Sonos users rejoice – you can now control the volume level of your
music with the volume buttons on your iOS device. Prior to this software upgrade you had to use the slider switch on your Apple device. Now Sonos sells the nice, fancy Sonos Control for their WiFi home stereo solution for $349 and the best reason to purchase one of these is because of the fixed volume buttons and of course the fixed mute button which allows instant volume scrubbing.
You see without a fixed button to control button it takes time to reduce volume in response lets say to a ringing phone. First you have to press a button to wake your iPhone, etc. Then you had to enter your password and potentially reopen the Sonos app.
With fixed volume controls, you just press the volume buttons on the gadget of your choice to make the sound level just right.
The latest Sonos update is available in the App Store and is worth checking out. To me its impressive when a company gives users an upgrade which decreases the need to buy another one of their products. Nice going Sonos.
