Daily Tip: How to disable keyboard clicks when inputting text

If the clicking sound you hear when entering text on your iPhone iPad or iPod touch annoys you or in my case others around you, then there is an easy solution. Instead of turning the sound down or muting it completely, you can just disable the keyboard clicks.

  • Start off by selecting Settings
  • Then open up Sounds
  • Scroll down to the bottom of the page
  • Flick the toggle switch for Keyboard Clicks to Off

That is all there is to it. You can now type away to your hearts content without annoying yourself or those around you!

Daily Tip: How to disable keyboard clicks when inputting text


I often hear people on the train with the lock sounds turned on, not quite as annoying but almost there

I think this was the first thing I did when the AT&T salesman handed me my then-new iPhone 4 back in September of 2010. I hate those annoying little clicks.
