How to Disable Camera Shutter Sound on iPhone

The sound that the Apple iPhone camera makes when it takes pictures is loud and annoying. You can silence it though with just a few steps.

Just use the “Volume Down” button to toggle the phone volume down to the vibrate setting.

Alternately, you can go to “Settings > “Sounds” and slide the “Ringer and Alerts” setting all the way to the left.

Once this is completed, the camera shutter will not make a sound.

Users who have Jailbreaked their device can turn the sound off forever by renaming the sound file that is played.

  1. Download and install iPhoneBrowser.
  2. Create a ‘dummy’ file on your computer called photoShutter.caf. Make it using notepad or anything else, it doesn’t matter.
  3. Using iPhoneBrowser, navigate to /System/Library/Audio/UISounds.
  4. Replace the photoShutter.caf file with the ‘dummy’ file you created.
