How to turn off the camera sound on iPhone


When you take a photo on your iPhone, your phone plays a shutter sound to indicate that the photo has been taken. You don’t really need this sound to take pictures and turning it off is easy.

Mute the camera shutter sound on iPhone

The easiest way to turn off your iPhone’s camera shutter sound is to put your phone on silent mode. When you do this, your iPhone will turn off all sounds, including those from the camera.

Later, when you have taken your photos, you can turn off the silent mode.

To start your phone and put it in silent mode, on the left side of your iPhone, turn the Ring/Silent switch so that you see the orange color.

If the Ring/Silent switch no longer hides the orange color, your iPhone is in silent mode.

You can now launch the Camera app and take your photos without shutter sounds.

When you’re done shooting and want to disable silent mode, flip the same switch again. And you’re all set.

If your iPhone supports Live Photos, you can enable that feature and your iPhone won’t play any sound while taking those moving photos. However, keep in mind that Live Photos is not available on all iPhone models. In those cases, use the above method as it works on all iPhone models, old or new.

This way you can also quickly turn off the lock sound on your iPhone if you wish.
