Fix #1- Faulty earphone

If this issue is arising when you have plugged in an earphone in the iPhone, then there is a problem with the controller of that earphone. Maybe it gets automatically triggered, and as a result, the song starts playing automatically. So you know that the solution is very simple, just replace the earphone with a new one.
