Answer Source

You can change track position with help of MPRemoteCommandCenter on iOS 9.1 and higher.

if (floor(NSFoundationVersionNumber) > NSFoundationVersionNumber_iOS_9_0) {
            MPRemoteCommandCenter *commandCenter = [MPRemoteCommandCenter sharedCommandCenter];
            [commandCenter.changePlaybackPositionCommand setEnabled:true];
            [commandCenter.changePlaybackPositionCommand addTarget:self action:@selector(changedThumbSliderOnLockScreen:)];

and method

- (MPRemoteCommandHandlerStatus)changedThumbSliderOnLockScreen:(MPChangePlaybackPositionCommandEvent *)event
    // change position
    [self setCurrentPlaybackTime:event.positionTime];
    // update MPNowPlayingInfoPropertyElapsedPlaybackTime
    [[MPNowPlayingInfoCenter defaultCenter] setNowPlayingInfo:songInfo];

    return MPRemoteCommandHandlerStatusSuccess;
