When you miss a call on your iPhone, the Phone app tells you who the caller was and when they called. But one thing it doesn’t show you is how long the caller waited for you to pick up before ending the call.
iOS developer MiRO92 recognized that the phone-calling experience on iPhones (even the latest and greatest ones) left quite a bit to be desired. As a result, a new and free jailbreak tweak called YellowPages was conceived.
Despite how iPhones are personal pocket computers with so much more capability than merely placing phone calls, the native Phone app is still an integral part of the device’s user experience. Still, Apple almost never provides any upgrades to this seemingly under appreciated component of the iPhone.
If you ever need to hide your identify from someone that you’re attempting to call from your iPhone, then you can utilize the “Show My Caller ID” option in the Settings app to toggle displaying your caller ID on or off when making outgoing phone calls. On the other hand, finding this option in the Settings app can feel a little like navigating a complex labyrinth.
The iOS 14.5 update that launched almost a month ago fixed an annoying bug impacting iOS 14.0-14.4.2 devices in which when an iPhone connected to CarPlay, any paired Apple Watches would inconveniently stop notifying the user about incoming phone calls.
We all probably have at least a few favorite contacts saved on our iPhones, whether it’s close family or our best of friends. Fortunately, Apple allows you to set up favorite contacts in the Phone app so that it’s easier to get in touch with them when life necessitates it.
Designating a contact as a ‘favorite’ contact in the Phone app moves that person’s contact information to the dedicated Favorites tab at the bottom of the app, but if you were looking for even more added convenience, then we think you’ll come to appreciate a newly released and free jailbreak tweak called CallFavorites by iOS developer pixelomer.
I’ve been a loyal AT&T customer for the better part of a decade now, and while I’ve definitely experimented with other carriers in my area – Sprint and even Verizon – I always found myself happier with the AT&T experience and crawled right back before my old and grandfathered plan lapsed.
However, while AT&T certainly takes the lead for cellular data speeds in my area, coverage is one attribute that it lags behind in, especially in the more rural parts. That’s why I decided to try something new: Google Fi for iPhone.
If you’re in a location with poor cellular service or none at all, but can connect to Wi-Fi, consider using it for calls on your iPhone. Once enabled, you can make and receive calls without worrying about the cell signal.
Here, we’ll show you what you need to know before you use Wi-Fi Calling on iPhone and how to enable it for your iPhone and other devices.
We’ve all heard of butt or pocket-dialing – the act of accidentally calling someone with your phone as it sits in your pocket. In theory, this seems a lot less likely on modern devices that require Face ID or Touch ID authentication to function; nevertheless, it still seems to happen to some people either because they don’t lock their device before pocketing it or because of some other mind-bending anomaly.
Despite how seemingly impossible butt-dialing or inadvertent smartphone operations on a pocketed phone might be at first glance, those who experience these anomalies for one reason or another can now take advantage of a newly released and free jailbreak tweak called PocketProtector by iOS developer Brady Holland (Squiddy) to prevent them from happening, once and for all.
Most people I know like to configure custom ringtone(s) on their iPhone so that they aren’t listening to the boring stock ringtones every time someone tries to get ahold of them. Users have the option of purchasing ringtones from Apple’s iTunes Store or creating their own with the help of dedicated software.
If the iPhone you plan to create ringtones for is jailbroken, then you now have the additional option of using a new jailbreak tweak dubbed Sonic by iOS developer Zeph. By design, Sonic offers users an all-in-one solution for creating and importing ringtones and text tones to the ringtone/text tone libraries from the iPhone itself.
If you’re new to iPhone, you might still be getting used to the ins and outs of it and its features. In the meantime, you’re taking and making phone calls that fill up your history. If you’d like to delete your iPhone call history, we’ll show you how to remove all calls or just certain ones.
