Global Variable

AVAudioSessionCategorySoloAmbient

The default audio session category.

Declaration

const AVAudioSessionCategory AVAudioSessionCategorySoloAmbient;

Discussion

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 AVAudioSessionCategoryAmbient category instead.
