Unable to silence my iPhone when taking photos

South Korea requires camera phone manufacturers to have their devices make loud noises when pictures and video are taken. It’s specifically to prevent people from taking pictures without others knowing. Being from the US, this was a surprise to me. I don’t object to this, as it seems like a good idea, in general BUT it is super annoying when taking screenshots, when the loud camera sound also goes off.
