Once you enable Voice Isolation, the feature will use machine learning to distinguish between background sounds and your voice, prioritizing the sound of your voice for the phone call. This should help improve the clarity of voice communication on iPhone calls and reduce other sound distractions from the environment.

The other person on the call should immediately notice an improvement in call quality, especially if there is ambient background noise from things like a leaf blower, vacuum, engine, or other common tasks. The feature can even help block out background music and other ambient sounds too.

While this feature is incredibly useful, it’s important to note that it is only available on iPhones running iOS 16.4 or newer. If you don’t see this feature on your iPhone, make sure you’re running the latest version of iOS.

It’s worth noting that the Voice Isolation feature to remove background noise has been available on FaceTime calls on iPhone, iPad, and Mac for a while now, but now this feature is available on cellular calls made from iPhone too.

In conclusion, if you’re someone who frequently finds themselves in noisy or distracting environments while on the phone, Voice Isolation is a must-have feature to enable on your iPhone. It’s a simple process that can greatly improve your phone call quality and make your conversations much more productive and enjoyable.
