Is your iPhone always ringing the phone, and is every call a robocall, a spammer or a cheater? It's not just you. Automatic dialing and telephone fraud is a growing problem that is likely to occur across the US for people with a telephone number. However, Apple has added a super easy way to combat these calls in iOS 13. We recommend that you enable this feature for everyone.
As John Oliver effectively demonstrated in Last week tonight robocalls, spam and fraud are a serious problem that will only worsen. Although the FCC can not do much to stop social engineering calls, it can significantly impact the success of unwanted calls to mobile phones. Even recent initiatives are a small step in the right direction.

The new call The lock feature is only available in iOS 13, which is currently only available in beta, and will be fully publicized by September 2019. However, you can use the feature today by joining to the beta program.
