How to Block Spam Phone Calls in iOS 10 on iPhone

Don’t want to put up with spam calls from scammers or robocallers? You have the option to block phone calls in iOS 10 on your iPhone.

One of the things that annoy me no end is the random calls from telemarketers or scammers. With iOS 10 allowing developers the extensions for the stock Phone app, it has become quite easy to block spam calls. Fortunately, I will no longer be disturbed by the unsolicited calls.

The third-party apps which are developed to block spam calls keep a huge database of phone numbers which have been found to be spam. As a result, whenever any incoming calls arrive on your iPhone, the app first checks it. If the phone number is spam, it blocks the phone calls right away.
