iOS 6.1: New Lockscreen Music Controls

Posted in Apple News, iOS on 29/01/2013 by Chris Hauk


Apple released iOS 6.1 on Monday, and music lovers will find one pleasant surprise. It’s not amazing, but it still deserves to be noticed.


If you’re playing a song in the Music app, and you’re sitting on the lockscreen, just double click the Home button. The music controls you’ll see on the screen are now consistent with the controls you’ll see inside the Music app.

It’s not a huge deal, but consistency is always nice.
