In this post, we’ll see:

Note: I’m using iPhone X for this guide.

How to Set iPhone to Announce Who’s Calling You

  1. Open Settings.
  2. Tap Phone > Announce Calls.
  3. Now, you can see these options:
  • Always – announce each incoming call.
  • Headphones & Car – announce incoming calls when your device and car connected via Bluetooth or headphones are connected.
  • Headphones Only – announce incoming calls only when headphones are connected.
  • Never – don’t announce incoming calls.
  1. Choose the one you prefer.

How to Show or Hide Caller ID on iPhone

  1. Open Settings.
  2. Tap Phone > Show My Caller ID.
  3. Hit the toggle switch beside Show My Caller ID to show or hide caller ID. Remember that the Green means caller ID will be shown.

How to Silence Unknown Callers on iPhone

  1. Open Settings.
  2. Hit Phone.
  3. Tap the toggle switch beside Silence Unknown Callers to enable it. Remember that the Green means enabled.

That’s it.

From now on, when you get a call from a phone number, which is not in the recent outgoing calls, Contacts, Mail, or Messages app, then it’ll go straight to the voicemail and shown in the Recents list.

How to Turn On or Off Call Waiting

  1. Open Settings.
  2. Hit Phone > Call Waiting.
  3. Tap the toggle switch beside Call Waiting. Keep in mind that the Green means enabled.

It is enabled by default and here’s how you can disable it:

  1. Open Settings.
  2. Tap Phone.
  3. Scroll to the bottom.
  4. Tap the toggle switch beside Dial Assist.
