iOS 7 Beta 2 Features Head Gesture to Compete with Samsung’s Air View


9to5 Mac has uncovered a new Accessibility feature in iOS 7 Beta 2 which allows users to control their iOS 7 devices by moving their head left or right.

“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,” Scott Buscemi reports for 9to5Mac.  “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.”

This is somewhat similar to the AirView feature in Samsung Galaxy S4, in that it allows users to control their smartphone and tablet without having to touch the screen. However, Air View is far more robust and useful in real life scenarios than what Apple has here.
