How to enable full-screen caller ID on iPhone

With iOS, Apple introduced a compact call interface that shows calls as a small banner at the top of the display when you are using your iPhone. Prior to this, when you got a call, your whole display would be blocked with full-screen caller ID. While full-screen caller ID takes up the whole display, it does ensure you never miss a call.

If you prefer the old full-screen caller ID in place of the banner style because you are missing calls, you can switch between the two pretty easily. Here’s how to enable full-screen caller ID on iPhone in a few simple steps.

Learn how to enable full-screen caller ID on iPhone

  1. Launch the Settings app from the Home screen on your iPhone.
  2. Go to Phone.full-screen caller ID
  3. Tap on Incoming Calls.full-screen caller ID
  4. Lastly, tap Full Screen.full-screen caller ID

Now, any incoming calls will feature full-screen caller ID with full-screen contact pictures. Note that FaceTime and calls from other apps will also appear on the full screen instead of a banner.

The one disadvantage of this is that you cannot dismiss an incoming call by swiping it away like you could with a banner call. However, you can still use the volume buttons on your iPhone to silence a call or double-tap the power button to decline it.
