By default, any call that you receive on your iPhone will play voice through the standard earpiece at the top of your iPhone. And if you want to turn the voice to the loudspeaker, you manually tap on the ‘speaker’ icon during an ongoing call. While this is how most of the users use the speakerphone during the call. However, in various situations, you would want to automatically make or answer your iPhone calls with speakerphone without having to manually enable it by pressing the speaker button on the call interface. That’s what we are going to discuss here.
If you have a habit of switching the calls over to the speaker as soon as you answer or currently in a situation where you would want all the answered calls routed directly to speakerphone, you have come to the right place. Here we are going to show you how to answer iPhone calls with speakerphone automatically without tapping the speaker button during the call.
We will set your iPhone speaker as the new default audio setting for inbound and outbound calls and FaceTime audio calls. The speakerphone is useful in a number of scenarios – it frees your hands for multitasking in your office or in the kitchen and while driving.
How to answer iPhone calls with speakerphone automatically
Here is how you can set speakerphone as your default audio settings for incoming or outgoing calls:
- Launch the Settings app.
- Tap on General.
- Tap on Accessibility.
- Scroll down and tap Call Audio Routing under Interaction section.
- Choose Speaker.
That’s it, folks! Now on, all your incoming or outgoing calls will automatically go into loudspeaker mode. You can test the settings immediately by making a or receiving a call on your iPhone and when answered it will automatically enable the speaker mode. Same applied to the FaceTime calls. No matter which call type is, the Speaker button on the call interface will automatically highlight itself.
Now if you press the Speaker button during an ongoing call, it will turn it off and the voice will route through the earpiece. This basically reverses the default tradition of your iPhone calling system.
You can also set the calls to automatically connect to a Bluetooth device that you have which is more private calling setup that turning to speaker automatically.
If you want to turn it off and route all the calls to the earpiece, simple go back to Settings > General > Accessibility > Call Audio Routing and select Automatic.
