iOS goes fullscreen without asking

We need to have an audio stream in backround in a web page.

On iOS as soon as the stream starts it goes full screen. We don’t know why?

Can we prevent it automatically go fullscreen?

The iOS SDK does not currently support audio playback when the app is in the background. It is something we are working on for a future update. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Has that something to do with the app going fullscreen without asking?

Btw, this player does not go fullscreen:

Btw, when I say in background I don’t need the browser to go background. I just need the audio to play while the user is browsing the page (actually watching another video).
