In 2016, we showed our readers an innovative mini player widget for jailbroken iPhones dubbed Playtopia that could shrink to a compact size while floating over the top of any interface for convenient music playback control from anywhere.

I often catch myself accidentally tapping play for music or videos via my iPhone even when I don’t have my AirPods in my ears and ready to go.

Apple is regarded as one of the most influential players in the music industry — not only because of what iTunes once was, but also because of the creation of Apple Music and its seamless integration with the company’s expansive mobile device and desktop computer offerings.
Given just how much Apple seems to have invested in the music industry, it’s somewhat curious as to why the Now Playing interface on iPhones and iPads hasn’t changed much over the years.
