imageIf you're listening to music and a call comes in, your iPhone will automatically pause the music to let you answer the call. The headset that came with your iPhone has built-in features to help you deal with calls. Here's what you can do:

• To answer a call: Press and release the mic button located on the headset cord.

• To decline a call: Press and hold the mic button for a couple of seconds and then release. You will hear a couple of beeps, and the call will go straight to voice mail.

• To end the call: Press and release the mic button.


Use the headset's mic button to handle incoming calls while you listen to music.
