Sonos adds iOS Force Touch compatibility, Split View support with latest software update
OREANDA-NEWS. June 22, 2016. Now you can control your Sonos speaker on an iOS device directly from the lock screen.
The company just released a software update for its multiroom streaming speaker system that will allow customers to perform a wider range of iOS shortcuts, including quick navigation from the lock screen, Force Touch access to menus, Split View support, and more.
Before version 6.3 was released today, iOS users had to unlock their devices and click over to the Sonos app to do things like change tracks or adjust the volume. Now, the company has enabled a shortcut that offers all those functions directly from the lock screen of any iOS device running version 8.0 or higher.
