Your iPhone has a number of settings that somewhat replicate the experience of using a computer. Since iPhone typing is performed on a touch screen, there are no physical keys to provide a response to key presses. The iPhone attempts to reproduce this feeling by playing a sound as you type a letter on the keyboard.
While this may be beneficial to some users, others could find it to be distracting, or even an annoyance. Fortunately it is a setting that you can adjust. Our tutorial below will show you where to find it.

- The Lock Sounds option above it refers to the sound that you hear when you manually lock your iPhone by pressing the Power button on the side of the device.
- The rest of the keyboard settings that you may want to adjust can be found by going to Settings > General > Keyboard.
- Additional settings for your text messages app can be found at Settings > Messages.
