When you receive a phone call, it always helps to know who is calling. It helps you mentally prepare for speaking to the caller and keeping your composure. However, there are sometimes you can get a caller with ‘No Caller ID’. What this means is that the caller has blocked you from seeing their phone number so they’re unknown until you pick up. If you don’t want to receive these kinds of calls, you can decide to block ‘No Caller ID’ calls on your iPhone.
Before you do this, it is important to be sure you actually can afford to. Because there’s a slight chance you can miss important calls if you decide to block unknown callers. It’s a slight chance because, usually, calls from credible sources do not hide their caller ID. But it’s still worth putting into consideration.
