Numerous various sounds and effects that each indicate a different task are already incorporated into your iPhone. You’re undoubtedly already extremely accustomed to some sounds, like the iPhone’s opening ringtone or the sound your device produces when you lock the screen.

Through the Noises & Haptics area of the Settings programme, you may also modify the sounds that you hear on your smartphone. The annoying charging sound your gadget makes when you plug it in to charge, on the other hand, seems to be hard to change.

Since iPhone chargers are prone to malfunctioning, even while this sound is highly useful in letting you know your device is charging properly, it can be a little annoying when you’re attempting to prevent your phone from making any noise.

This can be problematic if you have young children or a partner who values sleep. Although the charging sound isn’t particularly loud, it can sound tremendous when played in an entirely silent space.

Fortunately, there is a trick you may do to prevent the charging sound from being made when you plug in your iPhone. Both your iPad and your iPhone will work with this approach. Start by following the directions listed below.

1. Put Your iPhone on Silent

The simplest solution to stop this is to switch your iPhone to Silent mode if you don’t want to hear the charging chime when you connect your lightning connection to your iPhone. When your phone informs you about something, the silent mode mutes all sound. It is the charging sound in this instance.

Put your iPhone in silent mode to stop the charging noise. The switch on the left side of your iPhone can be used for this. If the switch is orange, your iPhone is in silent mode and only vibrates when plugged in, if vibrate is turned on. Your iPhone will now vibrate instead of making a sound when it is charging.

You must completely disable this option in settings if you don’t want anything to happen while you charge your iPhone, not even for it to vibrate.

You must navigate to Settings > Sounds & Haptics in order to disable the buzzing noise that you experience when your iPhone is in silent mode. When you arrive, scroll down to the bottom and deactivate System Haptics. There it is. From this point forward, your iPhone won’t chirp or buzz when you plug it in to charge.

2. Open the Camera To Stop The Noise

1. Plug in your charger as usual, but wait a moment before connecting it to your iPhone or iPad.

2. To access the Camera application on your iPhone or iPad, swipe left. From the Homescreen, you can also launch your camera application.

3. Connect the charger to your iPhone or iPad after the camera has been opened.

4. Check to see if your device is charging by observing the charging icon in the top right of the status bar. You’ll notice that when you plugged in your charger, there was no customary buzzing sound.

5. After making sure that your device is truly charging, shut down the camera application and let it continue to do so normally.

Now that your charger is plugged in, you can quickly charge your device without having to deal with the obnoxious buzzing sound that it normally makes. You may relax knowing that your husband and kids can now snooze peacefully. However, everytime you use this technique, please make careful to check to see if your device is actually charging.

Although annoying, the buzzing sound was designed to alert you to a functioning phone and charging cord. Without the sound, pay attention to the little lightning-bolt icon that appears in the right-hand corner of the screen. After making sure your iPhone or iPad is charging properly, switch off the display using the standard Sleep/Wake button.

It’s possible that you were successful in keeping those kids asleep, but you don’t want to wake up to discover that they’ve taken a tonne of images since you left the camera application open.

3. Play Music on Spotify or Apple Music While Plugging in Cable

If you wish to do something to prevent the plug-in tune from playing, you can listen to music on your Spotify or Apple Music player. This is how to accomplish it:

1. Access your home page.

2. Launch Apple Music or Spotify.

3. Scroll until you come upon a song or playlist you like.

4. Start it playing and leave the app open while it plays.

5. Plug in your phone without worry; the sound shouldn’t interfere with or overpower the music you’ve chosen.

You can play over the sound with a music or audio programme like Spotify or Apple Music, and if done correctly, you shouldn’t be able to hear it at all.

4. Use Videos on Apps Like Instagram, YouTube, and Facebook Whilst Plugging In

While you put your phone into an outlet, you can also utilise video apps like Instagram, Youtube, Facebook, and TikTok to play music in the background. Here’s how to go about it;

1. Access the Home Screen.

2. Launch any video-playing app, such as Instagram, YouTube, Facebook, or another one.

3. Tap a video link on your feed.

Allow it to play.

5. Connect your phone, and the video will continue to play over the speakers.

This should successfully prevent you from hearing that sound while your iPhone is being charged or plugged in.

5. Turn Off Your iPhone Then Plug It In

Turning off your phone before plugging it in is one definite way to stop the sound from playing. You should be good to go if you simply tap and hold on the power off button on the right side of your phone and slide the slider labelled “power off” once it appears. It shouldn’t make any noise at this point.

6. Connect Bluetooth Speaker While Plugging in So Sound Comes Out of Headphones and Not iPhone Speaker

Instead of having it play through the iPhone speaker, you may pair it with a bluetooth speaker and have it play through your headphones. The following describes how to pair your iPhone with a bluetooth headset:

1. Use the home screen to access settings.

2. Scroll until Bluetooth appears. Toggle this.

3. Slide the button until it turns green; Bluetooth should now be turned on.

4. The following list contains the gadgets that can connect to your phone. Pick one of these.

5. The Bluetooth speaker will now be used to play the plug-in sound instead of the iPhone speaker.

7. Put Fingers Over Speaker When Plugging In to Muffle Sound

While you’re connecting it back in, you can block off the sound by placing your fingers over the speaker. This will mute the sound and make it less audible so that you won’t have to listen to it.

At the bottom of the phone, where you can see a few embedded dots, is where the speaker is positioned. The best approach to block the sound is to cover these with your phone.


There are various ways to silence, muffle, or simply play over the sound when your phone is plugged in.

None of the capabilities that the iPhone has to help you silence the sound or find ways to override it can be found in settings, so you frequently have to find odd workarounds like playing music or muzzling the speakers to keep it quiet in a scenario where a loud alert is unnecessary. There must be a way to solve this, right?

It is hoped that Apple will ultimately release a setting to address the problem where the iPhone constantly tells the user that it is plugged in and charging. Sometimes it’s just a little bit unneeded and overly loud.
