Share This:

If you’re an iPhone user, you may be interested in the new feature that allws you to block contacts. This feature is available on all Apple iPhones and can be accessed through the “Settings” tab. Blocking a contact means that any calls or messages from that person will no longer show up on your device. This is a great way to keep unwanted communication from reaching you.

When someone you’ve blocked tries to call you, their call will immediately go to voicemail as if your phone was turned off. They won’t know they have been blocked unless they hear their own voice message after calling. Additionally, if the blocked caller leaves a voicemail, it won’t appear with your regular messages.

Texting someone who has been blocked on an iPhone is also not possible – any messages sent by them will not be received by the phone’s owner. Outgoing messages are not affected by blocking and can stll be sent as normal.

It’s important to note that on iPhones, blocking only applies to incoming calls and texts so outgoing ones are unaffected. Additionally, even if the recipient does not have voicemail set up, it is still possible for them to see if a blocked number is attempting to contact them because the call will still appear in recent calls list but will ring only once before going straight to voicemail.

In conclusion, blocking contacts on an iPhone provdes users with additional security and peace of mind when it comes to managing their communications with others. It’s important to understand how blocking works and its limitations so users can make the most of this great feature!
