Shoot pictures on iOS 5 with your headphones!

Wow how come we didn’t think of this earlier, the guys at cultofmac.com have just reminded everyone that the new to iOS ability to use the volume up button on an iDevice to take a picture, will also mean that you will be able to use the volume up button on your headphones to do the same thing.

Obviously, you’ll need a headset or pair of ear buds that support Apple’s volume-up/volume-down functionality (like Apple’s official ear buds) to get this to work.

Once it’s set up, though, this is just great additional functionality for those of us who take pictures with our iPhones using a tripod, or those of us who want to take really steady shots. Just plug in your headphones, line up your iPhone on a table, and use your headset to trigger the shutter, with no resulting wobble!
