How Does Silence Unknown Caller Feature Work on iPhone?
Siri plays a major role in this overall procedure. The very moment when the silence unknown callers option is turned on, the phone doesn’t ring and the calls are automatically sent over to voice mail directly. Later on, you can filter the voice mails to check if you have missed any important call by mistake.
Intelligent Siri will only allow the numbers to ring on your iPhone that are available in Contacts, Message App or Mail. Other than that, it doesn’t count on the data saved in Gmail or Outlook as it doesn’t have access for the same. Those contacts will be silenced as well. In such cases, you might miss some important calls so you need to keep an eye on voice mails if any.

But when there arrives an emergency and you didn’t notice the unwanted call as it creeps in voice mail, there might be some issues. Well, it’s completely up to you whether to use this feature or not.
