Change a song from any application

I hate when you’re in the middle of something on your iPhone, listening to music, and that terribly annoying Justin Bieber song comes on.

But it’s really easy to switch songs with a couple taps and swipes.

1. Double tap the home button

This will bring up the application drawer which shows any apps running on the phone in order by most recently opened.

iPhone App Drawer

Access any open application on your iPhone

2. Swipe left to access Music

Swiping left will give you access to the basic music controls.

iTunes access from App Drawer

Now you can open iTunes, pause your music or skip forward or backwards.

This works for any music app: iTunes, Songza, Podcasts, Pandora, Spotify, etc.
