When I bought my iPhone 5 it came in a sweet box with the brand new Apple earphones.
The ones made for your ears … And because they are not round the earplug is not round anymore (that’s what they said in the ad).
Sounds like a nice marketing idea. Actually the earphone fits well in your ears, but I had to get used to it.
The great thing about the apple earphones is that there are always hidden functions that you will never use or you will discover by accident. To speed up the process, I decided to bring you up to speed in no time, read what follows.
1. If you are using your earphones to have phone conversations
. For an incoming call, 1xtap the center button to answer
. While done, 1xtap to hang up
. To send a call you don’t want to answer to the voice mail, long press the center button
. While already engaged in a phonecall, 1xtap the center button to switch to the new call
2. If you are using your earphones to listen to music
. To fast-forward a song, tap the center button twice and long-press on the second tap
. To rewind a song, 3xtap + 1 long-press on the third tap
. To skip a song, 2xtap
. To go to the previous song, 3xtap
. To stop or launch the music, 1xtap
3. If you are taking pictures
You can use the up or down button to take pictures
4. If you want to talk to Siri, long press the center button (for 4s and 5 users)
