How to reduce noise on your phone

Have you ever had a phone call from someone where loud noise in the background made it difficult to hear what they were saying? There’s a simple trick to help reduce that background noise. With a couple of taps, a scroll and a flick of a switch, you can enjoy clearer-sounding calls.

It’s simple really. All you need to do is, on your iPhone, go to Settings > General > Accessibility. Then scroll down to the ‘Hearing’ section until you find ‘Phone Noise Cancellation’.

Flick that switch and you’ll have clearer-sounding phone calls from now on.

Now, that had to be the simplest tech tutorial you’ve ever read, right?
