Third-party mobile accessory company Spigen has shared some photos of its protective cases for the iPhone 15 ahead of the line’s unveiling this Tuesday. Part of this is the indirect confirmation that some iPhone 15 models will have an Action Button, which will replace the current iPhone Mute switch.

The news is not new since various leaks have been shared before by reliable leakers online. Nonetheless, getting this from an actual company (albeit just a few hours before the event) makes the final confirmation of the details.

Spigen shared a photo of the case on its official X page this week, teasing its followers with the line “Something’s different.” The account then shared boxes of the cases varying in features, including one with support for MagSafe, a clear case, and a plain type.

In the photo in the first post, a new button section can be noticed above the two buttons for the volume. This is different from the holes usually seen in the cases of the earlier iPhone models, indicating that the iPhone 15 will indeed have a button instead of a switch for Mute. This affirmed previous leaks, which started in June and August, wherein a dummy case for the iPhone 15 was shown sporting the same button layout above the Volume buttons.

According to leaks, the button will work like the Action Button in Apple Watch and can be customized and set to specific actions: Accessibility, Shortcuts, Silent Mode, Camera, Flashlight, Focus, Magnifier, Translate, and Voice Memos. A beta of iOS 17 then revealed that it would include a new haptic pattern, allowing users to easily determine when it activates or deactivates the Mute mode.

Leaker @URedditor has also recently claimed that the iPhone SE 4 will boast the same Action Button. However, it is still hard to determine the genuity of the claim since the model’s arrival is also still uncertain. If this is true, nonetheless, the addition of the Action Button in the phone might indicate that Apple is planning to bring some of the Pro features of its phones to its entry-level offerings in the future.
