The Apple Watch is a versatile and powerful wearable device that offers a plethora of features to its users. One such feature is Silent Mode, which allows you to mute all incoming notifications and calls without turning off your watch entirely.
Enabling Silent Mode is useful in situations where you need to maintain peace and quiet or avoid any distractions. Conversely, disabling Silent Mode ensures that you receive audible alerts and notifications as usual.
If you’re using an Apple Watch Series 8, Ultra, 7, 6, or 5, here’s a guide on how to enable or disable Silent Mode
How To Enable & Disable Silent Mode On Apple Watch
Method 1: Using the Apple Watch’s Control Center
Start by raising your wrist or tapping the screen of your Apple Watch to wake it up.
While on the watch face, swipe up from the bottom of the screen to access the Control Center.
Look for the Silent Mode icon, which is represented by a bell icon crossed out with a diagonal line. Tap on this icon to enable Silent Mode.
If you’d like to disable silent mode, you can follow the above instructions and then tap on the silent mode icon to turn it off. The bell icon will appear normal, without being highlighted.
Method 2: Using the Settings App on Apple Watch
