You’re expecting an important phone call. Wait, that might be it right now. But you can’t answer it. Maybe you’re driving and don’t want to reach for the phone. Maybe you’re cooking, and your hands are wet or greasy. Maybe you’re exercising and don’t want to fall off the treadmill.
Whatever the reason, you just can’t pick up your phone right now or press the button to answer the call. If you don’t want to miss the call, there is a solution.
Courtesy of iOS 11, you can tell your iPhone to answer incoming calls automatically. The trick is to access the setting for Call Audio Routing and turn on the option for Auto-Answer Calls. You can then set the number of seconds in which a call is automatically answered. You can even automatically answer FaceTime audio or video calls, Wi-Fi calls, and calls from services such as Skype. Let’s try it out.
