There's a surprisingly simple explanation for why iPhone owners can accept calls two different ways
iPhone owners: Have you ever noticed sometimes when you receive a call you have an option to swipe to answer, while other times you're given "accept" and "decline" buttons?
We saw this tweet on Friday and it got us thinking.
We wanted to see if it would make a difference if the person calling you was in your contacts, so I had another colleague, Steven, who also has an iPhone but isn't in my contacts, give me a ring.
Nope! We got the slider again.At this point, we gave up and did what we should have just done from the beginning and Googled it.
Turns out this is a pretty common question and the answer is pretty simple: If your iPhone is locked when you receive a call, as mine was, you'll be shown a slider to answer the call, with no option to ignore it. If your phone's unlocked, you'll get the option to either dismiss or accept the call.
