One innovation will be its capacitive surface, capable of Detect the pressure applied by the usersimilar to the MacBook’s Force Touch technology.

Before the launch, the action button was expected to already have press detection capabilities on the iPhone 15 Pro, but this function had to be scrapped shortly before mass production of the phones due to unresolved technical issues.

  • Activate silent mode
  • Turn on the lamp
  • open the camera
  • Activate the shortcut
  • Start audio recording
