Unless you choose otherwise, any Apple iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus will be set, by default, on the loud ring mode. This means that whatever call, text message, or any other notification from any of your apps you will receive, the alert will go loud and clear through the speakers of the device. If you prefer the alternative of the mute and silence options, so that no notification sound to pierce the silence, it shouldn’t be too hard to get it.
In fact, you’ll be happy to discover that you have more than one option to mute your smartphone and avoid any kind of unwanted interruptions, wherever you are, whatever you do.
Long story short, you can use the Apple iPhone 8 and Apple iPhone 8 Plus menus to switch from the loud ring mode to Mute. And you also have the option to activate a series of motions and gestures that, once executed, will automatically silence the device, temporarily stopping that notification sound. These motions work together with the loud ring mode, which means you can mute an iPhone with a specific gesture without having to actually disable the loud ring mode!
