Control music playback from headphones


The headphones that came with your iPhone also let you control music playback from the button on the microphone.

  • Press button once to pause a song and press it again to resume playing the song. (If you do this when a call is coming in, the music pauses and the call is answered. When you press it to hang up, the music resumes playing.)
  • Press button twice to advance to the next song.
  • Press button three times to jump back to the previous song.
  • Press button four times to jump back to the previous song and pause it.
