IOS video player sound coming through receiver

I’m on Expo 25, testing on IPhone 6S plus, using the VideoPlayer component. I’ve noticed if my phone is on locked mode - the video sound comes through the receiver as opposed to the speaker, making it difficult to hear. Is this expected behavior? I’m setting the audio config before mounting the video component like so

await Audio.setAudioModeAsync({
      playsInSilentModeIOS: true,
      allowsRecordingIOS: false,
      shouldDuckAndroid: false,
      interruptionModeAndroid: Audio.INTERRUPTION_MODE_ANDROID_DO_NOT_MIX

Any guidance is appreciated, thanks.


Yes, I’ve seen this issue as well. I was thinking there was no sound, but I will test for sound actually coming through the receiver. So +1 on this issue. My issue is when the ring/silent switch on the side of the iPhone is in on mode.
