Silence Unknown Spam Calls on iPhone
Unknown or Spam Calls on your iPhone are most likely to be from telemarketers or automated robocalls trying to figure out the ideal time to call you.
While you can deal with such unknown spam calls by ignoring them, a better way to deal with spam calls is to activate “Silence Unknown Callers” feature as available on your iPhone.
Once this feature is activated on your iPhone, all unknown spam calls will be automatically diverted to the voicemail on your iPhone.
The best part of this feature is that your iPhone won’t even ring or vibrate, whenever an unknown call is received. It will only ring or vibrate when a known caller calls or messages you.
Later on, you can check your Voicemail to make sure that genuine callers are not being blocked.
This way you won’t be distracted by ringing or flashing on your phone, every time an unwanted call is received on your device.
