If you’re sick of spam calls, here’s a handy feature on your iPhone that can help screen them out.
With the “Silence Unknown Callers” feature, your phone will send any call from a number that isn’t in your contacts straight to voicemail.
That way, you don’t have to worry about dealing with unwanted calls — and you can avoid accidentally picking up a call from a telemarketer.
When you turn on Silence Unknown Callers, your iPhone won’t make a sound or vibrate when you receive a call from an unknown number.
The call will go straight to voicemail, and you’ll see the number appear in your Recent Calls list.
Here’s how to set up the “Silence Unknown Callers” feature on your iPhone:
Step 1: Open your Settings app
Step 2: Scroll down to tap on “Phone”.
Step 3: Scroll down and tap on “Silence Unknown Callers”.
Step 4: Switch on “Silence Unknown Callers.”
That’s it! Your iPhone will still ring for the phone numbers you have saved in your Contacts list. You’ll also hear rings from people you’ve called or texted before.
Phone numbers you’ve recently received in an email or text message will also usually ring.
If you call an emergency number like 911, the “Silence Unknown Callers” feature will turn itself off for 24 hours as a precaution.
So, now you know how to set up the “Silence Unknown Callers” feature on your iPhone, which will help screen out spam calls.
This feature is available on all carriers and will send any call from a number that isn’t in your contacts straight to voicemail.
Enjoy your newfound peace and quiet!
