      The new background playback mode provides uninterrupted playback of your current file on iOS, even when the app is running in the background or your screen is locked. For new iOS users, this is now the default setting. We've added this playback mode due to limitations in iOS that prevent any form of level match when playback in background is supported. However, we've made the experience seamless for you. If you wish to enable Level Match, we provide a helpful hint that clarifies this limitation and allows you to activate Level Match while concurrently disabling background playback. iOS: Background playback mode
