Change these 4 new security settings in iOS 13 now

If you’ve (successfully) upgraded to iOS 13 or just got hold of a new iPhone 11 or 11 Pro, there are new security settings in Apple’s latest operating system you need to learn and use. Here’s what’s important to understand.

There were 26.3 billion robocalls in the U.S. in 2018. It’s a a sickness.

You can stop the contagion thanks to a new in iOS 13 feature that directs incoming calls from unknown numbers (ie. those you don’t have in your Contacts book) to voicemail. It’s a useful feature that isn’t enabled by default.

You can enable it in Settings>Phone>toggle Silence Unknown Callers to on (Green).
