iPhone users running iOS 6 will find some of the best thought over concepts coming to reality after updating to the new firmware from Apple. You might have heard of Siri and Facebook integration, but what matters most to any phone users is definitely the call handling, and iOS 6 has two major features that will take the experience to the next level.
The following is the two new iOS 6 phone management feature that will give more control while handling phones.
iOS 6 Reply and Remind feature:
iOS 6 comes with a new set of options to deal with the incoming calls, like when you are not ready to take a call instead of ignoring or dropping it, now you can swipe your finger over the Phone shortcut, which will provide you with two different options -”Reply with Message” or “Remind me Later”.
1. If you select the Reply With Message option you will be allowed to use one of several preset text messages like “call you back later”, “busy in meeting”, or even you can compose you own message to make the caller aware that you will call him soon.
2. On the other hand if you select Remind me Later, then you will get option to select when you want to be reminded about the missed call, with options such as when you get home, in an hour, when you get to work, and the iOS 6 will utilize your current location to set your option.
Do not Disturb:
Well, as the name suggest this is a new toggle button located just above the Notifications inside the iPhone’s Settings app. You can use the option to control all incoming calls by diverted them either to voicemail or notifications. This iOS 6 unique feature has its own set of preferences, whicy you can access from the settings panel.
The Do Not Disturb feature allows you to customize how the feature works for you. You can set your own timetable as when you don’t wish to be disturbed. However, Apple has even thought over the emergency situation and will let the phone bypass the “Do Not Disturb” feature making use of the “Allow Calls From” option to receive essential calls from contacts included with your Favorites contact list or from select group of people.
The “Repeated Calls” option determines if the caller has tried to make repeated calls within short interval of time to put it in the emergency category and the call will not be ignored.
