Below are three easy ways to disable the keyboard clicks on an iPad tablet among other features. The default keyboard on iOS 8 is ideal for typing anything on the iPad, but makes click sounds upon key press. However, you can type down quietly on the iOS keyboard using any of the below workarounds to turn off the default sound.
Using Volume Controls
Simply slide up from below the iPad home screen to launch Control Centre on the device. Then, you can use the volume slider shortcut to put the iOS device in silent mode. While using volume controls lets you disable keyboard click sounds, choosing this option would make the whole device to go silent. Thus, you might need another method to turn off the keyboard click sounds only.
Using the iOS Settings
The ideal way to disable the keyboard clicks sound on an iPad is through the iOS Settings. Navigate to Settings > Sounds, and tap on Keyboard Clicks. Set the toggle for Keyboard Clicks to Off position and you are good to go. This way, you can turn off keyboard sounds only and ensure that the other iOS app notifications and music volume stays turned on.
Using the Side Switch
Some of the older generation iPads have the side switch just above the volume buttons on the right-hand corner of the device. In fact, the side switch can actually let you perform two tasks, one is locking and unlocking the screen rotation, and the other, muting and un-muting the iPad, provided that you have configured the same on your device.
In case, the side switch is set to lock rotation only, then you should open the Settings app on iOS 8 to change the same. For that, go to Settings, tap on General, and choose Mute below Use Side Switch To section.
You can now mute the iPad as you changed the side switch to facilitate the same and avoid keyboard click sounds. When you need to lock or unlock the screen rotation, navigate to the same path on iOS 8 and choose Lock Rotation instead of Mute in the Use Side Switch To section.
