The Messages application, installed by default on your iPhone, like other messaging apps, plays sounds when we interact with it. One of the most common and at the same time most annoying sounds can be that of sending messages. When we write a message and it is sent through the iPhone Messages application, by default it will emit a sound similar to: “Woops”.

Fortunately, the iOS operating system allows iPhone owners to completely disable these types of sounds so that they do not play with each message we send. Contrary to what we might think, to carry out this configuration it will not be necessary to perform Jailbreak, since now this customization is available by default.
Apple has taken a step forward when it comes to customizing aspects and functions of its iOS devices; aspect that many users claim above all with the comparison with Android devices. Well now iPhone owners can enable or disable the sounds of sending messages in the default app.
The multi-step process required to disable the sending sound on your iPhone is detailed below. It’s a bit complicated, but if you follow the steps mentioned in the guide, you can finally get rid of the annoying sound from the Messages app on your iPhone:
1. How to deactivate all message sounds in the iPhone Messages App
Because the iPhone does not distinguish between outgoing sounds and incoming messages, we must first disable all sounds associated with messages.
1) Open the Settings app and select the option “Sounds and Vibrations“.
2) On the next screen, click on “Text tone“to open the interface that allows you to change the sounds of the messages.
3) Now in the list of Warning Tones, you will have to check the option “None“. This will not disable vibrations, but will disable sound for all contacts.
2. Re-enable incoming message alerts
If we just mute the messages completely, this is not much help. If this were the only solution, it wouldn’t be much better than the option to completely silence your iPhone.
Therefore, if we want only sent messages to be deactivated and not received messages, we must re-enable incoming message alerts, for which you will have to configure personal text tones for each contact in your iPhone contact guide. Unfortunately the only way to do this is manually. The best way to prioritize contacts is to check your recent text message list. Fortunately, as long as vibration is on, you will receive at least one tactile alert.
To set custom text tones for your most important contacts, follow the instructions below:
1) Open the “Phone” app.
2) Click on the “Contacts” section at the bottom.
3) Select the contact you want to edit.
4) On the next page where the contact details are displayed, click on the “Edit” button in the upper right corner.
5) Here you will have to click on the option “SMS Tone”.
6) Select the tone you want to hear when an incoming message arrives and press the “OK” option to confirm it.
This will only play on incoming messages from this particular contact. It will not affect other contacts and it will not affect the sound effect of your outgoing message.
7) Finally, click on the “OK” option again to save your changes and Done.
