    So I have noticed this symbol in the bottom right twice...(see screenshot)

    First when I quickly plugged in my headphones and double pressed the home button to bring up iPod controls (on lock screen). I didn't get the screen capture then because I relocked my screen fast and it was gone when I brought the double tap controls back up.

    The second, I quickly plugged in my headphones unlocked phone completely, and went to iPod and pressed play. I then saw the symbol (as seen below), and quickly captured it. Any clue what it is? Output controls since it was when I plugged in my headphones, if so why isn't it there all the time?

    I do that same 'quick' method all the time, and so far those are the only two times I have seen it.

    Thanks!

    Airplay to stream to Apple TV, etc. Dig it.

    I assume you asking how to get AirPlay to work. You need to have a 2nd gen Apple TV connected to you wifi network when the iPhone is on the same wifi network you should be able to click the symbol and select the Apple TV and it will begin streaming to the Apple TV it is very easy to do.
