The Birth of the Action Button
Replacing the traditional ringer switch on the left side of the iPhone Pro, the Action Button is a new customizable button. It offers various shortcuts, accessibility features, camera access, flashlight control, and more. Though it defaults as a ringer switch, its potential for additional functionality is notable.
Pro Cameras and Enhanced Video Capabilities
Apple boasts that the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max feature their most advanced camera systems to date, equating to seven distinct lenses. This includes a 48-megapixel camera that excels in low-light conditions, reduces lens flare, and leverages Apple’s AI for full-res HEIF photos. Apple iPhone 15 Pro features an 3x Telephoto camera, and iPhone 15 Pro Max provides 5x at 120 mm. The phones also support shooting 4K60 ProRes video and direct external drive recording via USB-C.
