Looking to permanently block a phone number on the iPhone? Apple has added this built-in functionality to iOS 7 and later. Contacts and numbers on your iOS block list will be prevented from contacting you with phone calls, iMessages, SMS text messages or FaceTime.
Rejecting an incoming call on the iPhone only takes one tap. The red Decline button immediately stops ringing on the other end of the line and starts your voicemail greeting. But there's a way to let the iPhone ring on silently, so the caller believes you're away or too busy to answer.
Unwanted spam calls have been flooding mobile devices across the country. The wave of telemarketers and unknown Caller ID incoming calls continues despite iPhone owners trying to block numbers or install robocall detection apps. With iOS 13 and later, Apple has made it easier to prevent unwanted calls.
One of the best things about AirPods is keeping your iPhone stowed away in a pocket or bag. Between Siri and tap gestures, the AirPods can handle many common tasks. Incoming calls can interrupt music and podcasts, but even worse- the iPhone must come out to see who's calling. However, there's a way around this first-world problem.
Blocking a phone number on iPhone makes it easy to avoid unwanted calls. But how can one begin accepting calls from a number that has already been blocked? Maybe you've buried the hatchet with an old enemy, or accidentally blocked your mother-in-law's phone number. Unblocking a contact on iPhone will restore incoming calls from that number immediately.
