But for the first time we have an active ring, i.e., nothing but Apple’s new i-Ring. This ring not only increases your value and craze but it also helps you in many ways. In simple words we can say it as a motion controller for Apple devices.

We generally use our finger tips or stylus to perform action on Mac, iPad, iPod touch or iPhone right? Here after you may not use any of these to control any of the music apps or effects on these devices. Apple has designed i-Ring to take over these actions.

You can assign axis like left or right etc… with the specific parameter that is routed into the app. Even gestures can be recognized with the six parameters that were provided with the app to control the motion.
