How Do You Mute Volume On iPhone X/iPhone Xr/iPhone Xs/iPhone Xs Max?

As you probably know, Apple iPhone X, iPhone Xr, iPhone Xs or iPhone Xs Max are highly appreciated for a lot more than their general performances. The way they are built, the attention to details, and the ease of use are just as important for all the Apple fans out there.

The Volume option that we are about to briefly discuss will rather reflect the attention to details and ease of use above mentioned. This is one of those extremely simple, often wrongfully ignored things that you need to be aware of.


Who knows when you’ll attend an important meeting, personal or professional, and you will find yourself staring at the iPhone and not knowing how to mute the volume? Especially if you realize this during the event, when the iPhone will keep ringing and you won’t know what to do, it will be even more unpleasant.

In a nutshell, the mute option is different from activating the vibration or the silent mode. But you can use any of these three main options to make the iPhone X, iPhone Xr, iPhone Xs or iPhone Xs Max stop ringing. Moreover, you also have a fourth option, the one that involves using motions and gesture controls, obviously, for controlling the volume of a loud notification in progress.


With the motions and gestures controls, you will be able to let the iPhone on the loud ring mode all the time. And only during an event like the one we were telling you about earlier, when you’re taken by surprise, you will have to mute it with one gesture.

For everyday use, however, when you just want to mute the iPhone X, iPhone Xr, iPhone Xs or iPhone Xs Max volume for good, suffices to use the side volume controller. This key is on the left of the outer case. If you hold it down for a little longer, you’ll watch the device switching through all the ring modes, all the way to the silent mode.


Alternatively, you can set directly from the Sounds options listed within the Settings app. If you choose to mute the iPhone X, iPhone Xr, iPhone Xs or iPhone Xs Max volume from the settings, you’ll gain access to many other aspects, individually for calls, emails, text messages or whatever.
