call screening

iOS & iPadOS

Hi, does iOS have a call screen feature like pixel phones do where Siri can screen your calls for you? If not Apple needs to add this.

In the Phone section of the settings app, you will find a setting to block unknown callers. This will send all calls that are not in your contacts list, nor in your recent calls made list directly to voice mail.

Hope that's what you are looking for.

Along with setting my phone to silence unknown callers, I also use the YouMail Ap.

The google call screening will put a transcript on your phone of what the person says. example the phone will ring. It will ask who is calling and why so they might say John i'm with x cable cI'm on the way to install your cable. You will see that than have the ability to answer that call.
