The new iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max feature a customizable action button that replaces the traditional mute switch on previous iPhones. By default, the button is configured to toggle between Ring and Silent modes, but can also be assigned a different action for quick access to the camera, flashlight, voice notes, etc.
One of the options for the “Action” button will be the “Translator” application, which allows you to quickly start translating between two languages without opening it. application. However, the fine print on Apple's website states that the Translate option won't be available for the Action button until later this year, suggesting it will be included in a future iOS 17 update.
Quick overview of other options that will be available for the Action button immediately:
- Voice Memos
Press and hold Action button to initiate the assigned action.
iPhone 15 models can be pre-ordered beginning Friday, September 15 at 5 a.m. PT and launch on Friday, September 22.
