iPhone: how to block calls from strangers
Muting calls from unknown numbers on iPhone is child’s play. All that needs to be done is:
- From the Home screen of the device, access the settings (gray icon with gears);
- Locate and select the item “Telephone”;
- Select the item “Silence unknown numbers” to access the setting tab;
- Tap the switch next to “Silence unknown numbers” to activate the setting.
Thanks to this, any call from an anonymous number will not ring the phone, but will be automatically forwarded to the answering machine. Calls from people in contacts, people in recent outgoing calls, and Siri suggestions will continue to be received. Furthermore, if you change your mind about the setting, you can go back to the “Silence unknown numbers” page and deactivate it at any time.
