How to Make a Three Way Call on iPhone

Being able to make a three-way call on your iPhone is a useful feature that allows you to connect with multiple people simultaneously. Whether you need to have a business conference call or simply want to chat with two friends at once, this tutorial will guide you through the process step by step.

Step 1: Make the First Call

To initiate a three-way call, start by making the first call as you normally would. Open the Phone app on your iPhone and enter the number or select a contact from your list. Tap the green phone icon to dial the call.

Step 2: Add the Second Call

Once you are connected with the first person, locate and tap on the “Add Call” button. This button is represented by a plus (+) sign and can usually be found at the bottom center of your screen. Doing so will put your current call on hold and allow you to make another call.


If your iPhone is set up for Wi-Fi calling, you may not see an “Add Call” button. In such cases, tap on “Merge Calls” after initiating the second call instead.

Step 3: Dial or Select Another Contact

After tapping on “Add Call,” you will be taken back to your phone app, where you can dial another number or select a contact from your list. Once again, tap on the green phone icon to initiate this second call.


If necessary, you can also access your recent calls list or favorites list by tapping on their respective tabs at the bottom of your screen.

Step 4: Merge Calls

After the second call connects, you will see two buttons at the bottom of your screen: “Merge” and “Add Call.” Tap on “Merge” to merge all three calls together into a single conference call.


If you want to add more than two people to your call, repeat steps 2-4 until all participants are connected.

Step 5: Manage Your Conference Call

Once your three-way call is established, you can manage it easily using the on-screen options. You can mute or unmute yourself by tapping on the microphone icon, switch between calls by tapping on the individual caller’s name or number, or end a specific call by tapping on the red phone icon next to their name.

Step 6: End the Three-Way Call

To end your conference call and disconnect all participants, simply tap on the red phone icon in the center of your screen. This will end all active calls and return you to the Phone app.

Congratulations! You have successfully learned how to make a three-way call on your iPhone. This feature is not only convenient but also efficient when it comes to connecting with multiple people at once. So go ahead and enjoy hassle-free conference calls with friends, family, or colleagues!
