I’m excited to show you how you can transform the volume buttons on your iPhone into action buttons right now. This is a neat trick that works on any iPhone, giving you the ability to reprogram these buttons to perform up to nine different functions, similar to the upcoming iPhone 15’s action button.
The iPhone 15’s action button allows you to reprogram the button to do up to nine different functions. But what if I told you that you can achieve this functionality on your current iPhone? In this article, I’ll guide you through the process, step by step.

Step 2: Run the Shortcut
After downloading the shortcut, go ahead and run it on your iPhone. You’ll be presented with various options.
Step 3: Customize Your Actions
- Select “Reprogram” or “Rebind” to start customizing your buttons.
