Although we have been with iOS 10 officially on our devices for more than two weeks, we continue to discover new features that have been included in the latest operating system on the block. Today we want to introduce you to «Announce calls», a feature that we It will allow the iPhone to tell you with voice who is calling you.
Announce calls will allow us to remove a sound for our calls and have it replaced by Siri's voice telling you who is making the call. This can be very useful especially when we are driving, since allows us to know who is calling us without having to look at the mobile and thus be able to decide whether to take the call or not worry about it (all this connected to the bluetooth system of the car, we are not advising to take the mobile while driving). Therefore, we tell you how you can activate it.
- Let's start by going to the application Settings, where we will go to the section Telephone which is default in the operating system.
- Once inside, we will see under the "CALLS" section the option Announce calls, which by default is disabled ("Never").
- Now, within Announce calls we have several options:
- Always display: Thus we will have, as its title says, this option always activated and it will always announce the name of the person making the call or, failing that, the number.
- Headphones & Car: By selecting this option, they will only be announced if the iPhone is connected to a headset (either bluetooth or wired) or a bluetooth system in the car.
- Headphone only: She describes herself very well. They will only be announced when you are using headphones.
Now you just have to choose the option that best suits your needs / tastes and iOS 10 will tell you who is calling you without the need to look at your mobile to know who it is.
