Turns out your iPhone headphones can control more than just your phone. This Quick Tip shows you their hidden secret.
Hi, I'm Molly Wood from CNET.com, and I?ve got a cool Quick Tip for you today -- an easy way to control iTunes on your new MacBook Pro. And here it is. Your iPhone stereo headset ? or any headset with the ?microphone capsule? on it, like Apple?s standalone earphones with remote and mic, can control iTunes on the new MacBook and MacBook Pro. Just plug it into the headphone jack, and it works just like it works with your iPhone. Click once to pause, click twice to move to the next track, and click three times to move to the previous track. And it?s just that easy! I'm Molly Wood for CNET.com, and you?re welcome.
