How to Set Speakerphone Mode to Automatically Activate on iPhone Calls

Set default call answer mode on iPhone by following a few simple steps on your iPhone. Enjoy the conversation loud and clear, and in a ‘hands-free’ mode.

Setting a speakerphone mode to automatically activate on iPhone calls is an amazing feature that helps everybody to communicate in a better way. Many users may not find it comfortable to tuck earphones into their ears; rather, a speakerphone gives them a facility to go “hands-free”.

While speakerphone mode is always welcome for users, there are many who just can’t manage to shift the mode during the conversation; for example, when they receive a call, they start talking with audio call mode ON, but fail to change the call to speakerphone mode.

Set Speakerphone Mode to Automatically Activate on iPhone Calls

This action will make speakerphone the default tool to receive call with. Now, users don’t need to tap on Speaker icon to jump to speakerphone; on the contrary, if you tap on Speaker icon, your call will be switched to audio call mode.

This feature certainly helps people in variety of situations; when they have to receive a phone in a crowded place; when earphone fails to work; if somebody is sharing the same cubicle with his colleague and both are on a call with their boss; when they are not comfortable holding their iPhone close to their ears; or when the entire family is in conversation with the other family.

Now you can try this action in your iPhone and ask your friend to talk with you.
