We all know how embarrassing it is to have loud camera sound when taking pictures in quiet public places like conference rooms, libraries, recitals, and exhibition halls. Or sometimes you just want to steal a cozy scene of a little baby sleeping, but the shutter sound will ruin the moment.
Why does the camera sound still ring when iPhone is in silent mode? Is there any way to disable shutter sound on iPhone? If you want to know how to turn off camera sound on iPhone or disable screenshot sound on iPhone, then you've come to the right place! This article will tell you the answer.
Part 1: Why can't I turn off camera sound on iPhone?
In some countries and regions such as Japan and South Korea, all cameras are mandated to make shutter sound when taking photos due to the existing laws that do not allow camera sound to be turned off when taking photos.
Therefore, the phones sold in these countries/regions are also set to always trigger the shutter sound. Both Android phones and iPhones have hard-coded camera sounds on each phone, and it is likewise impossible to turn off the camera sound when taking pictures with the camera app.
If you live in one of these countries that prohibit camera silence, or if you use an iPhone purchased from one of these countries, then I'm sorry to tell you that you cannot disable the camera sound and the shutter sound will always be triggered when you take a picture. That's why some iPhones (such as Japanese iPhone and Korean iPhone) can't turn off the camera sound even in silent mode.
Part 2: What countries/regions can't disable camera sound on iPhone?
According to Japan's "Prevention of Nuisance Ordinance", it is prohibited to turn off the shutter sound to protect personal privacy. Even though phones sold in Japan are set to silent mode, the sound of the camera shutter will still sound when taking pictures to prevent clandestine photography, voyeurism and stalking.
Similarly, Korea, which is close to Japan, has a similar law that prohibits turning off the sound of the camera when taking pictures to prevent taking inappropriate or private pictures of others without their knowledge.
If you are someone who cares more about the camera sound when taking pictures, then it is recommended that you try not to buy the Japanese or Korean version of iPhone. However, due to the price advantage, many people buy Apple devices such as iPhone or iPad when they travel to Japan or Korea because sometimes the Japanese or Korean version of iPhone is really a few hundred dollars cheaper.
