Do you use the headphone that comes with the box when purchasing a new smartphone? We have asked many users about this question too, and most of them bought a new earbud, in-ear, or even an on-ear headphone to use with their smartphone, instead of using the bundled-in headphone.
However, with the latest version of Apple EarBuds, you might think again and consider to use it instead of getting a new pair of headphone. These earbuds come with some cool features you might not know yet.
Interesting Features Of Apple EarBuds You Might Not Know About
1. Adjust Volume Or Play & Pause
When getting a new iPhone or iPod, a lot of users never take a look at the bundled-in headphone. That said, they don’t even know that it gets a built-in remote and microphone. It’s tiny but handy for adjusting volume, as well as play and pause the music.
To use it, you just need to press the “+”, or “-” button to increase or decrease the volume of your iPhone, no matter what you are doing: listen to music, watching movies, or receiving a phone call.
There is a space between the “+” and “-” button, which you can press to play or pause your music. This button can also be used to receive phone calls, or end them. For rejecting a phone call, press and hold it for two seconds. You will hear two small beeps that tell you the phone call is rejected and redirected to voicemail.
How about switching between two phone calls?
It is not difficult as you can quickly jump from one call to another one by pressing the middle button. The first call will be held and waiting for you to jump back by pressing the button again.
2. Forward Music And Video
Did you know how to forward your music and video with your Apple EarBuds? There are just three buttons, and all of them have their own functions.
How about one button that can do multiple functions?
It’s correct! The middle button that you use to play & pause your music can be used to forward as well. To use it, you just need to double-press it and then hold for forwarding. After that, release the button to stop forward.
Besides, to skip a song you don’t want to listen, double-press the button but doesn’t hold it down. You can also press it three times quickly to back to the previous track.
3. Take A Photo In The Camera App
For selfie, you can press the volume up button on your iPhone to command your camera to take a picture. This feature also works when you press the “+” button on your EarBud. It’s quite useful when you need to shoot a photo or record a video with a tripod.
4. Activate Siri Assistant
Don’t know how to activate Siri when listening to music? It’s simple! Just need to press and hold the middle button for a few seconds and then Siri will be activated. It’s immensely handy when you need some quick answers, but your iPhone is in your purse or pocket.
5. Use Apple EarPods With Mac OS
Beyond iPhone and iPod, you can also use your EarPod with your Mac OS computer. Just need to plug into your computer and then listen to your favorite music, as well as control the volume of the QuickTime player and iTunes.
