Apple reinvents iPhone 15 Pro & Pro Max with Action Button & titanium enclosure

Apple states that the new iPhone 15 models will be the lightest Pros yet.


As expected, the iPhone 15 was the major announcement at today’s Apple Event. In addition to the standard model of the phone, Apple also revealed the Pro and Pro Max models of the iPhone 15. Equipped with a titanium enclosure and a customizable Action Button, we finally have the details for the next high-end iPhones.

The iPhone 15’s new Action Button replaces the mute slider on the device’s left side. It can be programmed to perform a plethora of functions, like calling a Lyft, toggling the flashlight, or opening an app. Of course, you could just opt to use it for muting and unmuting your device. Apple also spent a lot of time spotlighting the device’s titanium enclosure, which should give it a durable design, while making it the lightest iPhone Pro model to date.
