Manage incoming calls in iOS
LEARN HOW TO POLITELY RESPOND TO KNOWN CALLERS AND REBUFF UNWANTED ONES.
RECEIVING A CALL or a message from a friend can bring a smile to your face, but all too often it seems to happen at the least convenient moment. Just as you’re carrying groceries home, rushing to catch a train, or getting tangled up as your overexcited dog runs circles around you, your iPhone rings.
That‘s when you need a quick way to respond without having to pick up a call just to say “May I call you back?” Thankfully, your iPhone offers options to help you deal with scenarios like these.
The kind of calls that are truly aggravating are when you can and do respond, only to find out the caller is someone you really don’t have time for. You know the type: scammers who use social engineering tricks to make you think your bank account is at risk.
Your iPhone also provides a way to block unwanted callers and texters after they have called you. It also provides hooks for third-party apps to enhance caller ID, enabling them to tip you off about suspected scammers.
Here we’ll show you how to use all these capabilities so you can deal with incoming calls more appropriately.
