In this tutorial, we will guide you on how to mute a video on your iPhone. Sometimes, you may want to watch a video without any sound, or perhaps you want to silence an annoying background noise.

Whatever the reason may be, muting a video on your iPhone is a simple process. Let’s go through the steps below:

Step 1: Open the Photos App

To begin, locate and open the Photos app on your iPhone. This app is represented by a multicolored pinwheel icon.

Step 2: Select the Video

Navigate through your albums or camera roll and select the video that you want to mute. Tap on it to open it in full-screen mode.

Step 3: Tap on Edit

In the top-right corner of the screen, tap on “Edit”. This will allow you to make changes to your video.

Step 4: Tap on the Volume Icon

At the bottom-left corner of the screen, you will see a volume icon that resembles a speaker. Tap on this icon to access the audio settings for your video.

Step 5: Adjust Volume Settings

A slider will appear that allows you to adjust the volume of your video. Slide it all the way to the left side (to zero) in order to mute the sound completely. The volume icon will have a line through it, indicating that the sound is muted.


  • If you only want to reduce or increase the volume instead of muting it completely, slide the volume slider accordingly.
  • You can also use this method to unmute a previously muted video by sliding the volume slider back to the right.

Step 6: Save the Changes

After muting the video, tap on “Done” at the bottom-right corner of the screen to save your changes. Your video will now be permanently muted.

Congratulations! You have successfully learned how to mute a video on your iPhone using the Photos app. Now you can enjoy watching videos without any sound or eliminate any unwanted noise from your recordings.
