WEB DESK: Many of us think that earphone’s sole purpose is to listen to the songs. But what many of us does not know are the hidden features that your headphones can do specially if you are an Apple products user.
Here are ten uses of your earpods that you were unaware of.
1. Play/pause songs
Click center button: If you want to start playing the song you left off on—or to pause it midstream—simply click the center button to get the ball rolling (or stopping). In addition to songs, this (and the rest of the music-related tricks) will work with videos and podcasts, and applies to streaming services like Spotify as well as your iTunes library.
2. Skip to the next song
Double-click center button: To skip over the filler in your favorite albums, or to reach “Eye of The Tiger” and give your stamina a much needed boost at the tail end of your morning jog, a quick double click will do the trick.
3. Start a song over
Triple-click center button: If you just can’t listen to “Uptown Funk” enough times, you can triple click the center button to repeat the funk over, and over, and over again. Don’t believe me? Just click (thrice).
Triple-click and hold (during a song/video)Because sometimes, you just want to experience the good part all over again.
