Are you tired of struggling to communicate on phone calls due to ambient noise? Have you ever been on an important call where the background noise is so loud that the person on the other end can barely hear you? Well, fear not! Apple’s latest iOS 16.4.1 update has got you covered with the new Voice Isolation feature, now available for FaceTime and also for regular phone calls.
With Voice Isolation, advanced machine learning technology distinguishes sounds, filters out background noise and prioritizes your voice, delivering clear and crisp audio to the other end of the line. This cutting-edge feature eliminates the need for shouting or constantly asking people to repeat themselves, giving you a hassle-free and enjoyable communication experience on your phone calls.
How to activate Voice Isolation
To activate Voice Isolation, simply open the Phone app, and start a regular audio phone call with someone.
HOW TO QUICKLY SILENCE THE RINGER ON YOUR PHONE
Once you’re in the call, pull down the Control Center by dragging down diagonally from the top-right corner of the screen.
Tap the Mic Mode button at the top and select the Voice Isolation option.
And if you ever need to disable Voice Isolation, it’s just as simple. Access the Control Center again, select Standard, and you’re good to go.
