A few months ago we explain how to block a particular phone number in iOS 10 but what would be great to go further and block all hidden and unknown numbers hit in your iPhone? And more knowing that most of those calls are usually telemarketing and the like. Let's teach you a trick to get rid of those annoying hidden and unknown numbers on iOS 10 quickly and effectively.
The trick uses your address book, it will be only the list of numbers that will be permitted to call, the rest can not contact you by telephone. Obviously, if you frequently receive calls from people who are not in your Contacts, we recommend that you do not do so.
How to block hidden and unknown numbers on your iPhone
This method is based on the Do Not Disturb mode and options in it. We explain step by step how to do it:
1) Go to Settings and click on Do Not Disturb.
2) Check the Manual option, which activated the Do Not Disturb mode silencing your device and will be reflected with a moon at the top of the screen. Now let's customize it.
3) Click on Allow calls and select All contacts, which is precisely your list of contacts. Thus, only your contacts can call. Another even more restrictive option would mark favorites.
4) Remember that the Do Not Disturb mode completely mute your iPhone, so at the bottom you have the ability to configure it so that it is always silent or only with the iPhone locked, that is, when you're not using.
An interesting alternative to be activated in case is the repeated calls. With it, if a number - regardless of whether it is in your Contacts or not - tries to contact you repeatedly in a short period of time, the iPhone will emit its ringtone and you will receive it.
Of course, it is important that you have your Contacts calendar updated if you do not want to miss any relevant calls. With this method you will get rid of a stroke of junk calls all without having to go blocking number one by one.
