Ben’s iPhone Tip: Quick Playback Control


I thought I’d share a little iPhone tip that you may or may not find useful. 

If, like me, you listen to a lot of music on your iPhone you probably find yourself stopping, starting and skipping tracks using the button on the headphones. 

For those who don’t know, here are the facts:
One click: Pauses currently playing music. One click (when paused): Resumes music playback. Two clicks: Skips current track.

The annoyance I’ve found is the way in which the headphone button becomes unresponsive after the music has been paused for a little while and the iPhone heads back into regular standby mode. 

This often happens when I’ve been listening to music and use the headphone button to pause while I talk to someone.  Usually, by the time I’ve finished talking, the button doesn’t resume playback because the iPhone has gone into standby mode.

So, a cunning plan for those who carry their iPhone in their pocket. Find the home button on your device (either inside your pocket or through your chosen garment) and double click it. You will now find the button on the headphones will work again and you wont need to remove your phone from your pocket to start playing music again. 

Simple yet effective.
