    Hi sorry if this is in the wrong section.

    As it is, I had a weird dream last night that I got my iP6 (it was the wrong colour and so I freaked out, but that's not the point of this topic).

    In the dream I actually tried out a 'feature' whereby you could use the Touch ID sensor as media controls, for example if the phone is in your pocket or you're keeping it under a desk or you don't want the screen on / can't see the screen.

    Tap once: Play/Pause
    Swipe right: Forward one track
    Swipe left: Back one track

    Is this possible?

    Activator would allow you to do the taps. The button isn't made to be swiped on except when you're adding fingers though.
