iPhone 15 Pro Action Button feature

According to a 9To5Mac report, You can now translate languages in the simplest way with the Action button on the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, thanks to iOS 17.2. Just add the Translate app to the action button through iPhone Settings, and you'll be able to access it with a single tap. Once the translate function is added to the action button, the translated text will be shown on the iPhone's Dynamic Island. This will enable users to directly translate without opening the Translation app.
