Summary – Getting Rid of the Lock Sound on iPhone 14
- Tap Settings.
- Select Sounds & Haptics.
- Turn off Lock Sound.
The lock sound that you have turned off in the steps above is the one that you hear when you lock or unlock the iPhone.
There is not way to customize it so that you keep one of those sounds. This switch will simply turn it off completely.
Putting your iPhone into silent mode with the switch on the left side of the device will also turn off the lock sound, as well as most of the other sounds on your phone.
You aren’t able to change the iPhone lock sound, unfortunately. It can only be the option that you are currently hearing now.

For example, directly above the lock sound setting is one called “Keyboard Feedback.”
