Are you tired of the loud audio in videos on your iPhone? Do you wish to watch videos without disturbing others around you?

Well, look no further! In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of muting a video on your iPhone using simple steps. So let’s get started!

Step 1: Open the Photos App

To begin, locate and open the Photos app on your iPhone’s home screen. The Photos app is represented by a multicolored pinwheel icon. Once opened, you will have access to all the videos and photos stored on your device.

Step 2: Select the Video

In this step, navigate through your albums or camera roll to find and select the video you want to mute. Tap on the album or camera roll containing the video, then scroll through to locate and tap on the desired video.

Step 3: Tap ‘Edit’

Once you have selected the video, tap on the Edit button located at the top-right corner of your screen. This will open up editing options for your chosen video.

Step 4: Tap ‘Volume’ Icon

In this step, look for an icon that resembles a speaker with sound waves emanating from it. This is typically located near the bottom-left corner of your screen within the editing options menu. Tap on this icon to access volume controls for your video.

Step 5: Drag Volume Slider to Zero

You will now see a volume slider that allows you to adjust the audio level of your video. To mute the video completely, drag this slider all the way to the left until it reaches zero (0) volume level.

Note: Some iPhones may display a toggle switch instead of a volume slider. Simply tap on the toggle switch to mute the video.

Step 6: Tap ‘Done’

Once you have successfully adjusted the volume level to zero, tap on the Done button located at the bottom-right corner of your screen. This will save your changes and exit the editing mode for the video.

Congratulations! You have successfully muted a video on your iPhone! Now you can enjoy watching videos without any audio disturbance.


  • If you want to unmute the video in the future, simply repeat these steps and adjust the volume slider or toggle switch accordingly.
  • If you are unable to locate the Edit button or volume controls, make sure you are using an updated version of iOS.
  • This method only mutes videos within the Photos app. If you wish to mute videos played through other apps, check if those apps have built-in mute options or use the device’s physical volume buttons.

We hope this tutorial has been helpful in guiding you through muting videos on your iPhone. Enjoy your silent video-watching experience!
