the diligent efforts of Steve Moser, who discovered intriguing code snippets, as reported on MacRumors. With this dedicated button, users can expect a plethora of customization options for assigning various actions to a simple click. The possibilities seem endless, and we’ll be sure to keep you updated on any further corroborations of these findings.
Based on the initial reports, the iPhone 15 Pro’s Action button will offer a remarkable nine assignment options to choose from. These options include Accessibility, Shortcuts, Silent Mode, Camera, Flashlight, Focus, Magnifier, Translate, and Voice Memos. With such diverse functionality, users will have the power to streamline their iPhone experience like never before.
It appears that Apple is taking another step towards modernizing its devices by relocating the silent mode feature. Similar to iPad and iPod touch, silent mode is expected to find its new home in the Control Center. The reported code snippets indicate that many other Control Center tile functions will also be assignable to the Action button, alongside the volume buttons. As users contemplate which functions to prioritize, this decision might become the ultimate dilemma for those planning to upgrade.
For all iPhone photography enthusiasts out there, the addition of the dedicated Camera app launcher is undoubtedly an exciting prospect. In the past, Apple experimented with a Smart Battery case featuring a designated button for launching the Camera app. Unfortunately, this feature faded away with the transition to the MagSafe version of the battery.

The previous implementation of the dedicated camera button showcased unparalleled convenience. A single click could automatically launch the Camera app, even if the iPhone was locked and the display turned off. The good news is that this seamless convenience might extend to more actions with the upcoming iPhone 15 Pro, set to debut in September.
