We have a saying that goes like this: as long as it’s an option available on your iPhone X, iPhone X, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, you have no excuse for not knowing about it! Of course, from knowing about it to knowing how to do it, there’s a shorter or longer way. But this is not one of those things you use once a year and, therefore, a lesson that you afford to skip.
Knowing how to mute and silence the iPhone will be extremely useful when you expect less, like even when you want to take pictures without the camera shutter sound in the background. Anyway, we believe you’ll need it more often to avoid unsolicited interruptions, at work or at home, when you’re spending time with your family.
Another option would be to plug in a adapter like the dual audio and charging cable for iPhone as this would silence your device with all the sound coming from the cable.
