In this post, we will walk you through some useful phone tips and tricks for your iPhone. Before we dive in, make sure that you are now running a modern version of iOS.
Disable iPhone calls on other devices
If you are now using the same account on multiple devices, all of them will start ringing when you have got an incoming call on your iPhone.

To do this, you simply head to Settings, select Phone > Calls on other devices and toggle off the switch at the top.
Blocking numbers is pretty simple on your iPhone. To do this, you can head to the Recents list and hit the i button next to the caller’s name. After that, you simply need to tap on Block this caller and confirm your action.
