How to Turn Off Annoying System Sounds on Your iPhone or iPad

Your iPhone and iPad can do a lot, but you’ve probably wondered whether or not there should be so much noise with it. When you do certain things on an iPhone or iPad, such as typing on the keyboard, taking photos, and locking the screen, many system sounds go off.

You can actually disable these annoying noises without putting your iPhone or iPad on silent mode by following a few simple steps. We’ll show you how to do it below.

How to Disable Keyboard Clicks, Lock Sounds, and Haptics

You can probably guess what keyboard clicks are. The lock sound is the clicking noise you make when you put your iPhone or iPad to sleep.

And haptics refers to the clicks you hear when you open action menus or perform other tap-and-go gestures. To disable keyboard clicks, lock sounds, and haptics on your iPhone and iPad, simply follow these instructions.

By following these steps, you should have muted keyboard clicks, lock sounds, and system haptics. Keep in mind that you can achieve this without even touching the setting by using your iPhone’s silent mode.

There’s no easy setting you can adjust to mute your iPhone or iPad camera’s shutter sound. However, there is a workaround that you can use with Live Photos.

AA Live Photo saves a short video as a moving photo that can also capture audio. To turn on the feature, all you have to do is open the Camera app and tap on the thick white circle at the top of the app. The app will tell you whether Live Photos mode is on or not.

When Live Photos is enabled, your iPhone or iPad will automatically silence camera noise. You can also silence the sound by putting your device in silent mode.

Turning Off System Sounds on iPhone and iPad

By following these steps, you should be able to eliminate a lot of the unnecessary noises your iPhone or iPad makes. Keyboard clicks, lock sounds, camera noises, and system haptics will now be muted. You can turn them back on at any time. If you enjoy a quieter iPhone, you can also disable the screenshot sound.

Turning off the camera sound on your iPhone is something you probably want to do at times. That sound doesn’t really add anything valuable, and it gets louder at night or when taking pictures in quieter locations. This screenshot is a similar story with sound, which serves no purpose.

If you’re wondering how to turn off the camera shutter sound on your iPhone, or disable the screenshot sound on your iPhone, then you’ve come to the right place. We’ll show you several ways to turn off these sounds.

The easiest way to turn off the camera sound on your iPhone 13, 12, 11, X, 8, 7, 6, SE, or any other model is to flip the mute switch on the side of your device. Every iPhone model has a ring/silent switch at the top left.

In silent mode, your iPhone won’t ring for calls and other alerts. However, it will vibrate if you have the Settings > Sounds & Haptics > Vibrate on Silent slider enabled. Crucially, putting your iPhone in silent mode also prevents the camera and screenshots from playing.

When the switch is close to the screen, Ring Mode is enabled, so your device will play sounds as normal. When it’s in the silent position, you’ll see an orange color below the switch. Just move the switch to the silent position (away from your device’s screen) and you can take as many silent screenshots and pictures as you want.

On the iPhone 6s and later, you can capture Live Photos. These “moving pictures” include a few seconds of video and sound before and after you take the photo. If you enable Live Photos, your iPhone will not play the camera sound – as it would be audible in the Live Photo and thus ruining it.
