By default, when you tap a key using the iPhone's built-in virtual keyboard the device makes a "tapping" noise. This is to mimic the sounds that you would here if you were using a real keyboard with the device. If these sounds aren't to your liking, you can enter the iPhone's "Settings" application and change both their volume as well as whether or not you hear them at all.
