Here’s just a very quick thought that hit me: from what I’ve heard (via TipB), the double tap of the home button will now bring up the special multi-tasking dock, and a double-tap-and-hold will now bring up iPhone Favorites (no other shortcuts allowed, presently). What happened to the double-tap for iPod playback controls, a feature that has been around since iPhone OS 1.1.1 (via TiidBITS)?
From what I’ve seen in screenshots and reports, the pop-up is currently inaccessible when the iPhone is awake (read: not on the lock screen), and I wonder if Steve and Co. think that multi-tasking is fast enough and that users won’t mind switching out of current apps to go to the iPod.app to switch songs.
I certainly hope we’ll hear more about this at WWDC: that little pop-up was one of my favourite little features on the iPhone.
