Apple introduces noise filter for phone calls with iOS 16.4
Apple has added a new feature to iOS 16.4 in the form of a noise filter for phone calls named ‘Voice Isolation’, which filters out annoying background noises. The feature was previously only available for FaceTime calls and third-party apps, but now it can be used on phone calls as well. The update was made available to registered developers and public beta participants, and is expected to be rolled out to all users soon.
How the feature works
The ‘Voice Isolation’ feature tries to focus on the user’s voice and block out surrounding noises during a call. There are three settings available via the microphone mode, which can be accessed through the Control Center during a call. However, the wide-spectrum mode that treats surrounding noise equally is currently unavailable for phone calls.
Other features of iOS 16.4
Aside from the noise filter feature, iOS 16.4 also introduces new emojis and notifications for web apps. Apple has made several improvements to its operating system to provide users with a better experience.
In conclusion, the addition of the noise filter feature on phone calls is a welcome development for iPhone users. With this update, Apple has once again demonstrated its commitment to providing users with the best possible experience.
