The default audio session category.
- iOS 3.0+
- Mac Catalyst 13.0+
- tvOS 9.0+
- watchOS 2.0+
Your audio is silenced by screen locking and by the Silent switch (called the Ring/Silent switch on iPhone).
By default, using this category implies that your app’s audio is nonmixable—activating your session will interrupt any other audio sessions which are also nonmixable. To allow mixing, use the
ambient category instead.
