As you may or may not have read in this blog, I recently gave in and bought an iPhone. So far, I love everything about it… I can check my email (from multiple accounts) anywhere I go, web access whenever I need it and the maps feature has already proven to be helpful. The one problem that I’m having is that after listening to a song, if I go into SMS or Mail, the Play icon remains in the upper bar next to the batter icon, even when no song or video is playing.
iPhone Play Icon – Update
I found an update that seems to work on my phone. When you’re done listening to music, press the pause button and give the iPhone time to remove the Play icon from the upper menu bar. Then back out of iPod to the previous screen prior to pressing the home button. This seems to remove the play icon from the menu bar.
