Method 2: Block Spam Calls on iPhone

You can block spam callers on your iPhone by downloading your preferred app from the App store. However, in iOS 13 update let you block spam or unidentified callers without using third-party apps. You can find the feature by going to Settings —> Phone and scrolling down to “call silencing and blocked contacts.”

When you enable this setting, calls from “unknown” numbers will automatically be sent to the phone’s voicemail, so you won’t have to get disturbed from telemarketers, robocalls and other annoyances.

According to apple, the feature uses Siri Intelligence to detect numbers in your messages or Mail app, not just your contacts saved on your phone. That way most likely you never miss a call from someone you previously communicated with.

Please keep in mind that this new setting from Apple will give you a relief from fraudsters but, is not a totally foolproof solution. Also, there’ll be a possibility you could miss a call you weren’t intending to block if you do enable this setting. So if you are expecting a call that much important, you may better turn off the option just in case.

Method 3: Block All Incoming Calls on iPhone

The previous two methods block contacts you have on your phone. That means your targeted contacts cannot call and send message to you. They are restricted from calling and sending messages to your phone. So if you just want no one to disturb you while playing a game or watching your favorite movie on your phone then, you can enable Do Not Disturb mode. Do Not Disturb mode automatically silences Calls and Messages that coming to your phone. Also, you can schedule a specific time for Do Not Disturb. If you want to turn on Do Not Disturb option do these:

First, open your iPhone’s Settings app.
