Accessing all Apple system icons for UIButton

iOS Programming - 14 hours ago

I see that BarButtonItems and NavigationItems have system icons like Play or Pause but is there anyway to access the audio source icons that Apple uses (for use in a UIButton not barbuttonitem or navigationitem)? I don't know if I am using the right term but on your iPhone in iTunes its the icon at very bottom in center. Looks like a triangle with rings, but if you put AirPods in it changes to an AirPods icon. I am trying to use these...would using those be against Apple's policy?
