In this tutorial, we’ll going to lay out how you can use your HomePod as a speakerphone for phone calls handed off from your iPhone, manage multiple calls on your wireless speaker, switch between them easily and more.
Some iPhone X owners are unable to accept incoming calls because the display gets delayed from turning on, thereby preventing the user from tapping the virtual button required to answer or reject the call.
Amazon Web Services, a subsidiary of Amazon, today announced it’s launched Chime, a new Voice over IP (VoIP) and video conferencing platform for iPhone, iPad, Mac, Windows and Android.
Aimed at business users, Chime allows you to host or join virtual meetings, take advantage of content and screen sharing across platforms and more.
Amazon promises noise-cancelling wideband audio and crystal clear high-definition video with the new service. Chime for iPhone is available at no charge from App Store. The Mac client can be downloaded directly from Amazon.
AT&T on Tuesday introduced a new service for automated fraud and spam call-blocking. They’re calling it Call Protect, and the system works like an email spam filter—identifying numbers believed to be associated with fraud and either blocking them or flagging them with a warning.
Also like other spam filters, users will be able to whitelist specific numbers to rectify any false positives, and even set temporary call blocking for unconfirmed spam calls. These more granular controls will be accessible from the Call Protect companion app on iOS and Android devices.
QuickDial Lite is a new free jailbreak tweak intended for iPhones that allows you to quickly dial up to 9 of your favorite phone numbers in fewer keystrokes.
With this tweak, you can assign certain phone numbers to individual number keys on the keypad in the Phone app. Afterwards, you will be able to tap and hold on any of those assigned keys to automatically initiate a phone call to the number assigned to the key you held down.
One of the more useful features for iPhones that comes packed inside of Apple’s new iOS 10 release is voicemail transcription, which transcribes your voicemails into text so you can read them rather than listen to them.
The feature is available to users in the United States and it’s very much still in its beta stages despite the fact that iOS 10 is now a public firmware, but if you want to know how to use it, or to see if you can use it yet, then you’ll be happy to know it’s quite easy to follow.
Starting with iOS 10, Apple is allowing a new type of applications in the App Store: apps that can detect and block spam phone calls from telemarketers, debt collectors, scammers, and automated systems. These apps act as an extension of the Phone application, and in theory, they can help you filter out those calls from people you don’t want to talk to.
In this post, we will have a look at how these applications work and how to use them.
