Unlocking the full potential of the iPhone 15 Pro's action button

Cupertino, October 3, 2023

I'm pleased with the quick menu I've created. If I perform a long press on the action button, I am presented with a text menu that appears as follows (with explanations provided in brackets):

Actions: Camera (go to Camera - photo mode)
Silence (turn ringer on/off)
Flashlight (turn flashlight on/off)
Magnifier (go to Magnifier)
Speech (go to Voice Recorder)
Files... (open a submenu with important documents to view, e.g. driver's license, insurance, passport, Covid card, etc.)

This quick menu is an all-in-one shortcut assigned to the "action button". The action associated with it is "Choose from menu". Each menu item triggers a simple action, except for "Files..." which opens a submenu with the same "Choose from menu" action. Upon selecting a "Files..." menu item, the "Open File" option is displayed, allowing access to various documents stored in folders within the Files app.

I hope you find this information useful.
