    Is Sonos limited to the 10 minute background limit in iOS?

    I realise music-playing apps are not limited to 10 mins, but the Sonos app isn't actually playing music on the iOS device.

    I'm not sure I understand what your saying, it remote control app. Apologies if I've missed what you mean.

    Using the Sonos app you can play the music that's physically stored on your iPhone on the Sonos. But after 10 mins usually iOS kills background tasks. So I'm asking how the Sonos can still "see" the music on the phone after 10 mins

    I've never had any issues with the music stopping when playing from either the iPhone or iPad via the Sonos.
