Apple will replace the mute switch with an action button on both iPhone 15 Pro models, tipped the tech giant via the new iOS 17 beta.

Apple has leaked some details about the upcoming iPhone 15 series phone- iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone Pro Max in the new iOS 17 beta release. The tech giant will reportedly replace the mute switch with an action button on both iPhone 15 Pro models.

This was first spotted by 9to5Mac. The update has also shown enhanced haptic feedback patterns for turning on and off of the Silent Mode. Previously, there was no haptic feedback when deactivating Silent Mode, iOS only provided a simple haptic notification when users activated Silent Mode because users were using a physical switch to silence their phones at that time.

However, the presence of the solid-state Action button with no physical movement might change things. So, to make users aware of the condition of the Silent mode the phone will need to notify users when turning mute both on and off.

These new patterns should make the phone vibrate more noticeably when the user moves between modes on new phones with an Action Button.

Apart from this, the tech giant had indirectly revealed some of the function of the Action button in the fourth beta of iOS 17 to developers last month. , and some new code snippets in it revealed the functions of the Action button.

Meanwhile, Apple is expected to launch the iPhone series smartphones -iPhone 15, iPhone 15 plus, iPhone 15 Pro, iPhone 15 Pro Max in September.
