Not many folks appreciate the loud camera shutter sound. Personally, I make sure to keep it quiet before snapping photos at public places. Also when I'm sitting in the bus or enjoying my travel by flight, I mute camera shutter sound on my iPhone while capturing selfies to ensure others aren't disturbed by my action.
Turning off the iPhone camera shutter sound is not a big deal. There are two simple ways to do it. More after the jump.
How to Turn Off/Mute Camera Shutter Sound on iPhone and iPad
Note: One thing worth noting is that there are some countries like Japan and Korea where users must have to keep the camera sound enabled. Hence, if you are living in such countries, you won't be able to mute camera sound of your iOS device.
Use the Mute or Ring/Silent Switch
You can use the mute switch to comfortably turn off the shutter sound of the camera app.
One thing you need to know that it will also mute incoming calls and notifications. So, once you have captured the photos, make sure to turn off the silent switch to unmute the notifications as well as incoming calls sound.
Turn Down the Volume
Another easy way to silent the shutter sound is to use the volume button. But if you try to turn down the volume of your device while in the Camera app, burst mode will be triggered. So, be sure to lower the volume before launching the Camera app on your device.
You can either use the volume down button located on the left side of your device or swipe up from the bottom of the screen to bring up Control Center and then swipe down on the volume button to lower the sound.
Alternately, you can open Settings app → Sounds & Haptics → and then drag the Ringer and Alerts slider button to the left side to mute the volume.
That's pretty much it!
