Apple Headphone Controls You Never Knew
Your all-white headphones that come attached to every Apple device have a lot more to offer then what you just thought!
They weren’t just headphones with a remote adaptor attached to them (unless that’s what you thought), they do more then turning your volume up or down. Here’s what you can do with Apple headphones, while attached to any iOS device, including iPhone, iPad or an iPod Touch. Infect it’s not just the specific Apple headphones; you can use any other headphone with a remote adaptor.
Follow the tactics and excite yourself with performing all your useful functions but with advanced ways:
- While you’re enjoying your sound (music), toggle pause or play by tapping the center button once.
- If you want to fast forward a song, tap the center button twice and long-press on the second tap.
- For rewinding a song, tap three times and long-press on the third tap.
- For skipping a song, double tap.
- For the previous song, triple tap.
- For an incoming call, tap the center button once to answer. Tap again to hang up.
- For ignoring the incoming call, long-press the center button. Two beeps will sound in your ear to confirm that the caller was sent to voice mail.
- If you’re in a call and a second call comes in, tap the center button once to switch calls. To end that new call, hold the center button down for 2 seconds.
- Your headphones can be used as a shutter release and will give super-steady shots in clicks. Tap the volume-up button to capture a photo.
- Siri can be prompted for iPhone 4S users, by long-pressing the center button.
