New WebView Handling

We have migrated to WKWebView, the latest iOS webkit, which fulfills Appleā€™s webview requirements. In the process of this migration, we implemented structural changes that have improved overall playback performance as well.

  • Fixed a lockscreen issue where the play/pause buttons in the lockscreen control center flicker for less than 1 second when pressed when the device is locked.
  • Fixed an issue where sometimes when the device is locked, the elapsed playback time does not display in the lockscreen control center time slider.
