How can I max out the volume on iOS on Notification Received?

I am making an app that alerts the user about an urgent notification and I need to increase the volume when the notification is received, in case the device volume is low or mute.

I did do this in android, is it possible on iOS and if yes how please?

For Android, this is how I managed to do it:

private void setNotificationVolumeToMax()
                var audioManager = (AudioManager)GetSystemService(Context.AudioService);

                int max_volume = audioManager.GetStreamMaxVolume(Android.Media.Stream.Notification);
                audioManager.SetStreamVolume(Android.Media.Stream.Notification, max_volume, 0);
            catch (Exception ex)
