    The constant ringing of the phone during your office hours or while doing important work can be annoying. And think about attending a spam call while expecting an important one! Well, thanks to the iOS 15 features, iPhone users have this smart trick to end the annoyance of spam calls or even constant calls from someone specific. Yes, all the iPhone 13, iPhone 12, and all other iPhone users who have iOS 15 on their device can block a specific contact as well as silence the spam calls in just a few simple steps.

    However, it is worth noting that once you block a contact on your iPhone, you will no longer get any calls from that person, not even texts and FaceTime requests. This iPhone trick will send all the blocked call requests into voicemail, which will give them a hint that they have been blocked. But don't worry! In the case of text, you will never receive messages from the blocked contacts, but it will appear normal for the sender. So, you can go ahead to stop the spam calls or block a specific contact with a few taps on your iPhone.

    How to block a phone number on iPhone

    • Open the Phone app on your iPhone 13, iPhone 12, or any other model running on iOS 15.
    • Tap on the Favorites, Recents, or Voicemail tab.
    • Then, tap the "i" on the side of the screen of the number or contact you want to block.
    • Now, scroll down, then tap Block this Caller.
    • Now, tap Contacts, tap the contact you want to block, scroll down, and then tap Block this Caller.
