iOS 16.4 Features Voice Isolation Feature For Regular Phone Calls
Apple’s iOS 16. Release Candidate update is now available for download and the company’s release notes indicate that there is a new feature coming.
The feature, dubbed Voice Isolation, is designed to make it easier for people to hear each other on a cellular call.
Voice Isolation is already available for internet calling apps like FaceTime and WhatsApp and was added as part of the iOS 15 update. But now Apple is getting ready to enable it on cellular phone calls as well.
The feature promises to remove background noise to make it easier for callers to hear each other while improving the quality of the audio picked up by the iPhone’s microphone. MacRumors notes that enabling the feature for FaceTime and other internet-based calls is as simple as tapping a few things in Control Center.
On a FaceTime call, Voice Isolation can be enabled by activating control center, tapping on the Mic Mode option, and choosing the Voice Isolation option, so the feature may be able to be activated in a similar way for voice calls.
It isn’t yet clear when Apple intends to make iOS 16.4 available for download to everyone but considering we already have the first Release Candidate update in the hands of developers it doesn’t seem likely that we will have to wait all that long.
