> It does not look like works on iOS in the background.  Additionally I
tried with{playAudioWhenScreenIsLocked : true}); but this did not change the
behavior.  Running with the application in the foreground works as expected.
 I also have Background Modes 'Audio and AirPlay' enabled (note I tested notifications beep/vibrate
in the background with success).
> Tracking the issue, it looks like the error occurs in CDVSound.m in function prepareToPlay
on the line:
> bError = ![audioFile.player prepareToPlay];
> This sets error to YES.  This is before the check of whether the audio should play when
the screen is locked.  On the console I receive the error:
> Play sound failed!
> code: 4
