As iPhone owners have probably noticed, when taking photos, the camera is accompanied by a characteristic sound. Many users do not pay attention to this sound, but sometimes there are situations when such “musical accompaniment” can interfere with others, for example, when you need to photograph a lot of documents in a small office space in which other people work besides you.

There is currently no option to turn off the shutter-click sound in iOS settings (but there is an option to turn off keyboard clicks and screen lock sounds), however there are a few tweaks to do this.
It is worth noting that in some countries filming with a camera without sound is prohibited at the legislative level (Japan and South Korea), therefore, it is impossible to disable the camera shutter sound in the iPhone for the markets of such countries without jailbreak.

How to turn off camera sound on iPhone
To begin with, the volume buttons located on the edge of the iPhone can only reduce the volume of the camera shutter sound. Moreover, it is necessary to reduce the sound when the Camera application is inactive. Otherwise (when the Camera application is running), the buttons function as a shutter release.
The easiest way to completely turn off the camera sound on most iPhones is to activate silent mode using the toggle switch on the left side of the device.
When the mode is activated, the display will show an inverted bell icon with the inscription “Silent Mode On”…
Another way out is to launch the Music or Podcasts app, play a song or podcast, and turn the volume down to zero. Then we minimize the program using the “Home” button and activate the camera. Shooting will proceed without the shutter clicking. If you don’t want to drain your battery, pause the track or podcast that is playing.
Note that when shooting in Live Photo mode, the camera also works without sound.
Finally, you can download camera apps from the App Store, such as the Microsoft Pix, that can be configured to turn off the shutter click.
