We all know for a fact that smartphones are absolutely essential right now.
If you need to access your email, do some work, listen to some music, your smartphone can get things done for you.
Are you an iPhone owner? It is possible that you've used it to stream a film or series on Netflix, to jam some music on Spotify or Apple Music, or to even view a few YouTube clips. The phone's built-in speakers simplify things for you, especially if your headphones are not closeby, and the sound quality is good to boot.
However, there are a few moments when having sound on can be uncomfortable or even unnecessary, like when you are in the middle of a meeting or you are reading in the library.
Fortunately, muting your iOS device is fast and simple and it will make sure you do not have any embarrassing or inconvenient experiences when you least expect.

Be aware that activating silent mode as you view a clip or listen to songs will instantly mute the music playing. However, activating this before you start playing music or clips will not mute the sound.
