How to Enable Full Screen Incoming Calls on iPhone in iOS 14

In iOS 14, Apple introduced persistent call banners instead of full-screen notifications. This means that when your iPhone is unlocked, regular, FaceTime, and third-party VoIP incoming calls take only a small space at the top. This compact UI feature is turned on by default. However, if you want a big contact picture in incoming calls, or do not like the new style and prefer the old way, here is how to activate full-screen calls in iOS 14 and iPadOS 14.

How to Enable Full Screen Incoming Calls on iPhone in iOS 14

  1. Open the Settings app on your iOS 14 device
  2. Scroll down and tap on Phone.
  3. Tap on Incoming Calls.
  4. Select Full Screen.turn on full screen call notifications in ios 14 on iphone

From now, all incoming calls when your iPhone is unlocked will take the full screen – like it does in iOS 13 and all previous versions.

Incoming calls when the device is locked still take the whole screen (which is good).

To turn it back on, follow the same steps, and choose Banner.

How to Enable Full Screen FaceTime Calls in iOS 14 and iPadOS 14

The steps for iPad FaceTime calls and calls shown on iPad from iPhone, are almost the same. Here is how.

  1. Open the Settings app on your devices
  2. Tap on FaceTime.
  3. Tap on Incoming Calls.tap on facetime and then tap on incoming call on ipad running ipados 14
  4. Choose Full Screen.turn on full screen facetime call notifications on iPad
From now incoming calls on apps like Skype, WhatsApp, etc. will also occupy the full screen.

Signing off…

This is how you can turn off banner incoming call notifications and choose the full-screen mode on the iPhone and iPad.

iOS 14 has introduced several changes, and most of them have been amazing. Take, for example, App Library that lets you have a clean, clutter-free Home Screen. You can even go the Android way and choose to have zero app icons on the iPhone Home Screen!
