India has a huge problem with spam calls and anyone with a SIM card in India is likely to get a few unsolicited calls from people trying to sell credit cards, offering personal loans or even promising strange promises when you invest in the stock market. If you’ve encountered this problem, you’ll be happy with a new iOS 13 feature that can block all unknown callers in one fell swoop. Yes, this iOS 13 feature mutes calls from all unknown numbers. It’s an extreme option, but one that can help you a lot if annoying telemarketers keep calling you.
This option is great because it is built into iOS. You don’t have to use third-party apps and pay with your privacy in exchange for peace of mind. According to Apple, with this setting enabled, iOS 13 will use Siri’s intelligence to transfer calls to your phone from numbers in the Contacts, Mail, and Messages apps on your device – in other words, calls from people you are in have participated in the past will still come through even if you have not saved their number. All other calls are automatically sent to your voicemail.
It is also reasonable to recognize that this method is not ideal for everyone. For example, if you are waiting for a job opening or expect important calls from unknown numbers, this method is not for you. However, if you are sick from unsolicited phone calls, read on.
Before we go to the steps, you should know that this feature only works with iOS 13 and not with older versions of iOS.
