How to Launch Your Music Player From Control Center

One of the great things about iOS 7’s Control Center is that it gives you easy access to the music player controls.

Instead of hitting the Home button to take you to the home screen and having to search for your music app, you can simply tap the song and artist while you’re in Control Center and it will automatically launch the app. This is a nice little shortcut that will save you a few extra taps when you want to change songs.
