Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you accidentally muted your iPhone and couldn’t figure out how to unmute it? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! In this tutorial, we will walk you through the steps to unmute your iPhone and get your sound back.

Method 1: Using the Mute Switch

If you see an orange strip on the side of your iPhone, it means that the device is currently in silent mode. To unmute your iPhone using the mute switch, follow these steps:

  • Step 1: Locate the mute switch on the side of your iPhone. It is usually located above the volume buttons.
  • Step 2: Push the mute switch towards the screen of your iPhone. You will feel a slight vibration or hear a click sound, indicating that your iPhone is now unmuted.

If there is no orange strip visible and pushing the mute switch doesn’t work, there might be other settings causing this issue. In that case, try method 2 below.

Method 2: Using Control Center

If method 1 didn’t work for you, don’t worry! You can also unmute your iPhone using Control Center. Follow these steps:

  • Step 1: Swipe up from the bottom edge of your screen (or swipe down from the top-right corner on newer iPhones) to access Control Center.
  • Step 2: Look for the sound icon in Control Center. It looks like a speaker with sound waves coming out of it.
  • Step 3: If the sound icon has a line going through it, it means your iPhone is muted. Tap on the sound icon to unmute your iPhone.

By following these steps, you should be able to unmute your iPhone and restore the sound. If you are still facing issues with the sound, try restarting your iPhone or checking other sound-related settings.


In this tutorial, we have discussed two different methods to unmute your iPhone. Whether you prefer using the mute switch or Control Center, both methods are easy and effective.

Remember, being able to quickly unmute your iPhone can come in handy in various situations, such as when you want to receive important calls or enjoy your favorite music without interruptions. So, next time you find yourself in a muted state, simply follow the steps outlined above and regain control of your sound!
