    I just bought an iPad Air and I was wondering if it was possible to create a button on my screen to mute?
    I'm aware of the drop down from the top right where I can slide the volume control to 0 and the physical volume buttons, but I'd like a one button solution.

    Is there a native way to do it or a 3rd party app that will allow me to create a button like that...?

    Perhaps a shortcut?

    What about switching the iPad to "Do not disturb" mode? How digitalexplr stated, maybe you can find a shortcut for that.

    From my experience, before Siri reacts it is faster to turn it off manually. :D

    What could be easier than just holding the volume down button on the side?

    This is what I do.

    It’s probably going to be faster than being surprised at a loud noise, having to search for the mute button, then muting it.

    Or just hold the home button.

    What about the assistive touch home button? You can sign a Siri shortcut to that. Shortcut can mute the sounds?
