If you don’t receive too many spam calls or you simply prefer to use your iPhone hands-free, you can have it automatically answer incoming phone calls on your behalf. Here’s how to set up and use the Auto-Answer Calls option.
Wireless carrier T-Mobile on Friday announced a pair of new anti-scam features aimed at blocking robocalls and scam calls on your iPhone or other smartphone. Called Scam ID and Scam Block, the new tools were designed to either automatically block incoming calls identified by the system as scam (Scam Block) or warn you that a call is coming from a mobile phone number possibly related to spammers (Scam ID).
With a new free toolbox-like jailbreak tweak called Phone Tools by Justin Petkovic, you can customize your Phone app’s user interface to your liking by disabling and/or removing the features you could care less about.
Apple improved the Phone app extensively in iOS 10 by including a new API that third-party developers can use to integrate their App Store apps with calling functionality into it, such as those like Skype or WhatsApp, just to name a couple.
On the other hand, there’s still more that can be done to improve the Phone app, and a new jailbreak tweak release by Olxios&Nico called RecentCalls+ is a step in the right direction.
we recently showed you a jailbreak tweak called QuickDial Lite, which allowed you to add speed dial-like features to the iPhone’s Phone app. The same developer has now just launched QuickDial Pro, which takes advantage of new features in the latest iPhones to make the tweak even cooler.
There are some notable differences between the free and paid versions of this jailbreak tweak, and we’ll show you everything you need to know to decide which one is the best fit for you.
If you’ve tried any of the call blockers, or spam identifiers in iOS 10, you’ve surely been disappointed. I’ve tested out a number of them and they really haven’t seemed to do anything at all. Most of the time not blocking, or even identifying calls. It appears we may now know why.
It looks to be an underlying issue with CallKit, Apple’s new framework that powers these types of apps.
