Control Media from the Lock Screen

This is a really simple tip but I still find people that don’t know about it.

In the lock screen, double tap the Home button to bring up media controls

Before

Default lock screen

After

Lock screen with media controls

Now you can skip, pause/play, adjust the volume and toggle AirPlay without having to go into your iPhone.

This works for any audio your playing: Music, Songza, Spotify, Pandora, Podcasts, etc.
