How to Route iPhone Calls to Speaker or Bluetooth Headset

Depending on your need, you can change call audio routing on your iPhone during a phone or FaceTime call. Read on to know how it works:

Whenever you receive or make any call, the audio is played through the standard built-in earpiece of your device. However, iOS lets you automatically route your iPhone calls to the speaker or Bluetooth headset.

Slightly hidden within Accessibility suite is a feature named “Call Audio Routing.” It lets you determine where audio will be played during FaceTime audio or a phone call. Read on to customize call audio routing on your iOS device based on your convenience.

Wrapping up:

Whenever I’m listening to songs via Bluetooth headphone, I prefer to select headset. But when I’m at a location where it’s a bit difficult to hear the audio during a phone call, I use the speaker on my iPhone. Thankfully, iOS offers the needed flexibility to change call routing.
