Apple iPhone 15 series launch is expected in the second half of the year. It is expected to bring a bunch of upgrades over the iPhone 14 series. However, most of the upgrades and changes are expected to be exclusively available with the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max. One of the main highlights is the addition of the action button while ditching the Mute Toggle Switch of the iPhone. This is a big design makeover as Apple has always kept Ring/Silent switch since the first launch of the iPhone back in 2007.

However, what comes as a surprise is that this new action button will let you enjoy some customisable actions with the upcoming iPhone 15 Pro models. A member of a MacRumors forum has allegedly revealed all the details of the customisable action button. The forum suggests that it will be similar to Apple Watch Ultra, which allows users to change their preferences. This is possible due to the presence of the micro-processor.

Here's what you can expect from the iPhone 15 Pro's Action button.

Apart from this, the upcoming iPhone15 Pro models are also expected to bring a solid-state single-volume button.
