Override mute switch?

Post by teacherguy » Sat Jan 05, 2019 10:45 pm

Is there a way to override the mute switch (on iPhone) or setting (on iPad)?

I'd be pretty "Effed-Off" if someone over-rid my mute switch.

On my Android phone I set the sound to mute
for a reason (I don't want my son in Philadelphia
waking me up at what is 3 am in the morning in Bulgaria,
but I do want to read his messages later, over breakfast).

Yes, fair enough. But this is clearly possible in Xcode. I am able to hear audio from iTunes, Youtube, etc. all the time on my iPhone with the mute switch engaged. The mute switch stops notification sounds and the ringer.

...or is there at least a way to determine if the mute switch is engaged?

The mute switch stops notification sounds and the ringer.
BUT, as you stated, it lets through iTunes music . . .

So, at the risk of teaching my Granny to suck eggs; have you made a dead-simple standalone
that plays one short tune for iOS and run it on iOS to see if the mute blocks it or not?
