Disable keyboard sound on iPhone and iPad
On an iPhone and iPad, Apple makes it easy to turn off the keyboard sound.
To do that, first launch Settings on your device. Then select Sounds & Haptics > Keyboard Feedback.
On older iPhones and iPads, you’ll select “Sounds.”
On the “Keyboard Feedback” page, uncheck the “Sounds” option. This disables the sound that plays when you press a key.
On older iPhones and iPads, it will simply disable the “Keyboard Clicks” option.
From now on, your keyboard will remain silent when you use it to type something.
