iOS 13 brings a lot of great features to the iPhone, but there’s one setting that hasn’t been talked about a lot at the keynote presentation. It’s a shame, since it is a real quality-of-life improvement to those that suffer from robocalls (so, basically all of us).
Silence Unknown Callers to Stop Robocalls
- Tap the “Settings” app
- Tap the “Phone” section
- Turn on “Silence Unknown Callers”
What does this setting do?
If a number — that is not in your contacts — calls your phone, your phone will not ring. The number will still show in your recent call history and the caller can still leave a voicemail.
What if my doctor’s office calls from a different number?
The caller can still leave a voicemail, so if it’s important, hopefully the caller will leave a message. Or, you can temporarily turn this feature off if you’re expecting an important call.
