Your iPhone gives you a lot of audio feedback when you are using it. There are sounds associated with new phone calls, messages and notifications, and there are sounds that play when you perform certain actions. One of these actions involves locking your iPhone screen to turn it off, which plays a sound that sounds somewhat like a door being locked.
This sound can be pretty loud, however, and you may find it to be more annoying than helpful. Our guide below will show you where to find the setting that controls this sound so that you can silence the lock sounds on your device.

Step 3: Scroll to the bottom of this menu and tap the button to the right of Lock Sounds to turn it off. The setting is turned off when the button is in the left position, and there is no green around it. Lock sounds are turned off in this picture.
