How to mute dial pad sound on my iPhone
There are a couple of ways to mute the dial pad sound on your iPhone.
Mute your iPhone
The simplest way to get rid of these dialing sounds is to put your iPhone on mute. Every model of iPhone has a physical mute button located on the left side, just above the volume buttons, which you can toggle to mute the phone.
Simply flip on the mute button and the dialing sounds will turn off. However, all your other sounds will be muted as well. You won’t hear incoming calls or notifications while your iPhone is on mute.
Turn off keyboard sounds
You can turn off the keyboard sounds to deactivate dialing sounds:
- Open “Settings” > “Sounds & Haptics”.
- Scroll down to the bottom and toggle off “Keyboard Clicks”.
Use headphones to silence the external dialing sound
If you temporarily want to get rid of the dialing sounds the iPhone makes while you dial in the number, you can connect your headphones. All the sounds the iPhone makes will go to the headphones and you won’t hear a thing.
Note that you are not actually muting the dialing sounds, you are just redirecting them to the headphones. You will have to put on the headphones or disconnect them to hear the call.
