The iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max continue to be Apple’s most advanced models, even though the iPhone 16 won’t be released for several months. If you possess one of these phones covered with titanium, you have undoubtedly utilized features like StandBy Mode, which turns your phone into a smart display, and NameDrop, which allows you to share contact information by bringing your phones near together.

To get the most out of your new phone, you need to be aware of a few unique hardware characteristics of the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max, such as five incredible cameras, a new action button, and USB 3.0 charging.

There’s no better moment than the present to discover the features that are exclusive to the iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max if you haven’t had the chance. Three Pro and Pro Max-only features that you’ll want to set up, customize, and utilize are highlighted below. Here’s everything you need to know if you want to get the most out of your new iPhone 15 Pro or 15 Pro Max.

Set up the new action button

One of the most significant physical updates to the iPhone in a long time is the action button, which takes the place of the ring/silent switch that has been a part of the device since the original iPhone model. The action can be programmed to perform various tasks, like activating a shortcut, recording a voice note, and turning on a flashlight, rather than merely switching between ring and switch modes.

Swipe through the different actions you want the action button to execute when clicking under Settings > Action Button. The options available to you are as follows:

  • Silent Mode (default): Switch between silent and ring mode.
  • Focus: Turn on your main Focus mode, like Do Not Disturb.
  • Flashlight: Turn on your rear flashlight.
  • Voice Memo: Record an audio note.
  • Magnifier: Use your camera as a magnifying glass.
  • Shortcut: Trigger a shortcut you’ve downloaded or created.
  • Accessibility: Use an accessibility feature of your choosing.
  • No action

There are more alternatives if an action has arrows underneath it. Just swipe and hold down on the action in your preferences to link the button to a specific action. Once you’re done, close the settings window.

Take advantage of the iPhone 15 Pro’s USB-C 3.0 speeds

The iPhone 15 and 15 Plus feature a USB-C port, but they can only transfer data at 480 megabits per second, which is the same USB 2.0 speed as previous iPhone models with a Lightning port. On the other hand, the USB-C connectors on the iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max offer USB 3.0 rates, which are 10 gigabits per second, which is 20 times faster.

For you, what does all of this mean? A USB-C cable that supports 3.0 speeds is first needed. You’ll need to purchase an additional USB-C cable (like this one on Amazon) because the one that comes with your iPhone only supports 2.0 speeds.

You can swiftly transfer data between your iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max now that you have the right cable. It should be quicker if you’re moving data from iTunes to your iPhone and vice versa. It is effective for moving almost any kind of file from your iPhone, particularly to a flash drive, which will speed up the process.

Apple also has a page highlighting that the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max can support recording ProRes video (high-quality lossy video compression format) directly to an external storage device, at up to 4K at 60 frames per second. It’s a niche feature, but if you’re a cinematographer or a video editor, shooting in ProRes gives you better detail and color depth that you can color grade later on without losing quality. Having it directly recorded to an external storage device saves space and time, allowing you to connect the SD directly to your computer without having to transfer it from your iPhone first.

Change the default camera lens when you open your camera

The 24mm lens, or 1x zoom, is the standard main camera of the iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max. It’s your default lens, however, you can switch to a different default lens for the primary camera if you frequently find yourself zooming in slightly when taking pictures.

In Settings > Camera > Main Camera, choose between the three main lenses:

  • 24mm – 1x (default)
  • 28mm – 1.2x
  • 35mm – 1.5x

Hardware Features 15 Pro 1

The next time you open your main camera, it will begin at the new focal length you select, whether it is 1.2x or 1.5x. To manually switch between lenses, hit the main camera zoom control and select 24mm, 28mm, or 35mm. You can also press and hold the control while dragging the slider for more accurate control.
