  • To turn off silent mode and turn on ring mode, flip this switch once to make the orange hue disappear.
  • You’re ready to go now that your iPhone is in ring mode. Disable iPhone Silent Mode

  • Click on “AssistiveTouch.”

  • Tap “Device” in the menu that comes up.
  • Tap “Unmute” in the “Device” menu to turn off the silent mode on your iPhone.
  • Your iPhone is now no longer on silent. You can now close the box and, if you want, turn off AssistiveTouch.

Use Shortcut

Tap the back two or three times to enable and turn off silent mode on an iPhone 8 or later running iOS 14 or later. Setting > Accessibility > Touch > Back Tap and selecting an option activates this feature.

On older iPhones, tapping the AssistiveTouch symbol toggles the silent mode. Visit Settings > General > Accessibility > AssistiveTouch and tap “Single-Tap,” “Double-Tap,” or “Long Press,” depending on your preference. Choose “Mute.”

That’s how you quickly exit iPhone silent mode. Easy, right?
