How to Access Play Controls for Music or Podcasts When iPhone is Locked

by


The iPhone 'Home' button is the circle shaped button located on the bottom of an iPhone.
This shows the iPhone music controls which appear on the screen of a locked iPhone when you double tap the iPhone Home button.

Here's a cool iPhone tip I discovered not too long ago that allows you to control your music or podcasts while your iPhone screen is locked.

  1. While your iPhone is locked, simply tap on the 'Home' button twice. (Double tap)
  2. The Play, Pause, Forward, and Back button will appear on the screen, which will allow you to control your music.

If you're like me and listen to music or podcasts while falling asleep, accessing the pause button to turn off music while barely awake is an absolute necessity.  Before I learned of this double tap method to access the Play controls it was a nightmare trying to unlock my iPhone to turn music off while half asleep.
