How to mute ringer on iPhone

February 22, 2016

Finally Apple started to support their own keyboard the way it suits me, meaning pressing “enter” sends an imessaage/sms. Took them several years.

Anyway, when I was playing with the keyboard I found out when I press “mute”, it mutes the phone completely without pressing the side (mute) switch, but when I tried to do that from the phone, took me about forever to find a way. So below is my way.

I assigned “mute” to my assistive touch (which is under settings/general/accessibility/assistive touch/custom top level menu) and assigned “assistive touch” to my “accessibility shortcut” (which is under settings/geneal/accessbility at the very bottom).

Right now when I press my home button three times, brings “assistive touch” menu and once pressed I’m getting software button which mutes or unmutes my ringer/volume. Pressing the home button three times again, allows me to remove the “assistive touch” software button, so it doesn’t bother me.

Why do I do it that way? Variety of reasons from a broken side mute button to my case, which literally is the case… it is outter box heavy duty, and every time i need to mute the phone have to dig and open the side with my nails or a key, which is a pain and the case becomes loose after a while doing that.

So I hope you like my solution and use it from time to time. I didn’t find anything clear on google, so I wrote it down in order to help to someone like me.

Thank you.
