Are you tired of receiving unwanted calls or messages on your iPhone? Fortunately, there is a simple solution to this problem – you can easily block a number on your iPhone.

In this tutorial, we will guide you through the steps to block a number and prevent it from contacting you. Let’s get started!

Block a Number on an iPhone:

If you want to block a specific number on your iPhone, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Phone App: Launch the Phone app from your home screen. It is the green icon with a white phone receiver.
  2. Access Recent Calls List: Tap on the “Recents” tab at the bottom of the screen. This will display a list of all your recent calls.
  3. Identify the Number: Scroll through the list and find the number you want to block.

    You can also use the search bar at the top to quickly find it.

  4. Select the Number: Once you have found the number, tap on it to open its details.
  5. Block the Number: Scroll down to find and tap on “Block this Caller” option. A confirmation pop-up will appear on your screen.
  6. Confirm Blocking: To proceed with blocking, tap “Block Contact”. The number will now be added to your blocked list.

Note: Blocking a contact will prevent them from calling, messaging, or FaceTiming you.

If someone is not in your recent calls list but you still want to block them, don’t worry! You can still add them to your blocked list by following these alternative steps:

  1. Open Settings: Locate the “Settings” app on your home screen. It is a gray icon with gears.
  2. Navigate to Phone Settings: In the Settings menu, scroll down and tap on “Phone”.
  3. Call Blocking & Identification: Under the Phone settings, select “Call Blocking & Identification”.
  4. Add New Number: Tap on “Block Contact” or “Blocked Contacts” to access your blocked list.
  5. Add a Number: Tap on “Add New..” and select the contact you want to block from your contacts list. You can also manually enter a number by selecting “Add New Number”.

Note: You can unblock a number by following these same steps and selecting the “Unblock” option instead.

Congratulations! You have successfully learned how to block a number on your iPhone. Now you can enjoy a peaceful experience without unwanted interruptions.
