Are you tired of your child or employee making unauthorized calls on your iPhone? Or do you simply want to limit your own phone usage? Whatever your reason, blocking outgoing calls on your iPhone is a simple process that can help you achieve your goal. In this article, we will guide you through the steps to block outgoing calls on your iPhone.
Step 1: Enable Guided Access
The first step to blocking outgoing calls on your iPhone is to enable Guided Access. Guided Access is a built-in feature that allows you to limit the use of your iPhone to a specific app or feature. To enable Guided Access, follow these steps:
1. Go to Settings
2. Tap General
3. Tap Accessibility
4. Scroll down and tap Guided Access
5. Toggle on Guided Access
6. Set a passcode
Once Guided Access is enabled, you can use it to limit the use of your iPhone to only the apps or features that you want to allow. In this case, we will use Guided Access to limit the use of your iPhone to only the phone app, and then disable outgoing calls within that app.
Step 2: Limit Use to Phone App
Now that Guided Access is enabled, we need to limit the use of your iPhone to only the phone app. To do this, follow these steps:
1. Open the phone app
4. Toggle off the Call option
5. Tap Done in the top right corner
Now, when you open the phone app, the call option will be disabled, preventing you from making any outgoing calls.

Q: Can I still use other apps while Guided Access is enabled?
