Whether you’re new to iOS, or just want to pick up some useful tips and tricks, we're here to help. This is iOS Advice. Using the iPhone's speakerphone can definitely be beneficial to those who are constantly on the move. Holding an iPhone to your head can be a hassle when you’re right in the middle of something. If you’re the type of person who uses speakerphone a lot, there’s actually a way to automatically activate it when answering a call. To enable this feature, watch the video or follow the steps below: Step 1: Go into the Settings app on your device and tap on General. Step 2: Next, swipe down to the bottom and tap on Accessibility. Step 3: Scroll down to the lower half of the Accessibility screen and tap on “Incoming calls.” Step 4: Select the “Speaker” option from the list, then exit the Settings app. When this option is selected, any incoming calls will automatically switch to speakerphone when you answer them. To disable this in the future, repeat the first three steps, then select the “Default” option. Now that you’ve learned how to answer all of your calls on speakerphone, if there’s something else you’d like to see on iOS Advice, please let us know.
