The iPhone 15 Pros are rumored to swap the current mechanical mute switch for a button, plus ditch the separate volume buttons for a single rocker-style control.
Easily get into Safe Mode on a jailbroken iPhone with SafeModeMuteToggle
Sometimes one of the most useful ways to troubleshoot a problem on a jailbroken device is to enter Safe Mode and use it to remove a conflicting jailbreak tweak or add-on. The only problem, however, is that entering Safe Mode doesn’t seem as straightforward as it once used to be.
How to mute your iPhone if the physical silent switch is broken or not working
You can put your iPhone in silent mode or vibrate-only mode even if the physical ring/silent switch on the left side of your device isn't working or is broken. We show you how.
This tweak mirrors your iPhone’s silent mode status to your Apple Watch
Both the Apple Watch and iPhone support silent mode – a feature that mutes all incoming notification sounds to prevent awkward situations in certain predicaments, such as a ringtone going off in the middle of class or disturbing participants during a work conference. Unfortunately, this handy feature doesn’t stay in sync between both devices, necessitating manual input for each.
This is a problem that a newly released jailbreak tweak called WatchMuteMirror by iOS developer Cardboard Face aims to resolve. As you may have inferred already from the tweak’s name, WatchMuteMirror keeps silent mode in sync between your iPhone and your Apple Watch so that the latter doesn’t make a bunch of noise even after you toggle the mute switch on the side of your iPhone.
2019 iPhones similar to 2018 models in many ways sans an iPad-like circular Mute switch
New renderings of the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max successors due this September depict negligibly thicker devices with a redesigned circular Mute switch within a pill-shaped cutout, plus a large triple-lens camera bump integrated into the real glass and more.
EnableCCMute enables the hidden mute toggle in Control Center
It seems like Apple is hiding some pretty useful functionality from us in the iOS 10 Control Center that might remain hidden until a future release of iOS, such as a toggle for recording your screen and a toggle for Low Power Mode, but from the looks of things, it doesn’t end there.
If you have an iPad, then you're probably familiar with the Mute toggle that appears in Control Center, which it's not present on other iOS devices despite still existing in the system. A new free jailbreak tweak called EnableCCMute by iKilledAppl3 enables this hidden toggle on all jailbroken iOS 10 devices.
Leak: claimed iPhone 7 chassis, SIM tray and mute button in Space Black
It's still unclear if Apple's rumored new iPhone 7 colorway will be a dark blue variant, as first suggested by Japanese blog Mac Otakara, or an Apple Watch-like Space Black. Today, Carrier China Unicom published an iPhone 7 teaser image on Facebook indicating Deep Blue colorway but now a more credible source has come forward with shots of claimed iPhone 7 components in a hue which appears markedly darker than Space Gray.
Crisp iPhone 7 Plus snaps show Smart Connector and, confusingly, no Mute switch
The industry-standard 3.5mm headphone jack may not be the only widely-used feature that is thought to be on the chopping block for the next iPhone. A new batch of high-resolution photographs that surfaced last evening appear to show off a larger 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus model that doesn't seem to have the Mute switch on its side.
The photos were posted by French bog NowhereElse. The same publication released a set of images yesterday that gave us the clearest look yet at the iPhone 7's subdued antenna lines.
How to prevent your iPhone from vibrating when it’s on mute
Toggling the ringer switch on your iPhone is not enough to make it completely silent: the phone will still be quite noisy when it vibrates as you receive a notification or a call.
According to Apple, in ring mode, your iPhone plays all sounds, and in silent mode, it doesn’t ring or play alerts and other sound effects, but it'll still vibrate. So, if your iPhone is kept on the office table during a meeting, its incoming call or text vibration is sure to buzz the room.
Thankfully, you can change this behavior and prevent your iPhone from vibrating when it’s silenced. Here's how.
How to use the iPhone’s mute switch as a Do Not Disturb switch
SwitcherDND is a new jailbreak tweak that just arrived on Cydia. It allows you to replace the mute switch's functionality with that of a Do Not Disturb switch. If you use Do Not Disturb often like I do, then you may want to give this free jailbreak tweak a spin.
Photos of alleged iPhone 5S SIM tray and various buttons
Although we won't likely see a new iPhone at WWDC next week, it is on the way. The handset is reportedly scheduled to go into production this month, and is expected to be unveiled during a September or October event.
We know little about the device, believed to be the iPhone 5S, outside of the fact that it is going to look like its predecessor. We have seen a number of minor part leaks though, with a few more turning up this morning...
Make sure your iPhone keeps quiet with The Mutator
The behavior of the iPhone's Mute switch has long been a topic of debate. While switching it off will silence most of the handset's sounds, it won't keep alarms and other system functions quiet, which as you can imagine can make for some embarrassing moments.
And that's where the Mutator comes in. The tiny accessory fits in your iPhone's headphone jack, and promises to ease your mind when in meetings, movie theaters and other 'please silence your cell phone' situations by ensuring your handset won't make a sound...
