How to block spam calls on your iPhone?

The phenomenon of random calls has spread, which is for the purpose of creating a fraud process in the future of communication, or with the aim of marketing a product, without the prior permission of the owner of the line to communicate.

With the increase in this phenomenon, the annoyance of mobile phone users increased, to the extent that the Google search engine witnessed a noticeable increase with the question “How do I block random calls?”.

There are several ways you can thwart spam calls on your iPhone.

Use the “Silence Unknown Callers” feature

You can take advantage of Silence Unknown Callers or Silence Unknown Callers to keep annoying callers away. It is a feature that blocks numbers that have not called you before, and it also blocks people who are not saved in your contact list.

  • To activate this feature on the iPhone, go to “Settings”, then “Phone”, then turn on “Silence Unknown Callers”.

Use the “Silence Unwanted Callers” feature

Silence Junk Callers will do the same thing, but it is available depending on the carrier that serves the phone.

Use third-party apps to filter bot calls

There are plenty of third-party apps that you can use to block spam calls and one of the most popular apps that iPhone users are interested in is Truecaller.

  • Download TrueCaller from the Apple App Store and launch it.
  • Press Next several times to complete the setup slideshow.
  • Click Get Started.
  • Follow the instructions for turning on all TrueCaller toggles via the Settings app.
