This mute switch is located at the upper left of iPhone 8. You can move down to turn iPhone’ s sound until turn on the silent switch. Then you will feel the iPhone vibrate and the button will show an orange stripe. But please note that it will also mute all notifications, incoming calls, and other alerts.

Turn down the Volume
Turning down the volume is another easy way to turn off the camera shutter sound. But if you do this in the camera app, your iPhone will be in burst mode when you start taking pictures.
