Apple’s iOS 7 is already being tested by developers. The most recent update brought the software to iPad and iPad mini devices. We are hearing about new hidden features in iOS 7 all the time. The latest one discovered by an anonymous tipster and covered by 9to5mac allows you to control your iPhone or iPad with head movements. You can make the head movement act as a home button, start Siri, and control volume on your iPhone.
This feature is not designed for everyone. The fact that you can find it in the “accessibility” section should give you an idea who this is for. We do have to wonder whether Apple has plans to give regular iOS users more sophisticated ways to control their device using body movements.
