Summary – Getting Rid of the Lock Sound on an iPhone 14
- Select Settings.
- Choose Sounds & Haptics.
- Disable the Lock Sound.
The lock sound that you disabled in the preceding steps is the one that you hear when you lock or unlock the iPhone.
There is no way to change it so that one of those noises remains. This setting simply disables it entirely.
Using the switch on the left side of your iPhone to enter silent mode disables the lock sound as well as the majority of the other sounds on your phone.
Unfortunately, you cannot adjust the iPhone lock sound. It can only be the choice you’re hearing right now.

The lock sound on your iPhone 14 is one of several sounds that you can disable on the device.
If you don’t want to keep your iPhone silent and would rather personalize the numerous sounds that you hear on the device, you should look through the Sounds & Haptics menu to see what else you can change.
Directly above the lock sound setting, for example, is one labeled “Keyboard Feedback.”
When you open that menu, you may customize the noises and haptic feedback you hear while composing text messages or emails.
