There are times when we can’t attend the calls because we are busy some times,Perhaps we are driving or your hands are too dirty to pick up the iphone.Well,you won’t have to worry anymore as iOS 11 comes with a new handy feature that ensure’s you won’t miss out on important calls again.
Once you enable the new auto-answer option in iOS 11,it will help us to automatically answer phone calls as soon as you receive them.
Here is how you can enable the new auto-answer feature in iOS 11 to answer phone calls automatically;
- Open the settings app on your iphone.
- Tap on General.
- Tap on Accessibility,then go to Call Audio Routing.
- Tap on Auto-Answer calls
- Turn on the toggle.
We can also set the amount of time to wait before the incoming call is answered automatically,This gives some time to decide whether we want to reject the call or not.
The Auto-Answer calls works with the default calling app only and not with the third-party apps such as WhatsApp,Skype,Duo etc.
While this is a very handy feature,it has some drawbacks also.The most obvious is that the phone could be answered without your knowledge.Secondly,you might not have control over the calls that will be answered.For instance,an incoming call could be from a spam number,it would be answered automatically.
