Hate receiving spam calls and messages? Don’t worry! We will help you silence all the unknown calls that you receive on your phone. You can easily block numbers that are unknown to you, which means they are not saved in your contacts list. If you are using iOS, you can easily get rid of these annoying calls.
Apple has always taken care of its users’ safety and security. This is why the tech giant has introduced numerous features. However, most of them remain unnoticed. The Silence Unknown Callers is one such feature that many people are not aware of. Here, you will get every detail about the feature and how you can activate it.
Remember that if you have previously contacted a person using texts or email, a call from that person can pass through it. The silence unknown caller feature works when you haven’t contacted a person using the phone number or when the phone number is not saved in your contact list. This feature silences the unknown number when they call you, giving you relief from spam calls. You will only get the voice mail, and you can also see the number in the recent call list of your iPhone.
How to Silence Unknown Callers on iPhone
Follow these simple steps to activate the Silence Unknown Caller feature on your iPhone.
Go to the Settings option of your iPhone
Tap on the Phone option.
Scroll down and click on the Silence Unknown Callers option.
Turn on the Silence Unknown Caller feature.
Activate the feature and get rid of those unknown calls.
Now, you will receive calls that are only saved in your contact list, and recent call lists, from Siri Suggestions. However, if you receive an emergency call, the feature will be deactivated for the next 24 hours. This makes your phone to be available for attending the emergency calls.
While this built-in call blocking/silencing option on iPhones is great, it doesn’t let you customize certain things. But, you can download a third-party app from the app store to get more features. With some third-party apps, you can also block calls from select users and even customize the blocking lists as per your needs. One such third-party app is TrueCaller.
