How to block spam calls on iPhone

First, make sure you’re using iOS 13 software or newer.

Next, you’ll need to download a spam blocking and call identifying app.

Ones with good reviews include TrueCallerNomorobo and Hiya.

Once you’ve picked which app you want and downloaded it, open your iPhone’s Settings menu.

Scroll down and select “Call Blocking & Identification”.

You should see your chosen app as an option in this section.

Switch the toggle next to it on so the app can start blocking your spam calls.

The app may not be able to block all calls if the spam numbers aren’t on its list.

However, it should provide you with much more peace than not having the app.

You can always download multiple apps to try and take advantage of what calls they can block.

iPhone tricks to try today

Here are some of the best…

  • Typing cursor – When typing, hold down the space bar to turn your keyboard into a trackpad, letting you move around words and sentences more easily
  • Close all Safari tabs – To do this in one go, simply hold the overlapped squares in the bottom right-hand corner, and press close all tabs
  • Delete lots of photos quickly – Hold down on a photo and then drag your finger diagonally in Photos to select lots of images at once, then hit delete
  • Convert currency quickly – Swipe down from the top of your Home screen (or swipe left to right on an iPhone X), then tap in the bar and type a currency (like $200) and it will automatically covert to your local currency
  • Check if you’re due a battery upgrade – Batteries inside smartphones degrade over time. Just go to Settings > Battery > Battery Health, and check out the Maximum Capacity reading. Generally a battery is considered worn when you’re down to 80% capacity. If you’re below, you can buy a battery swap from Apple
  • Move apps around faster – Hold an app until it starts wiggling, then (while still holding) tap other apps, causing them to stack so you can move them around easier
