Mind blowing iPhone hack will make your phone announce who is calling you

YOU can have your iPhone read the name of the person calling you.

It works through Siri, meaning you can find out who’s ringing your bell without having to look at your phone’s display.

The Announce Calls feature on iPhone was introduced in 2016 with the release of iOS 10.

It was recently highlighted in a viral TikTok video posted by the user @marlonwireless.

When enabled, Siri, Apple’s virtual assistant, “speaks” the name of the contact who’s calling you.

If you don’t have the person’s number saved in your contacts, Sir will read their number out loud.

You can then decide if you want to reply without having to look at your device.

The feature is useful when you’re driving or otherwise away from your phone and can’t look at the display.

To try it yourself, go to Settings > Siri & Search > Announce Calls.

You can then decide when Siri should announce callers, e.g. B. only if you use headphones.

If you want names or phone numbers to be read out loud for every call, select Always.

In March, Apple gave iPhone users the option to choose a gender-neutral voice for Siri.

When Siri is selected, it sounds less explicitly male or female than the two options could previously select.

The move is part of Apple’s effort to make its voice-activated helper, launched in 2011, more inclusive.

The company says the new voice was recorded by a member of the LGBTQ+ community, though it didn’t provide any further details.

“We’re excited to introduce a new Siri voice for English speakers that gives users more ways to choose a voice to speak to them,” Apple said.

“Millions of people around the world rely on Siri to get things done every day, so we’re working to make the experience feel as personal as possible.”

Voice was introduced with iOS 15.4.
