iPhone 15 Pro: New Mute button could open camera, activate flashlight and more

Apple is preparing to launch the iPhone 15 series with exciting changes this year. They are replacing the Lightning connector with a USB-C port and bringing Dynamic Island to all the models. The Mute button is also getting its first update since the first iPhone was released in 2007. Let’s look at what we can expect from the new Action button.

With the latest beta version of iOS 17, codes found by the MacRumors website suggest that the Action button on the iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max will have various functions:

  • Accessibility: Quick access to settings like VoiceOver, Zoom, and Audio Descriptions.
  • Shortcuts: Launch pre-programmed Shortcuts with a single press.
  • Silent Mode: Toggle mute mode on or off like the current button.
  • Camera: Quickly access the camera for photos or videos.
  • Flashlight: Activate the rear camera LED flash to use as a flashlight.
  • Focus: Switch between different Focuses or disable the current one.
  • Magnifier: An accessibility function to enlarge screen text or use the camera for magnification.
  • Translate: A shortcut to the Translator app or start voice translation.
  • Recorder: Start a voice recording with the action button.
