The latest details reveal that the iPhone 16 Capture button will offer a half-press feature for focusing and a full-press function for capturing images or initiating video recording.

Additionally, there are rumors that Apple will introduce swipe gestures, allowing users to control zoom directly from the Capture button. These zoom controls will be particularly useful on the smaller iPhone 16 Pro, which is rumored to feature a 5x tetraprism lens.
