Not a lot has actually changed for the ‘iPod‘ on an iPhone. There is a bit of a tweak to the buttons to flatten them but all the functions remain the same.
Music playback and fastforward, rewind etc. all work.
The real power of the iPhone Music app is its heavy integration into the iOS.
There are Siri, lock screen and App Bar integrations. And he obvious Bluetooth integrations for supported headsets.
Pity is, all of it has stopped working with iOS 6. Except Siri, which works (when you have 3G connectivity at least).
Take the App Bar. Double tap the home button and up pops a list of running apps. Swipe left to right and up pops the mini-music controls.
In iOS 6 this has stopped working. No play, rewind, fast forward – nothing.
Then there are the Lock Screen controls. Very useful if you don’t want to unlock the device to skip a track.
But, alas, these aren’t functional on iOS 6 either. Utterly broken.
What about Bluetooth?
Alas the same true there. Only controls that work for the Music app are in the App itself.
Anyone else have this issue? Or is it just me? I’m using an iPhone 4S.
