iOS 15 included additional Voice Isolation and Broad Spectrum audio capture modes to the iPhone’s built-in microphone. These modes, however, were only accessible for FaceTime calls and a few third-party apps. Nevertheless, in iOS 16.4, Apple adds Voice Isolation to cellular calls as well. This post will teach you how to enable voice isolation on iPhone for cellular calls in iOS 16.4.
Meanwhile, according to Apple, Voice Isolation will prioritize your voice and block out ambient noise, resulting in clearer phone calls where you can hear the person you’re chatting with and vice versa.
Voice Isolation has been available for VoIP calls made with FaceTime, WhatsApp, and other apps on devices running iOS 15 or macOS Monterey or later, and it is intended to significantly improve microphone quality during calls by reducing background noise. Before today, it was not accessible for cellular chats, with Apple giving no method to improve call quality.
How to Enable Voice Isolation for Cellular Calls on iPhone (iOS 16.4)
If you already have iOS 16.4 on your iPhone, follow these steps to activate Voice Isolation for cellular calls:
1. Pull down from the top-right corner of the screen while on a call to open Control Center.
2. Tap on Mic Mode.
3. Select Voice Isolation.
To turn off voice isolation on iPhone: Open the Control Center when on call > Mic Mode > Standard.
When you enable this mode, your iPhone will shut out external sounds to concentrate on your speech. To disable this mode, just repeat the previous steps and select the Standard option from the list.
It’s worth mentioning that Wide Spectrum mode is not yet accessible for cellular calls. During calls, iPhone does the reverse and enhances the collection of all noises around you. While utilizing FaceTime, iPad, and Mac users have access to both modes.
That’s all. This is how you can enable and activate voice isolation on your iPhone for cellular phone calls in iOS 16.4. iOS 16.4 includes a slew of new features and improvements. This contains dozens of new emojis, web app alerts, 5G Standalone support, updated HomeKit architecture, and other features.
