What’s new in iOS 14.2 beta?
Updated now playing controls and AirPlay 2 interface on the Lock screen
The Lock screen now playing music controls have been updated with various subtle changes and features. The scrubber knob for the playhead indicator is now larger, as is the knob for the volume controls. You’ll also notice that the timestamp that shows the current position of the playhead is now directly beside the playhead instead of to the left of the timeline. The time remaining, which previously resided on the right side of the timeline has been omitted entirely with this new design.
Other new features include a new AirPlay button design and new popover style for AirPlay 2 destinations. A similar redesign has been employed for the ability to control other AirPlay 2-enabled speakers and TVs on your local network.
