The iPhone has been around for several years now and, being one of the most popular mobile phones ever created, most people have either used, seen, or been around iPhones long enough to know a bit about them. One of the most distinctive elements of the iPhone are its notification sounds. Some of them have remained largely unchanged for a while, and many people can tell what you have just done on your iPhone based off of what they hear.
One of the distinctive iPhone sounds is the “swoosh” that occurs when you send an email. But if you are sending a lot of emails from your iPhone over the course of a day, especially in a public setting, then you may have grown tired of hearing that sound. Our article below will show you how to find the setting that controls the swoosh sound so that you can turn it off.

Step 3: Scroll down and choose the Sent Mail option.
