    So in the release today, the lock screen automatically brings up the iPod controls when a song is playing but I have some issues with this:

    1. In this mode, I can't see the time. They need to put it at the very top, like it is while the phone is unlocked and being used
    2. The double tap is gone, so when I pause a song and then turn my screen off, from that point forward I can't just double tap it again and hit play to resume the song right from the lockscreen. To restart the song, I will now have to unlock the phone, go into the music app, go to now playing, and then hit play.

    Hopefully these issues are addressed in future betas.

    yeah i dont like that there is no sort of Time display with the lock screen music controls... as for playing music randomly have you tried using Control Panel?

    Ah , I can from there. Didn't even realize that. So used to the double tap from iOS 6! Maybe they should give us both options when re-engaging the lock screen?

    Also, if you disable access to the control center from the lock screen, it should revert back to the double tap method, so people have the option to re-start the song from the lock screen. I just tested it and if control center is turned off you would have to go all the way into the iPod app to re-start the song.

    Yeah, I posted about this here:

    Another issue related to this is that when several notifications come in, you can't scroll them to see them all when the music controls are there.

    I hope the controls always being there is actually a bug.

    Control Center is certainly useful in that respect, but if you disable it from being accessible on the lockscreen (since it provides access to quite a bit more than just music controls) then it seems like you'd lose even the basic music controls, which should really still be there whether or not you have Control Center enabled (or at least certainly when you don't have it enabled).
