Ever wondered what that thing on your earphone is for?

If you carry your earphones in your bag, chances are, they would be tangled by the time you pull them out.

And trying to undo the knots which sometimes can look like brain teasers can really make us frustrated.

Apparently, many of us iPhone users do not know is that there is actually a function on our headphones that avoids this specific problem.

Do you see that tiny attachment that hangs on your headphone cord? Yep, that’s the one!

By moving it up towards the mic button, it can clip the two cords together and keep them tangle free. Yes, we also wished we knew earlier!

How do you normally keep them untangled?
