iPhone 14/13/12 Pro/Max: How To Enable Announce Calls

The iOS 10 software update brought about Apple’s emergency call feature for the iPhone. And you can speak the caller’s name thanks to this feature. It can be useful if you can’t easily access your phone or if someone calls you while you’re driving, listening to music, or listening to a podcast. It will also tell you about calls when your iPhone is in silent mode but is connected to your car’s Bluetooth or another Bluetooth-enabled device. If an unknown caller calls you, your phone will either read the caller’s number or announce it as an unknown caller.

This article on iChumz will show you how to turn on the “announce calls” feature on any iPhone model.
