Method 1: Using the Control Center

To quickly turn off the music on your iPhone, follow these simple steps:

  1. Swipe up from the bottom of your screen to open the Control Center. If you’re using an iPhone X or newer model, swipe down from the top-right corner of the screen.

  2. Locate the music player controls in the Control Center. It is represented by a small box with music notes.

  3. Tap on the “play” button in the music player controls to pause or stop the currently playing music.

Tip: You can also use this method to control playback when you’re using other apps or when your iPhone is locked.

Method 2: Using the Music App

If you prefer using the Music app to turn off your iPhone’s music, here’s how:

  1. Open the Music app on your iPhone by tapping on its icon on your home screen.

  2. In the bottom-right corner of the Music app, tap on “Now Playing”. This will take you to the Now Playing screen where you can see information about what’s currently playing.

  3. In this screen, locate and tap on the “pause” button (represented by two vertical lines) to stop playback. The button will change from “pause” to “play” once the music is paused.

Note: If you’re using a streaming service like Apple Music, Spotify, or YouTube Music, you’ll need to use the respective app’s controls to stop playback.

Method 3: Using Siri

If you’re a fan of voice commands, you can use Siri to turn off the music on your iPhone. Just follow these steps:

  1. Activate Siri by pressing and holding the side button (iPhone X or newer) or the home button (older iPhone models).

  2. Once Siri is activated, say “Stop playing music” or “Pause the music” to stop playback.

Note: Make sure your iPhone is connected to the internet for Siri to work properly.
