Hello again, sorry to be annoying. @omz stated in this post that you could take a picture without the sound, but the quality would not be as good. I don't care about the quality, so could you put that please?
Also, if that doesn't work, how do I mute the device? Is there a way to mute the ringer programatically, and then put it back? I don't want to mess up anybody's system, but I need to get rid of this sound somehow. I don't want to just mute the volume, I want to mute the ringer.
Sorry for being annoying, again. I was just trying to combine two of my old questions to get a better answer. Hopefully somebody can help me. Thanks
@NoBetterName To be honest, I thought it would be easier to do this than it seems to be. It looks like you'd actually need to capture a short video sequence (which doesn't trigger the shutter sound), and then extract the still image from the video somehow, but I'm not sure about the details, and the code would probably be quite different from that for still images.
As for muting the ringer programmatically, I believe that's not possible at all, but I could be wrong. At the very least, there is no straight-forward way to do this, and it would actually be weird if it worked, because the mute switch is mechanical on iPhones (so if muting the device programmatically was possible, the switch would be in the wrong state).
