It can be frustrating enough to deal with it, and we already know, so, we won’t insist on what’s obvious. What we want to share with you today is how to put to silence all the sounds of your iPhone. And if you want, you can also do it gradually, tweaking one feature at a time, until you decide what exactly you want to keep active and what you want to deactivate.
