Title: METHOD OF DETECTING EXTERNAL DEVICES AND ELECTRONIC DEVICE FOR PROCESSING SAME
Abstract:
Disclosed are a method of recognizing an external device and an electronic device for processing the method. The electronic device may include a memory configured to store at least one earphone polarity information; and a processor electrically coupled to the memory, wherein the processor executing instructions stored in the memory is configured to detect an insertion of earphones into a connector of the electronic device, acquire a first polarity information stored in the memory, based on the first polarity information, set a sound path for inputting or outputting a sound to or from the electronic device, determine a second polarity information corresponding to the inserted earphones, determine whether the first polarity information is compatible with the second polarity information, and reset the sound path based on the second polarity information when the first polarity information is not compatible with the second polarity information.
