This is a feature that is available on the iPhone and iPad, with another claim from Apple that is seeking an injunction against Samsung's use of a patented technology for detecting microphones when they are inserted into the headphone jack, which has been rejected.

The final decision should arrive in August, but we don't know if Samsung could avoid the import ban through a software update - something that could easily be done between now and then.
