iOS 7 will soon allow head gestures to control iPhones (check out Apple iPhone 5 here) and iPads (check out Apple iPad 4G here).

This is according to 9to5Mac (check out 9to5Mac here). The site reports, “Discovered by an anonymous tipster, iOS 7′s “Accessibility” section now includes a feature that allows you to control your iPhone or iPad with left or right head movements. 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.

“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.”
