This is another small but great feature in iOS 7: you can now scrub through songs from the lockscreen if you are playing them through the official Music app. This doesn’t work with third-party music apps, like Rdio, and in practice in the first beta, it can be a little difficult to scrub (the touch target is too small). Still a very nice addition indeed.

    I can’t get that to work right, as I try to swipe it or the volume – it jumps around crazy and tries to unlock my phone still. What’s cool is that the music switcher stays up on the lock screen between waking it up.

    I love that change as well! iOS 7 seems to be chalk-full of those type of convenient enhancements and features.
