And for one woman, a new feature on the iPhone 15 will make it even easier to order the seasonal drink.

Allison Johnson, a smartphone reporter at The Verge, shared her shortcut for ordering a Starbucks Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew using the new iPhone 15’s Action button.

‘You guys think I’m kidding about the PSL button, I am serious as a heart attack,’ Johnson wrote on Threads.

She shared a screenshot of the shortcut action for the Starbucks app titled ‘Need Coffee,’ and directions to order a Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew at the store.

Other Threads users seemed impressed by the shortcut, with one user named davidimel writing: ‘This is the greatest thing I’ve seen in weeks. Apple should have put this in their keynote.’

Another user named stareyecomics wrote, ‘Imagine accidentally pressing it in your pocket and you come home to a bunch of pumpkin spice lattes.’

The new iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, which are available on September 22, have a new Action button replacing the Ring/Silent switch on the left side of the phone.

‘Because the button is so accessible, it’s useful for actions you perform often,’ Apple wrote in its iPhone User Guide.

The Action button can be customized with different actions users can assign to the button such as the camera and flashlight. 

To use Shortcuts and Accessibility, users have to tap a blue button to select a specific action.
