How to Answer Calls Automatically on an iPhone with iOS 11

During the past summer, iOS 11 introduced many new features but also small features that in most cases go unnoticed. We have seen some notable changes in the calls and accessibility. For example, iOS 11 brought us the Do Not Disturb function while driving, which allows us to avoid calls in the car and automatically send a message alerting us that we are driving. But it is not the only novelty in this regard.

With Do not disturb function what we do is avoid any incoming call (or with exceptions). At the same time, there is another function that allows us precisely the opposite that is it answers calls automatically. By offering a time interval from when the phone rings until the call is answered, we can save ourselves by picking up the phone all the time, either to save time or because of accessibility problems.

From the time you have enabled the option, the calls we receive will be automatically answered after the time indicated. We can also answer before that time manually. Maybe in the day to day, it does not make much sense, but if we are driving or working and we can not pick up the phone all the time, it can be very useful.

I hope this function will help the busy people who are not able to pick up the calls. If you have any queries regarding the above method, let us know them in the comment section below and we will get back to you as soon as possible to solve all your queries.
