Do you find yourself constantly receiving annoying calls from telemarketers or ex-partners? Well, you’ll be glad to know that your iPhone has a built-in feature that allows you to block any unwanted number. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the simple steps of how to block a number on your iPhone.

Step 1: Open the Phone App

The first thing you need to do is locate and open the Phone app on your iPhone. This is the app with the green phone icon, usually found on your home screen.

Step 2: Go to Recent Calls

Once you have opened the Phone app, navigate to the “Recents” tab at the bottom of the screen. This will display a list of all your recent calls.

Step 3: Select the Number

In this step, locate and select the phone number that you want to block from your recent calls list. You can scroll through the list or use the search bar at the top of the screen for quicker access.

Step 4: Tap on “i”

After selecting the desired number, tap on the small lowercase “i” icon located next to it. This will bring up additional information about that specific contact or call.

Step 5: Scroll Down and Tap on “Block This Caller”

As soon as you tap on the “i” icon, it will take you to a new page with detailed information about that contact or call. Scroll down until you see an option called “Block this Caller.” Tap on it to proceed.


If you have previously blocked this number, instead of seeing “Block this Caller,” it will display “Unblock this Caller.” Simply tap on it to remove the block.

Step 6: Confirm the Block

A pop-up window will appear, asking you to confirm your decision to block the selected number. It’s essential to double-check that this is indeed the number you want to block. If you are sure, tap on “Block Contact” to proceed.

Step 7: Success!

Congratulations! You have successfully blocked the unwanted number on your iPhone. From now on, calls and messages from this number will no longer bother you.


If you change your mind later and want to unblock a previously blocked number, follow the same steps mentioned above, but instead of tapping on “Block this Caller,” look for “Unblock this Caller” and tap on it.
