Did you ever wonder why your iPhone can ‘accept’ or ‘decline’ some calls but only ‘slide to answer’ others?

Why your iPhone can ‘accept’ or ‘decline’ some calls but only ‘slide to answer’ others.

The reason why your iPhone can ‘accept’ or ‘decline’ some calls but only ‘slide to answer’ others is because your phone is in on lock.

Though this difference seems kind of weird and unnecessary, it actually makes a lot of sense. When you have your phone in your pocket or in your bag, you wouldn’t want to accidentally hit “Accept” or “Decline” because the phone gets jostled. It takes more effort to slide to unlock your phone, which is why that function exists.

It doesn’t matter whether the contact is saved on your phone or not. The only thing that makes a difference is whether the screen is locked or unlocked. When the screen is locked, your iPhone will give you the option to “slide to answer”, whereas when it is unlocked it will give you the option to “accept” or “decline” the call. So this is the simple answer to a question that has baffled many!
