Both the Apple Watch and iPhone support silent mode – a feature that mutes all incoming notification sounds to stop awkward situations in certain predicaments, like a ringtone going off within the middle of sophistication or disturbing participants during a peace conference. Unfortunately, this handy feature doesn’t stay in sync between both devices, necessitating manual input for every.
This is a controversy that a newly released jailbreak tweak called WatchMuteMirror by iOS developer Cardboard Face aims to resolve. As you’ll have inferred already from the tweak’s name, WatchMuteMirror keeps silent mode in sync between your iPhone and your Apple Watch in order that the latter doesn’t make a bunch of noise even after you toggle the mute turn on the side of your iPhone.
Indeed, this is often a straightforward case of ‘why didn’t Apple think about that?’ And it’s a very important one too. After all, if I used to be visiting toggle silent my iPhone for a selected purpose, then why would I would like my Apple Watch to announce incoming notifications loud and clear? I’d much rather address the subtle tap on my wrist or check back on my notifications later after I’ve disabled silent mode.

Here, you can:
- Toggle WatchMuteMirror on or off
- Toggle tweak alerts on or off
- Mirror your iPhone’s muted status to Apple Watch after flipping the silent switch
- Mirror your iPhone’s muted status to Apple Watch after every lock/unlock
Because the Apple Watch uses short-range Bluetooth to speak along with your iPhone, it will be easy to run far from your handset and lose connection. during this case, the tweak would be unable to send a silent mode signal to your iPhone, and that’s why the latter two options exist.
The ability to mirror silent mode when toggling the silent switch or when locking/unlocking the handset ensures that the most recent silent mode state is synced to your Apple Watch while it’s in range in any respect times. This way, the mirroring should be dead-on.
Jailbreakers who would really like to boost the Apple Watch user experience should purchase WatchMuteMirror from the Packix repository for just $0.99 via their preferred package manager. The tweak supports to jailbreak iOS 13 devices and clearly requires an Apple Watch to be used.
