IF you are fed up with poor quality phone calls, Apple has a trick up its sleeve that will improve things drastically.
The special feature is also not easy to get.
It’s called Voice Isolation, and it works on any iPhone when you’re having a FaceTime chat with voice or video – as long as you’re using iOS 15 or later.
The mystery setting can only be accessed when you’re already on the call, not before, so be prepared to follow the steps next time someone rings.
To turn it on you have to swipe down from the top right corner of your screen.
Here you will find the control center.
Choose microphone mode.
To change default to language isolation.
There is also another option there called Wide Spectrum.
But doing so only lets the person on the other end of the phone hear more background noise, which is probably of limited use for things like a live concert.
Voice isolation does the complete opposite.
It uses clever technology to remove background noise and reduce things like echoes, making you easier to hear.
Better still, it’s also found on iPad and Mac, and even works when wearing AirPods.
The only problem is that every call you have to go through the setup process to turn it on – you can’t have it turn on automatically.
So why not give it a try on your next phone call and see if it improves things?
And get the person on the other end to turn it on too, so everyone benefits.
