How to loop audio using AVAudioPlayer and numberOfLoops

Swift version: 5.1

Paul Hudson    @twostraws   

By default AVAudioPlayer plays its audio from start to finish then stops, but you can control how many times to make it loop by setting its numberOfLoops property. For example, to make your audio play five times in total, you’d write this:

audioPlayer.numberOfLoops = 5

You can also set this property to -1, which automatically causes AVAudioPlayer to loop the sound forever.
