Caller ID is a useful feature on your iPhone that allows you to see the name or number of incoming calls. By default, this feature is usually turned on, but there might be cases where it gets disabled or needs to be configured. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the steps to turn on Caller ID on your iPhone.

Step 1: Open Settings

To begin, unlock your iPhone and locate the “Settings” app. It can usually be found on your home screen.

Step 2: Find Phone Settings

In the Settings menu, scroll down and tap on the “Phone” option. This is where you can customize various phone-related settings.

Step 3: Access Caller ID Settings

Within the Phone settings, locate and tap on the “Caller ID” option. This will take you to the Caller ID configuration page.

Step 4: Enable Caller ID

On the Caller ID settings page, you will find a toggle switch next to “Show My Caller ID.” Tap on this switch to enable it if it’s currently turned off. When enabled, your iPhone will display your caller information when making outgoing calls.

Step 5: Verify Caller ID

To ensure that Caller ID is properly enabled, make a test call to another phone or ask a friend to call you back. On their device, they should see your name or number displayed as expected.


If after following these steps, caller information is still not displayed for outgoing calls, check if your network carrier supports this feature. Some carriers may have restrictions or additional configurations required.

  • Bold Text: Use bold text to highlight important information or key steps.
  • Underlined Text: Underline any specific terms or concepts that may require additional attention.
  • Tip: If you don’t want your caller information to be displayed, you can follow the same steps and disable the “Show My Caller ID” option.

Congratulations! You have successfully turned on Caller ID on your iPhone. Now you can easily identify incoming calls without any hassle.

Remember, Caller ID is a valuable feature that enhances your phone experience. With this feature enabled, you can quickly identify who is calling you and decide whether to answer the call or not. Enjoy the convenience and stay connected!
