How to enable Voice Isolation on iPhone to improve call quality

  1. During an ongoing call, you’ll have to swipe down from the top right corner of the screen and bring up the “Control Center”
  2. In the Control Center, you should tap the “Mic Mode” tile
  3. Once you’ve selected the Mic Mode option, you’ll get three options to choose from –
  • Standard Mic – This is the default option and it won’t filter out noise
  • Voice Isolation – This mode will isolate the background sounds on iPhone and allow other people on the call to hear your voice clearly
  • Wide spectrum – This mode is designed for capturing all the sound by the mic into your call
  1. Here, you will need to select the “Voice Isolation” option before returning to the phone call

Note: You should ask the call recipient if there’s any change in your voice and that the background noise is gone. The voice isolation mode will only be enabled for a particular phone call. The mic mode will automatically return to the standard mode once that call ends. You will have to enable Voice Isolation once again when you make the next call.
