iOS 7 to soon let head movements control iPhones and iPads

iOS 7, the next version of Apple’s iOS, will soon let head movements (for related news click here) control the iPhone (for more on the Apple iPhone 5 click here) and the iPad (for more on the Apple iPad 4G click here).img_1290

The report comes to us courtesy of 9to5Mac (for original story click here). According to the site, “Discovered by an anonymous tipster, iOS 7′s “Accessibility” section now includes a feature that allows you to control your iPhone or iPad with left or right head movements. We’ve tested this ourselves and found it to be quite accurate, but it’s quite tedious to control your device this way since it cycles through all of the options on the screen and you move your head when it is bordering around the option you want.

“You can also make the left or right head movement act as a home button, start Siri, open Notification Center, open the App Switcher, decrease volume, increase volume, or simply tap.”
