Goodbye forever to camera noise

Current smartphones have a photographic capacity that is amazing , especially when we talk about devices that belong to the high range. To such an extent that they can obtain images that are truly faithful to reality and with great detail. In fact, there are cases like the Huawei P50 Pro that boast a zoom that is unattainable for the vast majority and that is impressive.

That is why we do not need a regular camera , since our phone can perfectly replace it, saving some distances. Wherever we go, we use our mobile phones to photograph an element, be it a monument, a group image or any other aspect, but the terminals have also inherited that heavy shutter sound .

A curious fact is that this noise made by the smartphone camera application is mandatory in certain countries , such as South Korea or Japan. This is because it prevents photos from being taken without consent or at least reduces the cases in which this occurs. Luckily, in Spain there are no regulations related to this option, so there is no problem removing it, although if by any chance you bought your device in one of these two regions, I am afraid it will be impossible for you.

Mute the sound on your smartphone

Now that we have established a previous context, it is time to know the necessary steps to remove the noise from the camera of your mobile. At the beginning of the publication it was mentioned that the procedure to be followed is different on Android and iPhone, so we are going to establish a section for each type of device.


In Google’s operating system, you just have to deactivate a setting within the Camera application settings , although a manual solution is to lower the volume of the smartphone. It is a process that is not at all complicated and that we also detail below:

  1. Open the camera app on your Android phone.
  2. Select the three points in the upper right area and then access the settings.
  3. Turn off the “Shutter Sound” option.


There is no similar option on Apple mobiles, so the only methods available must be done manually . The truth is that it is incomprehensible how an iPhone does not have this factory function, but this is another matter. Here are two ways to remove the shutter sound on iPhone:

  • Slide the mute button from the left side of the iPhone. Remember to put it back in place to listen to calls and notifications.
  • Use the volume button to turn it down, but you must do it before entering the app.
