How to reduce background noise for cellular calls on iPhone


Apple recently launched the voice isolation feature for FaceTime and other video calls. It essentially suppresses background noise and amplifies your voice to offer clear calls. However, this feature was not available for cellular calls until now. Now, with the iOS 16.4 update for iPhones, users can use the Voice Isolation feature for cellular calls as well.

Having said that, you need to be on iOS 16.4 version as well as the person on the other end, in order to get a clear call. If you haven’t updated to the above version, go to Settings > General > Software Update. Then, check for updates and download and install the update.

Once you are on the latest iOS version, follow the steps given below.

Enable Sound Isolation for Cellular Calls on iPhone

step 1: While on a cellular phone call, swipe down from the top on most newer iPhones to open Control Center. On iPhone SE models, you’ll need to swipe up from the bottom to access Control Center.

step 2: Now, tap on Mic Mode.

step 3: Finally, choose Voice Isolation.

With Voice Isolation selected, your voice will be clearer to the other person because your iPhone will automatically prioritize your voice over the surrounding noise.

Apart from regular calls, the feature can also be used for video calls thanks to FaceTime and other third-party apps.

In addition, Apple introduced Voice Isolation as well as Wide Spectrum, however, this feature was and still is restricted to FaceTime calls.

Wide spectrum is the opposite of voice isolation.

What the wide spectrum feature does is that it amplifies background noise while keeping your voice the same. So the other person gets to hear your voice as well as what is happening around you.

We expect Apple to release this feature soon for cellular calls as well.
