2. Tap on Edit.
3. Tap on the yellow speaker icon. It will become gray.
4. Finally, tap on Done to save the video without the sound.
Tip: Changed your mind and want to get the sound back? Tap Edit > Revert > Revert to Original.
How to Remove Sound From Entire iPhone Video or Only the Selected Parts Using iMovie
The benefit of using iMovie to remove sound from video is that it lets you remove audio not only from the entire video but also from selected portions of the video. For example, if you want to keep the audio but mute the portion with cuss words, iMovie lets you do that. Plus, it also enables you to decrease the audio level instead of completely muting it.
Remove Sound From the Entire Video Using iMovie
1. Download iMovie for free from the App Store and open it.
2. Tap on the plus icon > Movie.
3. Select the video file. For ease, you may tap on Media from the top right and then tap on Video.
4. Select the video clip and tap on Create Movie. The clip will be added to the iMovie editing timeline.
5. Tap on the clip to select it. You will see a yellow border highlighting it. Next, tap the speaker icon and drag it all the way to the left.
Note: You may also set it to any other level like 25% or 50% if you do not want to mute it entirely.
6. Tap on Done > Share icon.
7. Finally, tap on Save Video to save the muted clip in the iPhone Photos app.
How to Remove Audio From a Selected Portion of the Video on iPhone
1. Download and open iMovie. Next, tap on the plus icon > Movie.
2. Select the video file and tap on Create Movie.
3. Tap on the clip to select it. You will see a yellow border around it. Next, we will split the portion that you wish to mute. For this, drag the video clip horizontally, and you will see a white vertical divider. Tap on the scissors icon > Split. Now, your video is split into two parts. You may split it further into smaller parts.
4. Tap on the small clip that you want to mute. Now, this will have a yellow border, and other parts of the clip won’t.
5. Tap on the speaker icon and drag the slider to the right.
6. Tap on Done > Share icon to save the video.

4. Now, drag the volume slider to 0% and tap on the checkmark icon.

If you use Telegram (or similar apps), you might see an option to remove sound from the video while sending it to someone. The benefit of using this method is that you are not required to do anything beforehand. Just mute the video sound while sending, straight from the Telegram app.
1. Open Telegram and go inside a conversation.

Remove Sound From iPhone Video Using AudioRemover
We already discussed all the offline and quick ways to mute a video on iPhone. Finally, you have one more option, and that is using online websites.
