Silence Unknown Callers

My wife and I get our fair share of spam phone calls on our iPhones. I think we can all agree, it is just annoying and ends up wasting our time. There is a way in iOS 13 and 14 to eliminate many of these spam calls by using the Silence Unknown Callers setting. Here is how you do that.

Silence Unknown Callers

The place to activate the Silence Unknown Callers feature is in the Settings area. Once in Settings, tap on “Phone”.

In the next screen, tap on Silence Unknown Callers at the bottom of the window.

Be sure and read the information in the next screen which describes how it works.

If you are good with how Silence Unknown Callers works, then toggle it to the ON position.

That is all there is to it. If you discover you are missing important phone calls, then just toggle this setting OFF.

Conclusion

If you get many spam calls, then Silence Unknown Callers is a great way to go.
