The iPhone can be silenced with one switch. The upper left hand corner of the iPhone has two volume buttons and a sliding switch. This sliding switch is the ring/silent switch.

Sounds and Ringtones
Apple surprised iPhone X owners with an exclusive iPhone X-only ringtone named Reflection. The new tone has been described as an update to Marimba, the original iPhone ringtone first launched in 2007. Of course, an exclusive is only temporary. Once the ringtone is publicly released the genie doesn't go back in the bottle.
The iPhone xylophone ringtone can be found in the Settings app under Sounds > Ringtone > Classic. A lot of iPhone users believe it is a familiar sound, perhaps from a TV show or movie. The most popular theory is that the ringtone resembles a song from the American Beauty score. The song most people are referring to is Thomas Newman's "Any Other Name" which you can hear in the YouTube video below.
