Step by Step Tutorial on How to Block a Contact on iPhone 14
If you’re tired of getting notifications from someone you’d rather not hear from, blocking them on your iPhone 14 is the way to go. This tutorial will guide you through the process.
Step 1: Open the Phone App
Open the Phone app on your iPhone 14.
The Phone app is your gateway to managing all calls on your device, including blocking those pesky unwanted contacts.
Step 2: Go to Recent Calls or Contacts
Tap on ‘Recents’ or ‘Contacts’ at the bottom of the screen.
If the person you want to block has called you recently, you’ll find them in ‘Recents’. Otherwise, you can navigate to ‘Contacts’ to search for their name.
Step 3: Find the Contact to Block
Locate and tap on the contact you want to block.
Scroll through your list or use the search function to find the individual you want to block. Once you’ve found them, tap on their name to open their contact information.
Step 4: Tap on “Block this Caller”
Scroll down and tap on the option that says “Block this Caller.”
This option is usually found at the very bottom of the contact’s information page. By selecting it, you’re one step away from blocking the contact.
Step 5: Confirm Your Choice
Confirm your decision by tapping “Block Contact.”
A pop-up will appear to make sure you’re sure about blocking the contact. Once you confirm, the contact will be unable to call, message, or FaceTime you.
After you’ve completed these steps, the blocked contact will no longer be able to get in touch with you through your iPhone 14. They won’t know they’ve been blocked, but any attempts to call or message you will go unanswered.
