Those users with jailbroken iDevices can have great chance to get system wide access to Music controls on iOS 9 iPhone with new jailbreak tweak called TinyPlayer Lite. The tweak offers you convenient way of controlling music on your jailbroken iOS device providing you with a nice widget that you can move around the screen for controlling the music playback. Perhaps the best thing about TinyPlayer is that you can not only access it from the homescreen but also from within apps.
How To Enable System Wide Access To Music Controls In iOS 9
In order to get system wide access to Music controls on your iOS 9 iPhone you should first jailbreak your device. At present, you can only jailbreak iOS 9.1 or lower using Pangu tool. Then navigate to Cydia and download TinyPlayer Lite tweak for free.
Once installed, the tweak will add preferences pane in Settings where you can enable Activator gesture. With this gesture, you can easily hide or unhide the widget from anywhere.
The widget comes with an additional tray for accessing the playback controls. To view this tray tap and hold on the play button. Here you can play/pause a song, skip to the next or the previous track. Swiping the tray to the left will display icons for sharing the song to Facebook or Twitter.
TinyPlayer Lite offers tap gestures for controlling the song. By double tapping on the widget, you can skip to the next song and a trip tap will play the previous song. TinyPlayer is not just about the functionality as it looks good too, and offers both dark and light modes. You can switch between the two modes by pressing and holding on the widget.
The tweak works with the stock Music app and third-party music apps like Spotify, Deezer, SoundCloud etc. The tweak’s interface looks attractive and the floating widget is compact in size. Taking into consideration that this is only the lite version with limited features so we should expect that a Pro version will have more features, configuration options and additional themes.
