Starting iOS 13 and iOS 14 iPhone will make your life easier by automatically protecting user from unknown callers. Users are able to enable a setting that will not only silence calls from unknown callers but it will also protect the user from spam calls, something we can all be thankful about.
When Silence Unknown Callers option in iOS 13 and iOS 14 is enabled iPhone isn’t just silencing calls from unknown calls. Instead it uses Siri intelligence to see if a number is found in contacts list, Mail and Messages. If iOS is unable to find a match for the incoming call’s number the phone call will directly be sent to voicemail.
This is great for many reasons as silencing all calls from unknown callers would not be suitable for most users. The use of Siri intelligence and verifying first whether you have been in contact with the caller via mail or messages makes this feature even more powerful and useful for an even larger number of iPhone users.
