Have you heard about the Action Button? It’s a new feature on the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max designed to automate essential actions. It allows you to take a screenshot, activate the camera, and more—all depending on how you customize it. Now, every iPhone owner, even those with older models, can add it to their arsenal. Here’s how to link quick commands on your iPhone to the volume buttons. 

How to “Rebind” Volume Buttons into an Action Button

It’s straightforward and easy. Let’s get started:

  • Open the “Shortcuts” app. If you don’t have it on your iPhone, download it from the App Store and install it.
  • Add a new command called Rebind. Follow this link, and the command will automatically install on your smartphone.
  • Go to the list of quick commands, find Rebind, and grant all necessary permissions required by the system.
  • Choose the volume button to which you want to assign a specific action.
  • Specify the section and action that will be triggered by pressing this button. We’ll explain in detail below which capabilities can be automated this way.
  • Once the action is selected and approved, close the menu and start using the new capabilities.
  • Optionally, configure another action for the second volume control button.
  • Simply launch the command (press Start), and the script will begin loading. When the progress ring fills up, the binding will complete, and you can start using the command.

Now you know how to quickly and correctly set up commands on your iPhone. Next, we’ll explore which specific functionalities can be linked to the volume buttons.

Nuance: Volume buttons continue to work as effectively as before. Adjusting sound volume requires a simple short press. Additional functions are activated with a long press or multiple presses.

Actions Simplified with Rebind

  • Once you’ve learned how to enable commands on the iPhone, you can expedite various processes. Here are the specifics:
  • Capture a photo with one click: Capture even more important and valuable moments instantly.
  • Turn on the flashlight with a single press: Quickly find what you need, light your way on stairs or in dark alleys.
  • Instantly switch to Airplane Mode to disconnect: Silence calls during performances or meetings.
  • Connect to Wi-Fi instantly: Save time visibly.
  • Easily capture live broadcast moments: All the necessary information will be saved.
  • Automate screen settings: Adjust brightness, switch between dark and light modes, and more.

Removing Quick Commands on iPhone

Disabling the script is as easy as understanding how to create a command on iPhone. Simply go to “Shortcuts” and stop the Rebind action.

Launching Any App from iPhone Lock Screen

iOS 17 also introduces a new widget for the Shortcuts app. You can use it to access quick commands directly from the lock screen. Here’s how:

  • Navigate to “Shortcuts,” select the ‘+’ icon, and tap “Add Action.”
  • Tap on “Open App” > “App” and find the desired software.
  • Optionally rename it (“Rename”) and customize the icon (“Choose Icon”).
  • Enter editing mode from the lock screen: Tap “Customize,” choose the widget block beneath the clock, and select the desired quick command from the list. Confirm your selection (“Done”).

This is how it will look once set up. We’ve installed a translation app.

You can fit up to 4 widgets on the screen, but that’s not the limit. You can actually add more. Here’s how to create a set of commands displayed on the locked screen of your iPhone:

  • In “Shortcuts,” tap ‘+’, add an action, and type “Menu” in the search bar. From the list, choose “Select from Menu.”
  • Next, select “Add New Item” from the dropdown if there are more than two.
  • Rename each action according to the apps they will launch.
  • In the search bar at the bottom, type “App” and select “Open App.” Then tap on “App” (semi-transparent font) and choose the software to launch.
  • Arrange the created block to the corresponding part of the command. Repeat this for each app you plan to add.
  • Once all commands are added, rename the command as desired and set the icon (as explained earlier). Confirm with “Done.”
  • Go to the lock screen, enter editing mode, tap the widget block, and add the “Shortcuts” icon.
  • When the icon appears, tap it and select the desired command from the list.
  • Save changes to the lock screen.
  • Tap the widget and select the software needed from the dropdown list.

Once you’ve completed these steps, accessing the required application will only take two steps.
